Pet Shop Boys will headline this summer

Yorkshire music festival Bingley Music Live has confirmed a host of special artists and acts for this year’s big three-day event.

World-renowned duo Pet Shop Boys, who have sold over 50 million records worldwide, will be one of the headliners this summer.

Labelled as the most successful UK electronic act of all time, the Pet Shop Boys have clocked up no less than 42 Top 30 singles, 22 Top 10 UK singles hits and have won three Brit Awards.

Headlining the other nights will be chart-topping hip-hop artist Example, who happens to be the first artist to return as a headliner, who first performed at the festival back in 2010.

Yorkshire heroes Shed Seven will come to their home county as they approach their 25th anniversary, being the band who tore up the Britpop scene in the mid-90s and amassed no less than fifteen Top 40 singles and four Top 40 albums.

Other highlights will include Gorgon City and MNEK, fresh from their joint top five smash ‘Ready For Your Love’, the phenomenal Naughty Boy and festival favourites Simon and Oscar from Ocean Colour Scene.

Night Engine, who supported the Kaiser Chiefs last year, will also be appearing as well as singer/songwriters Chloe Howl and John Lennon McCullagh.

Chloe was nominated in the BBC Sound of 2014 and Brit Awards Critics Choice, while John was signed to the new 359 Music label by Alan McGee, the man responsible for Oasis and last year’s headliners Primal Scream.

Acts who were confirmed previously include Bipolar Sunshine, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Eliza and the Bear, The Wytches and We are Catchers.

Three times Brit Award winning Gaz Coombes of Supergrass will also be appearing as Special Guest.

Bingley Music Live will be held on 29, 30 and 31 August.
