Bingley Live 2014The organisers of Bingley Music Live have announced the first eight new artists taking to the Discovery Stage at this year’s festival.

The Bradford Council-organised festival, with a history of championing new and under the radar artists, takes place in Bingley’s Myrtle Park on the weekend of 4, 5, 6 September.

Headlining the Discovery Stage on Sunday will be singer-songwriter Scott Matthews, with Adam French taking the second spot.

Scott earned the support of BBC DJs such as Jo Whiley, Marc Radcliffe and Zane Lowe upon the release of the heartfelt single ‘Elusive’ and his third album has Robert Plant on guest vocals.

Adam French, who will also be joining him, plays an array of instruments including guitar, piano, bass and drums and first caught the attention of BBC Introducing having toured Africa.

These artists will be preceded by ‘Coffee House Sessions Takeover’ with Kimberly Anne as headliner and Runaway [Go], Sam Brookes, Eoin Glackin, James McLaren and The Carnabys also performing.

The ‘Coffee House Session Takeover’ headliner Kimberly Ann, recently supported Bingley Music Live’s main stage artist, Ella Eyre, on tour.

Many acts previously introduced at Bingley Music Live are now hitting the big time, proof that the event’s line up is a reliable predictor of tomorrow’s big recording stars.

Artist booker for Bingley Music Live, Lee O’Hanlon, said: “People may not have heard of them yet but these are not only the very best new artists, but also hidden, eclectic gems of some of the greatest artists in the country.

“It’s fantastic to be able to showcase tomorrow’s artists playing alongside established acts. We put great effort into keeping abreast of the best artists around, which is why so many other festivals book them the year after they appear at Bingley Music Live.

People going to this year’s festival will not only be seeing established acts such as James, Ash, Embrace, Cast, Labrinth and Ella Eyre but they can also get a first look at future world class acts for a value for money price of just £49 plus booking fee for the entire weekend.
