Bingley Weekender has announced Pixies as their final headliner for 2021; with the Massachusetts outfit closing the festival on the Sunday night.
Pixies are one of the biggest live acts music. And it’ll be their first visit to Yorkshire since their appearance at Leeds O2 in 2019. They’ll be part of a stellar weekend line-up that features legendary Halifax indie outfit Embrace and co-headliners Primal Scream on the Friday night, and The Libertines taking star-billing on the Saturday. The festival takes place from August 6th to 8th, 2021.
“Iconic and influential”
Reacting to the Pixies addition, festival organiser Steve Davis said: “it’s an absolute honour to be welcoming one of the most iconic and influential alternative indie bands of all time to the Bingley Weekender in 2021”.
“We were blown away by the public response to the first weekender last year. And we were determined to come back with an even bigger and bolder line-up for the following event”
This line-up represents a major coup for Bingley Weekender. And the organisers are confident that it’s second annual gathering will be one to remember.
Other names set to perform at Bingley Weekender 2021 includes The Amazons, and Peter Hook and The Light. English post-punk band White Lies are confirmed, as well as the festival funk master himself Craig Charles. Jade Bird, The Wedding Present and more promise to make Bingley Weekender 2021 another popular festival.
