Audiences at Bingley Music Live (BML) are being encouraged to don capes and masks to channel their inner superhero.
The theme of this year’s Bradford Council-run festival, at Bingley’s Myrtle Park on 4-6 September, is superheroes, whether it’s those who appear in comic books and Hollywood blockbusters, or some original creations. Organisers are encouraging people to follow the festival on twitter @BingleyFestival using #pantsovertrousers.
Photographers will be roaming the festival site, looking for the best-dressed or most original ensembles and posting pictures on the BML website. Some of those who were brave enough to ‘suit up’ for last year’s theme of Bingley Robots are already on display.
As well as capes and tights, festival goers are advised to bring some ID. Anyone lucky enough to still have the same fresh-faced good looks they had at school, will be asked to show their ID at the bar.
Security staff will be at the entrance gates carrying out bag and personal possession searches, so to avoid disappointment people are advised to visit www.bingleymusiclive.comin advance to look over the list of ‘what not to bring’ and conditions of entry.
Coun Imran Khan, Executive Member for Environment and Sport, said: “While we want people to have fun at BML, we need to ensure it can be done safely and in a way that does not affect other people’s enjoyment of the event. This is why we have a list of items not to bring and would urge everyone to check the website for details.”
Tickets are selling faster than before and organisers are urging people to get theirs now to avoid disappointment. A limited number of tickets may be available at premium rates from the on site ticket office on the day, subject to availability.
