Legendary Boston indie-rock band Pixies have today been confirmed as headliners for Yorkshire’s newest festival, Bingley Weekender 2021.
They will round off a weekend of excellent music in the Yorkshire town, which already includes performances by Embrace, Primal Scream and The Libertines, among others.
The event will take place over the weekend on August 6-8, 2021, with Pixies closing proceeedings on the Sunday night.
Steve Davis of organisers SSD Concerts 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.”
Friday August 6 features legendary Leeds indie outfit Embrace with co-headliners Primal Scream. Saturday night will be headlined by The Libertines and the Pixies round off Sunday.
The line-up represents a major coup for Bingley Weekender and the event is determined to make its second annual gathering an event to be remembered.
Other bands set to perform include The Amazons – one of the UK’s largest indie-rock breakthrough acts of the last few years, Peter Hook and The Light – playing tracks from Hook’s iconic previous bands Joy Division and New Order, London post-punk band White Lies, as well as the festival vibe master himself Craig Charles, with his much-loved Funk & Soul Show.
