Our weekend at Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 is becoming something of a tradition now. We go every year with the same group of people and always have a fab time. For us it is the last festival of the year, just before school goes back and signifies the end of summer.
Bingley Music Live Festival takes place over three days and is always the weekend after August bank holiday. It is set in Myrtle Park, Bingley in Yorkshire. As the years go on it is quickly growing and now has huge acts appearing on the line up.
Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 Day One
Day one of Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 is a Friday. The park opens at 3pm so you can have a nice leisurely morning getting ready. Or you can even work in the morning and just use half a days holiday. Luckily the sun is shining and it is lovely and warm. No wellies and raincoats for us this festival!

Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 Day Two
Day two of Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 starts at 12 so we are up and out much earlier on our way for another day of festival life. The weather is amazing, cloudless skies and gloriously sunny. Perfect for sunbathing in between sets.

Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 Day Three
Sunday is the last day of Bingley Music Live Festival, and is usually their fancy dress day. We don’t usually take part but there are always a good handful of people who do. Again it’s another lovely day weather-wise, you couldn’t ask for better festival weather.

Bingley Music Live Festival 2018 Final Thoughts
As always we had an amazing three days at Bingley Music Live Festival 2018. The weather was amazing and the company made the weekend for us.
The line-up this year, for me, is a bit hit and miss. There are some amazing headliners, but most of the other bands just aren’t for me. I would love to keep the big headliners and have a variety of bands and genres through the daytime slots.
Rules at Bingley were changed this year, just a few weeks before the festival. Usually you are able to take in picnics and soft drinks. This year you are only able to bring sealed, pre-packaged food and one 500ml drink. We always take a picnic lunch and buy dinner from a food truck. I am generally happy with the changes and understand the reasons behind it. But, they really do need to look at the food trucks for next years festival. They are all very expensive, with not a lot of choice between them. This year there is just one stall catering for vegetarians (I’m not sure if it is vegan friendly or not), nothing for allergies and intolerances like gluten free, and no choice at all if you don’t want greasy, fried food. Hopefully next year they will have the great choices they usually do.
Despite my grumbles about the food choices we will definitely be back next year. Fingers crossed the sunshine comes along too!
