Beacons Festival 2013 Announce First Acts

Beacons is back! The cutting-edge music and arts festival will once again be taking place in the picturesque setting of the Funkirk Estate in Skipton this August. We are pleased to announce the first 25 acts that will be performing this summer. A Further 50 will be revealed in the coming months. The mercury music nominated Django Django lead the way as one of many highlights. Full list below.

Beacons Festival is set in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside; an affordable festival brought to you by a collective of tastemakers who, for years, have been bringing the best music to reputable Northern venues such as Leeds' Nation of Shopkeepers and Brudenell Social Club, Sheffield's Bungalows and Bears, Club Pony and the Shipping Forecast. We've also got the organisers of London-based festivals and events like Underage and Field Day and the Shacklewell Arms venue on board. This year, the main stage acts are once again presented in association with The Stool Pigeon magazine.  Following the jam-packed stage by Vice / Noisey last year, Beacons welcomes them back once again.

Complementing the Stool Pigeon stage, Resident Advisor will be hosting the main dance stage with a forward thinking and unique lineup including the likes of Theo Parrish and Machine Drum The people behind Manchester's coolest band nights, Now Wave are on board, as are Leeds' Flux and London's Eat Your Own Ears. Beacons will be bringing together the cream of the cities finest club nights and gig venues for one weekend in Yorkshire.

Beacons is a three-day, four-night festival and for a short period, tickets are available at a reduced early bird rate of £74.50, rising to £99.50 once the allocation is out.

Beacons represents a side-step from the usual treadmill of festival bands and burger vans. This year Northern StrEats will be providing the food. As we announce more artists over the coming weeks and months, we will also be revealing our exclusive cinema programme. In addition to this, there will be children's entertainment from the Ladybird Project, spoken word, theatre and dance.
