Wild Beasts will headline this year's Beacons Festival.

The event, which has also newly confirmed Jessie Ware and Frankie & The Heartstrings this morning (March 19), takes place August 17-19 at Funkirk Estate, Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales. It will also feature sets from Junior Boys, Errors, Factory Floor, 2:54 and a host of others.

Last summer's Beacons Festival was cancelled after authorities inspected the site and said it was "no longer considered to be safe for a public audience". Organisers blamed this on adverse weather conditions in the area.
