The event takes place August 17-19 at Funkirk Estate, Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales and will also see appearances from Junior Boys, Errors, Willy Mason, 2:54, King Krule, Mazes, Stay+, Bos Angeles and D/R/U/G/S. Over 40 more acts will be announced next month.
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.
Organisers have said: “This year, we have moved the site away from any potential flood areas, still in the fantastic setting of Carleton. The new location is even more picturesque than the previous site and we feel it can only enhance people’s experience of what will be a truly amazing festival.”
