With the ever growing number of festivals in the UK it's easy to get lost in a sea of bands you've most likely seen on a previous weekend. Beacons however managed to create a line-up full of diverse acts who chances are, you won't be seeing elsewhere over the Summer in 2013. So with that in mind, I took the trip over to Skipton to see what all the fuss was about. I wasn't disappointed.
As far as straight up awesome festival line-ups go, Beacons Festival has nailed one of the most diverse and ear pleasing rosters I've seen in recent years in 2013. The festival itself is an infant, still finding its feet in the ever growing rough terrain of the small festival wilderness in the UK and in 2011 it had to be cancelled due to the good old UK weather. Last year was a raging success however and this year promises to be bigger and better than that. We'll be heading over to the site in Skipton, Yorkshire, tomorrow morning to take in the gorgeous countryside, and of course some of the top notch line-up while we're there. We may have to try a good sample of the amazing Ales on offer too, but we'll talk about that next week. If you make the jump you can see who we're very eager to see and what we think will make for a very special weekend.
In mid-August, Beacons Festival will take place in Skipton, North Yorkshire. Gracing the stage will be the likes of Local Natives, Savages, Fucked Up, and Gabriel Bruce. Even more top class acts have now also been announced. Joining the line-up will be Danny Brown, SBTRKT (DJ set), Gold Panda, Wire, Eagulls, James Holden, T. Williams, Throwing Snow, New York Brass Band, Sky Larkin, Traams, Findlay. Jump over to the official website to check out the full line-up. If you're still sleeping on grabbing a ticket, don't. You can grab them over here from just £99.50, so what are you waiting for?
In case you missed it, Solange recently pulled out due to family commitments with her Son starting his new school year earlier than anticipated. She promises to be "back in [the] area soon enough to make up for it."
