More than 40 more acts are expected to be announced for the festival, including a Saturday night headliner.

Beacons Festival takes place from  17 – 19 August 2012 on the Funkirk Estate, Skipton, in the Yorkshire Dales.

Last year the festival suffered extreme flooding and was closed down by Heath and Safety Executives. The organisers made this statement about their plans for 2012: “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.

Early bird Beacons Festival tickets are available for a limited time priced at £60 for the weekend, including camping (£55 for students).
