There are no other acts confirmed, and a second line up announcement is due on 19th March.

This year's event moves to the Funkirk Estate, Carleton (three miles out of Skipton) after serious flooding forced organisers to cancel the event last year at the 11th hour.

Organisers explained, "Last year, due to extreme flooding, Health and Safety Executives made the decision to cancel Beacons Festival. We were devastated to have to cancel your party but were left with no choice. 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 tickets are priced at £60 for the weekend or £55 for students. To buy tickets, click here.
