The basics

An eclectic lineup, creative outlook and great food make this one of Northern England’s rising festival stars.

The festival

Though still relatively new to the scene, Yorkshire-based Beacons has already established itself as a festival to keep an eye on, with an all encompassing and impeccably tasteful lineup, a creative vibe and sensible pricing.

New and established artists are encouraged to display submit work that’s displayed throughout the grounds, and the acts are pulled from a similarly creative pot – hip hop and EDM sits alongside indie and folk, all of it with a twist of eccentricity. Fancy dress is encouraged, too, on the Friday, with a theme announced near the date of the festival.

The 2014 lineup included Mark E Smith’s post-punk eccentrics The Fall, along with indie stalwarts British Sea Power, food-fixated rapper Action Bronson and Joan As Police Woman.

The food’s worth checking out, too.

Our tip

The Things To Make & Do tent is running a letterpress workshop in association with the Print Project, where you can print your own Beacons festival poster.
