Beacons Festival, Yorkshire
17th – 19th August 2012
Funkirk Estate, Skipton
With a lineup like this, it’s surprising that they need to tell us about the real ale. But we’re glad they did.

The impressive line-up of music at Beacons will be joined by an equally innovative range of attractions. Guerilla theatrics, superior cuisine, real ale, leftfield party spaces and roaming performance: this festival presents a spectrum of encounters well beyond the musical. With numerous participating visual and performance artists, activists, poets and prophets, festivalgoers can expect an immersive, 3-day adventure.
From a pop-up fancy dress boutique to an experimental sound garden and bespoke kids area, on site there will be gourmet treats and unexpected oddities to satisfy all ages. And this wouldn’t be complete without a contribution from the crowd: the fancy dress theme for this year is ‘All the Fun of the Fair’.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. – Aristotle
