The family-friendly Beacons Festival returns to the Skipton, in the Yorkshore Dales, makign for a breathtakingly beautifulsetting. As before, there are plenty of buzzy bands with an indie tint to them, and a few more electronically minded acts to provide some beats. The obligatory 'legend' spot is taken by angry Manchester post-punkers The Fall. Alongside the impressive musical programme, punters can also enjoy ilm screenings, art installations, comedy and spoken word, workshops and a vintage fair for those of you that can't stand being out of east London for too long.
