Last year Beacons Festival was forced to close at the last second due to extreme flooding, but thankfully they've moved the festival to the Funkirk Estate in Carleton, which will prove a more stable environment for everyone involved.

That's not the only good news from the Beacons camp today, as they've gone and announced the first wave of artists to play the festival (August 17-19).

Roots Manuva, Junior Boys, Ghostpoet, Errors, Factory Floor, Pearson Sound, Cass McCombs, Willy Mason, D/R/U/G/S, Peaking Lights, XXXY, Star Slinger, Submotion Orchestra, Bok Bok, 2:54, Jam City, King Krule, Mazes, Still Corners, Stay +, Gross Magic, Bos Angeles, Grass House

Pretty strong, right?
