Oh Beacons, last Summer you found a special place in my heart, remember? One of my favourite weekends of 2012 it certainly was and what better way to get over the January blues than the fabulous first line-up announcement that these guys just dropped this morning?! Running from 16th-18th August this year with Mercury-nominated Django Django showcasing their psychedelic pop for a suiting Sunday night headline slot, other names added to the bill include reggae legend David Rodigan OBE, the folk-turned-haunting-grunge of London's Wolf Alice, Birmingham's boys Jaws, Local Yorkshire natives Hookworms AND some of the UK's best electronic producers of the moment such as Bondax, Eats Everything and the master that is Ben UFO. Also coming along for the ride will be tents sponsored by the likes of Noisey and Resident Advisor. Are these guys for real?! Only a portion of the acts have been announced so far with two headliners still to be revealed and I'm getting nostalgically excited already; I SALUTE YOU BEACONS TEAM, bring on the mud!
