Earlier this week, a host of new acts were added to the line-up for Beacons 2012, a boutique festival set to grace the picturesque scenery of the Yorkshire Dales this summer. The biggest additions came in the form of low frequency shaman Julio Bashmore, NYC folk rockers The Felice Brothers and Real Estate (who people assure me are an indie band from New Jersey and not merely an abstract concept related to the property market…hmm, we shall see). Further down the bill — although there is certainly no altitudinal degradation of quality — other acts confirmed include Oneman, Cloud Nothings, Koreless, Willis Earl Beal, Andrew Weatherall presents a Love from Outer Space, Jacuzzi Boys, Stopmakingme, Weird Dreams, Bleeding Knees Club, SoulJazz Soundsystem, Luvjam, Tall Ships & Blacklisters. Happy yet? You’d better be. I’m dancing and I’m not even there yet.
