Rough Beats Festival is a small independent music festival in the stunning Yorkshire dales and its line-up this year includes Azealia Banks, Django Django, Pulled Apart by Horses, Gruff Ryths, Francois and the Atlas Mountains, Mahala Rai Banda and many more. Rough Beats Festival started as a party and has grown by word of mouth from just 100 guests in 2003, to 1500 in 2011 and 3000 in 2012. The event runs from 1pm Friday 8th June until 11pm Sunday 10th June and this year’s event looks set to be the best one yet.
Weekend tickets are £65 and include camping, day tickets are £30 and include camping until 10am the next morning. Organisers expect the event to sell out, so make sure to check their website for latest info. Speaking about this year’s event, Michael McSherry, Festival Director, said: "We’re incredibly excited about this line-up, we’ve come a long way since we started out in 2003 to this very credible international programme which stands up along side any other in the UK this summer. We’re also delighted to welcome back PABH who played as an unknown local act just four years ago and return as bonafide headliners following rave reviews for their sell-out live shows and new album.”
