Taking place over the weekend of 8th-10th June in the picturesque surroundings of Clapham, North Yorkshire, Rough Beats is a grass roots festival with a quirky, independent spirit that attracts a diverse and eclectic line-up of quality acts.

This year's line-up is already looking strong, with a selection of established acts and exciting up and comers set to perform across the festival's two main stages and range of quirky smaller venues.

New York lyricist and BBC Sound of 2012 nominee Azealia Banks, Leeds rockers Pulled Apart By Horses, SFA frontman Gruff Rhys and East London art pop fourpiece Django Django spearhead the eclectic main stage line-up.

Cock n Bull Kid, Underground Railroad, Mahala Rai Banda (Romania), KCC Orchestra (France) and Black Cherry also feature, with more acts yet to be announced.

With a idyllic main stage arena, a second stage in the Aurora tent, a 'Lock Up' area built from shipping containers and housing a Speak Easy and live line up, the Flying Horseshoe Pub, Rum Shackle cocktail bar, Berber tent, Lazer Cave a 5 D cinema, plenty of food and drink and the Clapham-on-Sea market place, there's plenty to keep festival goers intrigued and entertained.

New for this year is the Docklands area - featuring live music venues, DJs, comedy, theatre, puppetry, chill out areas and art installations.

Tickets for Rough Beats Festival 2012 are £30 a day or £65 for the whole weekend, and are available through Skiddle now.
