Welcome to this week’s playlist. This time around we’re heading to the Beacons festival in Skipton, Yorkshire for inspiration.

Now in its third year proper (after the first event was washed out by torrential rain), Beacons is fast establishing itself as one of the UK’s best small festivals in part due to the great taste of the bookers and the beautiful surroundings of the local landscape.

The line up for the 2014 edition is suitably ace with the likes of Jon Hopkins, Daniel Avery, Fat White Family and Sleaford Mods all making appearances.

If you’re not going this year, get a flavour of the festival by tucking into our Beacons selection below…
