The first 50 acts for next year's sophomore edition of the festival have been announced.

Beyond the Pale is quickly becoming one of Ireland's coolest music festivals, and the eclectic line-up for next year's second edition has been revealed. Here's who will be headlining alongside synthpop legends Hot Chip.

There will be Grammy-winning funkster Thundercat, plus electronic pioneers Jon Hopkins and Leftfield, who will be playing their first Irish show in over five years. Swedish electro-pop stars Little Dragon are also on the bill.

The three-day camping festival will also host American soul legend Candi Staton ("young hearts, run free"), who will be performing her last ever European tour, as well as top-drawer Irish performers such as Pillow Queens, Le Boom, Saint Sister, For Those I Love, Tolü Makay and Mano Le Tough.

The Weeknd's producer (yes, the artist) Oneohtrix Point Never will present world-class audiovisual shows, alongside a Jungle DJ set, Flight Facilities, Max Cooper, Baynk, Christian Löffler, Daithí, Jockstrap, Just Mustard, Roy Orbison and loads more. 

Other alternative experiences include a yoga rave with East Forest, classical musicians Alma Quartet, and performances from Scottish legend Irvine Walsh, the author of 'Trainspotting'.
