The Beatyard is back and the music, media and culture happening is bigger and broader than before. The eighth outing for the festival will feture contributions from the Choice Cuts, Harmonic, uMack, Note and Irish Moss crews alongside the Bodytonic team to put on a huge rake of gigs, club nights, exhibitions, installations, art, talks and workshops in 11 venues across the city from October 19 to 28.

The full day-by-day and venue-by-venue breakdown will be on the festival’s website later today (they’ll be also giving away 10 festival passes to mark the launch), but here’s the list of artists who will be in Beatyard mode next month for now:
