THE fifth edition of Beatyard, the family-friendly, multi-stage festival takes place over two days, on Saturday, August 3 and 4 this year.

The Dún Laoghaire Harbour event features a line up of the hottest international and national acts including Groove Armada on the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

Scandinavian superstar Todd Terje and legendary DJ Grandmaster Flash join headliners Groove Armada live on the Saturday with killer live outfit Jungle and globe-spanning favourite Marc Rebillet taking to the stage on Sunday 4 alongside headliners Chvrches.

Tickets are on sale now from www.the-beatyard.com with Adult Day Tickets priced €59 and Adult 2-Day Weekend Tickets priced €99. Tickets for kids (from age 2 - 15) are just €5. Babies go free. All ticket prices are plus booking fee.

Saturday headliners Groove Armada will take to the Beatyard Main Stage on August 3 for their first full live band show in Ireland in over a decade.

One of the planet's best loved and biggest selling dance acts, Groove Armada's long-awaited return to the live stage is part of their 21st Anniversary celebrations.

Over nearly two decades, Groove Armada have racked up millions of album sales and performed sold out shows worldwide headlining their own tours and festivals including the likes of WHP, Cream, ANTS and Wildlife Ibiza.

With a catalogue of floor filling hits from ‘Superstylin', ‘I See You Baby’, and ‘Get Down’ to ‘If Everybody Looked The Same’, this performance is not to be missed.

Joining headliners Groove Armada on August 3, Todd Terje and Grandmaster Flash are sure to get the party started and keep it going into the night.

Todd Terje arrived on the Scandinavian dance scene in 2004 and, in short order, became one of its most prominent figures.

Terje channels his voracious appetite for several styles of music - including dub, disco, synth pop, house, and techno - into his edits.

He also remixes tracks by the likes of the Bee Gees, Michael Jackson, and Santana and huge club hits such as ‘Inspector Norse’ and ‘Snooze 4 Love’.

Emerging from the South Bronx in the early 1970s, Grandmaster Flash is inarguably one of Hip Hop’s original innovators.

Today, Grandmaster Flash is the voice of an entire generation of 1970s hip hop pioneers and his live show is a celebration of Hip Hop’s most formative decade.

 Chvrches are set to headline the Beatyard Festival on Sunday 4, following rave reactions to their outstanding sold out Irish shows last month.

Their new critically acclaimed album 'Love Is Dead’ is the band’s third successive top 10 UK album and follows their debut 'The Bones of What You Believe' in 2013 and 'Every Open Eye' in 2015.

The Glaswegian act have played countless shows worldwide, with each tour's production reaching new heights and leaping them towards the top of festival bills - their headline spot at Beatyard is a must see.

 Jungle and Marc Rebillet will also take to the Beatyard Main Stage along with headliners Chvrches on Sunday 4.

 In July 2014, Jungle released their self-titled debut album - cue online word-of-mouth and rave reviews, a Mercury Music Prize nomination, songs of the summer, viral videos, half a million sales, burgeoning DJ careers and a global tour that lasted two solid years.

The whole thing was dreamed up by Josh J Lloyd-Watson and Tom T McFarland, a production and multi-instrumentalist duo who never expected to leave their bedroom studios, far less become the core of a talent-filled seven-strong collective.

Known for his incredible live one man shows, it is easy to see why Rebillet achieved huge levels of internet fame.

Having captivated audiences around the world with his musical and lyrical talent, his show is sure to keep you laughing and dancing all night long!

Legendary DJ Grandmaster Flash is on the Saturday.
