UK Festival Guide 2018
13th – 15th July
RIBBLE VALLEY, LANCASHIRE
The barmiest festival in all the land
One of the few remaining independent festivals in the UK, Beat-Herder is a place where different musical tribes congregate as one. Throughout the event’s twelve-year history, they have united the subcultures of dance music and beyond: dub, reggae, house, psytrance, techno, indie, rock, psychedelic, drum & bass and dubstep are all presented across 21 stages.
Originating from roots as a DIY free party on the Northern moors in 2006, the creators of Beat-Herder were inspired to design an intimate party in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire, an area of charming natural beauty and the perfect festival backdrop.
Beat-Herder continues to exist as it did then; uncompromising, unwavering and distinguished by an overwhelming sense of community. Its reputation as one of the friendliest festivals around can be attributed to its loyal followers; a hybrid demographic of friends, couples, families and individuals alike, many of whom have grown with the festival, creating new memories with each passing year.
