Beat-Herder Festival

Beat-Herder Festival is an annual celebration of beats and barminess. Creating unforgettable memories since 2006, the three-day event welcomes thousands of visitors each summer and showcases everything from dubstep to reggae, punk, house and more.

The festival organisers say:

Beat-Herder is different to other festivals; it is built on unconditional love and the tireless efforts of many. From plants grown from seed, hand painted signs and flags, restoring old cars, to homemade hymn books; the detail and creativity is endless. Most of the stuff you will see here is unique to Beat-Herder. Like most things at Beat-Herder, ideas begin with a crude sketch on a fag packet. We then get out a roll of brown wrapping paper, tape to a table and begin scrawling random ideas, words and pictures. We did this 10 years ago whilst conjuring up the name for the festival and, after hours of scrawl, we all knew when Beat-Herder was written that it was the right name.
