Beat Herder ’17

· The Beat-Herder Festival

Sick of herding cattle? I mean, it’s not what we do, but we assume if it’s what you do, you’ll need a break. Ditch them for beats — we’re sure herding those is less stressful. From 14-16 July, join us at Lancashire’s Ribble Valley for a succession of unbelievable artists.

The Music

We’ve got, in no particular order, the beyond-excellent Sleaford Mods, Trentemoller, and Toots & the Maytals. Milky Chance is making an appearance (Stolen Dance, anyone? Our forever favourite), as well as Faithless, Skream, and Richy Ahmed. And loads more, of course. Here are a few more names to tide you over: Endor, High Contrast, Stereo MC’s, Adam Sherwood ...

So Fancy

If you’re into fancy dress, you’ll have fun on Saturday. This year’s theme is the letter D (get your mind out of the gutter!). Beat Herder suggests dinosaurs, ducks, dice and dominoes. We’re already assembling our getups!
