The Beat-Herder Festival, Lancashire’s highly anticipated festival with its unique formula of live music, locally sourced food & drink and an unpretentious Northern ethos is now completely SOLD OUT. Based on the simple desire to ‘bring good people together to have a good time in beautiful surroundings’, Beat-Herder is one of the few festivals on the circuit that eschews sponsorship, corporate branding and egos in favour of independent and local stall owners and a refreshingly hand-crafted site, creating a utopia from the outside world for 3 days each summer.
In addition to the high calibre music on offer at Beat-Herder there is a whole host of activities and events taking place across the weekend for all the family. Amongst the hordes of theatrical performers and workshops is the exciting Ladybird Project. This is the main children’s workshop and entertainment spot where 25 performers programme a whole weekend of fun for all the family featuring everything from circus skills to dramatics.
The graffiti tent, aptly named Best Joined Up, is run by a group of 20 creatives who every year, paint all over the festival along with hosting their own tent where punters can get stuck in with a spray can. Making their third appearance at Beat-Herder will be the Red Hot Frilly Knickers, who are a group of eight ladies and one guy in fancy dress who perform the Can-Can all over the festival site.
Creating sculptures out of anything and everything including aeroplane parts and bits of machinery will be Wrekon. Previously only featured at Glastonbury and Fuji Rocks, Beat-Herder is very proud to be added to their exclusive roster. Scrap parts and bits of machinery result in 30ft lizard, monkeys and futuristic robots which create a Mad Max vibe across the Ribble Valley.
There is also plethora of comedy talent heading to Lancashire including opening act Katie Mulgrew who has been described by comedy website Chortle as “so entertaining”. She will be joined by master of ceremonies Phil Ellis and headline acts Alex Boardman, Joe Lycett and The Brilliant Mick Ferry. Beat-Herder will also be supporting up and coming talent with performances from Danny Sutcliffe, Ruth Cockburn, Rich Wall, Adam Staunton and Jay Hampson.
