About Beat-Herder


Beat-Herder is one of those festivals that really provides breath of fresh air. Since its inception, Beat-Herder has remained non conformist to big festival norms, and continues to provide a welcome alternative to the big money festivals around the country.

Beat-Herder's growth has kept true to its ideal, but at the same time has managed booking increasingly bigger names and impressive lineups. Previous years headliners have included the likes of Orbital, Death In Vegas, Lee Scratch Perry, Mr Scruff & Mc Kwasi, Goldie, Roni Size, and Jake Bugg.

Hosting over 8 stages of live music and big name DJs, wonderful locally sourced food, as well as a number of creative workshops, this festival caters for everyone, and does all it can to ensure your continued entertainment throughout the weekend.

With no sponsorship and no corporate interference, Beat-Herder can remain as creative as ever, and carry on producing that vital ingredient - fun.

Beat-Herder Festival takes place on Thursday 18th July - Sunday 21st July 2024.

No, it's a music festival!

Having said that, they have a large, well equipped and properly staffed children's area within the festival, as well as plenty to entertain children of all ages across the whole site.

Many people bring children along and have a great time, but please remember that you need to be over 25 if you are bringing anyone under 18 with you (up to a max. of 2 U18s).

Please also remember that adults making the most of a music festival can sometimes be a bit intimidating to the young and uninitiated, especially later in the evening.


It depends on what ticket you have bought...

For Thursday Entry (4 DAY TICKET) ticket holders, the festival site will be open from 10am on Thursday 13th July 2023.

For Friday Entry (3 DAY TICKET)ticket holders, the festival site will be open from 9.00am on Friday 14th July 2023.

You can bring as much alcohol as you like into the camping areas. Alcohol brought from the campsite/live-in vehicle and boutique camping areas into the main arena will be limited to 4 cans or a reasonable equivalent in other vessels.

The festival doesn't restrict the amount of trips you make back and forth with alcohol, but please don't forget, Beat-Herder is self funded and bar sales contribute hugely to the continuation of the event. Alcohol prices are reasonable - no more than in your local pub. Oh, and drinks are served cold, not like your tent-warmed four pack!

Glass is NOT ALLOWED in the main arena.
