Festival Information

The Beat Herder Festival 2012 Overview

Billed as “Three Days Of Beats And Barminess”, the Beat-Herder festival once again takes place in the beautiful rural Ribble Valley in Lancashire. The organisers backgrounds originate from the northern underground party scene – so these guys know how to give you a good time.  The festival shuns corporate sponsorship and funding and provides a heady mix of music and DJ sessions over three days.

Artists booked to appear include Death In Vegas, Orbital, Lee Scratch Perry, and Mr Scruff

Ticket prices (from): The event is now SOLD OUT!

The Beat Herder Festival 2012 Event Info

Whilst ticket pricing includes camping (Fri-Sun), there is no camping allowed on Thursday night. Caravans and Camper Vans are also welcome. The festival makes a small charge for parking.

The main stage shuts at around midnight with the other areas winding down between 3 and 4 in the morning. On Sunday night all areas wind down around midnight.

Regarding Alcohol, you may bring as much as you wish. The only rule is that glass vessels are not allowed within the main site (but they are allowed in the camping areas)

Year on year the festival makes considerable improvements to site access for all. They have full disabled facilities in the campsite and the main arena. Anyone with specific needs should email ‘contact@beatherder.co.uk’ and they will, of course, be happy to deal with you individually.

The Beat Herder Festival 2012 Food and Drink

There will be a wide selection of food stalls available. As far as beer goes they will have a range of cans (cold), real ales in the working men’s club, an underground vodka bar and a cocktail bar so most angles should be covered. All the prices will be reasonable as they hate to be ripped off as much as Joe Public… so no worries there!!
