Beat-Herder Announces Final Acts for 2019, Including Sunday Night Headliner

BeatHerder, the weirdest, wildest and most wonderful party in the North West, has announced its final line-up additions for 2019, including Sunday night headliner, Sister Sledge.

Taking place from 12 – 14 July, the festival will once again transform Lancashire’s Ribble Valley into a technicolour party and escapist’s utopia, with 20+ whimsical stages, world-class DJs, live performers, and surprises aplenty.

Joining this year’s previously announced headliners Rudimental, Groove Armada and Basement Jaxx (DJ set) will be none other than the legendary Sister Sledge. Forming in Philadelphia in the early 70s, the siblings became a household name after working with Chic towards the end of the decade.

With seminal anthems like Thinking Of You, We Are Family and He’s The Greatest Dancer, the disco icons are certain to set the BeatHerder main stage alight as they round off proceedings on the Sunday night.

Other additions include Red Snapper, Galaxians, James Holroyd, Peza, Grinny Grandad, Father FunkAdored, Definitely Mightbe and The Moods.

Despite its ever-impressive line-up of DJs and live artists, music is just part of the experience at BeatHerder; the festival offers a whole host of other entertainment, including a side-splitting comedy line-up featuring Angelos Epithemiou, Paul Smith, Rachel Fairburn, David Stanier, Jamie Hutchinson, Rob Mulholland, Sam Gore and Danny Sutcliffe.

BeatHerder continues to exist as it did back when it started as a free DIY party in 1998: uncompromising, unwavering and distinguished by an overwhelming sense of community. Its reputation as one of the friendliest festivals around can be attributed to its loyal followers – friends, couples and families who create new memories to cherish in a bold and barmy atmosphere each summer.

After selling out in record time last year, Beat-Herder is on course for another full house this summer. Tickets are currently up for grabs at just £165 (+ booking fee).
