The weird, wild and wonderful Beat-Herder Festival is set to transform Lancashire’s Ribble Valley into an escapist’s utopia this July, with an array of 20+ whimsical stages, world-class DJs and surprises aplenty.
Originating from free party roots, Beat-Herder has been uniting the disparate subcultures of dance music for more than a decade, and this year’s line-up proves no exception.
Headlining the main stage this year are dance legends Orbital, who’ll be dazzling crowds with their stunning light shows and leftfield dance anthems.
They’ll be joined by dance-rock crossover pioneers Soulwax; the consistently unpredictable sonic adventurers Django Django; and national treasure and firm festival favourite David Rodigan.
One of the original pioneers of jungle, Rebel MC aka Congo Natty will play with The Rezistance live alongside Hollie Cook, former member of all-female punk/reggae band The Slits, and electronic afro-funk stalwarts, Ibibio Sound Machine.
Confirmed for the Toil Trees stage – a majestic woodland setting and the beating heart of Beat-Herder – Patrick Topping will be bringing a mix of killer originals and alongside Glaswegian upstart Denis Sulta.
Joining them will be BBC Radio 1 dance music authority, Monki; perennial party-starter Artwork; First Lady of Defected, Sam Divine, and Feel My Bicep cohort, Hammer.
