After nearly a year of waiting, the time has almost come for 10,000 revellers to head down those windy country roads and embark on a weekend of madness with friends and family alike.
For those who haven’t heard of it, Beat-Herder is a three day festival that takes place from the 14th-16th July. If you’re looking for a beautiful setting and a varied mash up of musical loveliness to get your festival jollies on to this year then the idyllic setting of Dockber Farm is the place for you. Curious? Well check out this video recorded during last year’s event….
Each year the fancy dress theme changes to a different letter from ‘Beat-Herder’ and this year is the letter ‘D’ so get those thinking caps on. We can be sure to see many Darth Vader’s and Dumbledore’s causing some havoc in the Toil Trees!
Confirmed this year on the consistently eclectic Beat-Herder main stage schedule is American powerhouse Kelis, Crystal Fighters, Sleaford Mods, Toots and the Maytals, Trentmoller, The Sugarhill Gang Ft Melle Mel & Scorpio and fan favourites Dub Pistols. The Noise Gate always loves to see fellow Mancunians on the line-up and again this year we’re excited to see the return of tech house and acid techno duo, Solardo, who absolutely rocked The Fortress last year with a spine-tingling performance you can get a snippet of below
Over the rest of the 15 stages such as the Fortress, Stumble Funk and Trash Manor we have Altern8, Plump DJ’s, Darren Emerson, David Rodigan, Jackmaster, Lee Scratch Perry, Faithless DJ Set, Stereo Mc, Artwork, Max Cooper, Sonny Fodera, Global Underground Sound System,Drum Machine, Captain Hotknives and Mr Scruff to name a few – the full line-up can be found here.
So much more to offer than just a music festival, the Beat-Herder magic is guaranteed to leave its mark on festival goers of all persuasions! HERD EM UP!
