The basics

Described as "like being part of a secret society", it's hard to describe Beat-Herder to someone who hasn't been. Therefore we see only one option; join the awesome Beat-Herder madness and find out for yourself.

The festival

Beat-Herder is the kind of festival that makes us proud to be British. Come rain or shine in Lancashire, people return to the festival year on year because it's bonkers, barmy and brilliant.

It's bonkers because it caters for every kind of party taste without compromising on the party; if you want to rave, you can rave. If you want reggae and roots, you'll not be disappointed. If you want barmy activities and social intercourse, Beat-Herder provides.

In fact, if you want a tattoo souvenir of the festival (because let's face it you NEED a tattoo of your new mate Craig's face on your bum cheek), there's a tattoo shop on site. Anything goes. Herd 'em up!

Our tip

Every year there is a new letter of the alphabet as a theme for fancy dress. If your spelling's not great, may we suggest watching some episodes of Sesame Street for inspiration. You're welcome.
