Beat-Herder, the weirdest, wildest and most wonderful party in the UK festival calendar, has sold out. Taking place in three weeks time from 12th – 14th July, the 2019 edition has sold out in record time, continuing an upward trend for the much-loved Lancashire institution.
This year’s line up reads like a who’s who of household names and rising stars from across the live and electronic spectrum. Headliners Rudimental, Groove Armada, Sister Sledge and Basement Jaxx will be joined by the likes of Hannah Wants, Skream, Sonny Fodera, Chris Lorenzo, Purple Disco Machine, Hot 8 Brass Band and many more.
On selling out, founder Nick Chambers said: “It feels great to be adding another tally on the chart for the sold out Beat Herder years – all of them since the launching 14 years ago! We’re blessed with a loyal family who come back year on year, trusting what we do, knowing this party is for real. We love welcoming first-timers too – what a treat they’re in for.
“To be fully independent in a climate where many festivals in the UK now fall under a small number of umbrella companies is scary and holds major challenges, but selling out again enforces that people truly do love this event and all the amazing work that goes into it from a tiny team of friends, and friends of friends – all the amazing people that we work with to make the magic year after year. HERD EM UP!”
Taking place in the beautiful Ribble Valley, Beat-Herder is a technicolour party and escapist’s utopia, with an array of 20+ whimsical stages, world-class DJs, live acts & comedians, and surprises aplenty.
