Festival Description

HURRAH… summertime is in full swing and the time for festival fun and frolics is well and truly upon us. Without an ounce of branding and sponsorship, Beat Herder is simply about creative festival fun, locally sourced food and booze and the friendliest most up for it crowds this side of the pennines! Described as ‘one of the best events in the north of England’, Beat-Herder is one of the only festivals that manages to remain true to its roots and maintain a unique ‘back to basics’ quality.
