Beat-Herder, the weirdest, wildest and most joyous party in the UK festival calendar announces its first line-up names for 2022, running from 14th - 17th July. The line up includes Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Hot Chip, The Wailers, Public Service Broadcasting, Craig Charles, David Rodigan & more.
After a two-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and with heart-breaking back to back postponements, Beat-Herder is back and bursting with excitement to deliver just what the world needs and what its faithful following deserves: a technicolour escapist party set in the lush Ribble Valley in Lancashire.
Returning to celebrate Beat-Herder’s belated 15th birthday, thousands of eager, devoted revellers have rolled over their tickets, which makes this year extra-special in reuniting the biggest festival family in a much-anticipated comeback, for which only final tier tickets remain.
Described as ‘the best party of the Summer’ (The Mirror), Beat-Herder’s reputation precedes it as a haven of hedonistic joy. The legendary event boasts 20+ whimsical stages, world-class DJs, live acts & comedians, and surprises aplenty. This year is the first time that the festival will run across four days, opening the site on Thursday 14th July for an intimate gathering to those lucky enough to grab the very limited tickets for an extra day of unbridled revelry.
Beat-Herder continues to exist as it did back when it started as a free DIY party in 1998: uncompromising, unwavering and distinguished by an overwhelming sense of community. Its reputation as one of the friendliest festivals around can be attributed to its loyal followers - friends, and families who create new memories to cherish in a bold and barmy atmosphere each summer.
Only final tickets remain - from £174.45.
For Thursday Entry ticket holders, the festival site will be open from 10am on Thursday 14th July. For Friday Entry ticket holders, the festival site will be open from 9.00am on Friday 15th July. Thursday's entertainment will finish around midnight.
