The first names on the line up for Beat-Herder have confirmed, with Booka Shade, Jimmy Cliff and more due to perform.
Nestled away in a Lancashire valley, Beat-Herder is a curious little event. Lovingly built by hand, it's ornate lay out manages to utilise limited space to an almost ludicrous degree with the festival managing to pack extra stages into every nook and cranny.
Returning for a fresh instalment, the team are already hard at work piecing together the arena. The line up, too, is still being constructed but a few enticing names have already been released. Booka Shade are set to bring their live show to Beat-Herder, with the German titans having honed their concert experience at playgrounds across the globe.
Fusing an itchy, techno derived machine-funk sensibility with the in-yer-face side of electro house, the pair are more than capable of filling The Ribble Valley's natural amphitheatre. Reggae icon Jimmy Cliff is also set to take part, with the Jamaican singer able to draw on a stellar back catalogue. Other names on the line up include Notting Hill Carnival legend Norman Jay, Mr Scruff, Justin Robertson and more. Fusing dance music with indie, the bill also contains appearances from TOY and a host of other guitar clad newcomers.
Tickets are on sale now.
Beat-Herder runs between July 5th – 7th.
