The beloved and bonkers Beat-Herder has announced its return for 2024 with a sublime Thursday line-up. The Lancashire festival takes place from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st of July set against the idyllic backdrop of the picturesque Ribble Valley.

Now in its 17th year, the legendary gathering boasts a truly diverse musical lineup featuring world-class DJs, live acts, and comedians performing across 20 stages.

With the full weekend lineup still to drop, acts revealed for Thursday 18th include Scottish DJ producer Denis Sulta, LF System, and Radio 1’s Future Dance DJ, Sarah Story.

They’ll be joined by house music legends K-Klass, and dynamic Leeds DJ duo PBR Streetgang…

2023 aftermovie:

Over at ‘Trash Manor’, you’ll find jungle and DnB favourite SHY FX feat. Rage. Showcasing their immersive brand of 1994-flavoured jungle, 4AM Kru also join, alongside a driving force behind the North’s underground music culture, Mark XTC.

On the quirky ‘Smoky Tentacles’ stage in the Stone Circle field, you’ll find one of the most skilled and versatile MCs in the country Sparkz, whose live show is packed full of clever lyrics and monster flows on top of big energetic vibes. 

Beyond the music, Beat-Herder festival is renowned for its larger-than-life sculptures and interactive installations, transforming its grounds into a playground of creativity and expression. Attendees are invited to immerse themselves in a kaleidoscope of colours, textures and ideas, where every corner holds a new discovery.

At the heart of Beat-Herder are six school pals who forged the party in the fires of the 90’s free rave scene and who remain committed to keeping it fiercely independent.
