As seen at Web Summit 2016!
We recently took a trip to Lisbon to exhibit at Web Summit; Europe’s largest technology conference and marketplace taking place in Lisbon.
Beat-Herder, the weirdest, wildest and most wonderful party in the UK festival calendar, announces final names for 2018. Running from 13th – 15th July, Beat-Herder will once again transform Lancashire’s Ribble Valley into a technicolour party and escapist’s utopia, with an array of 20+ whimsical stages, world-class DJs and surprises aplenty.
Joining the likes of Orbital, Soulwax, Django Django, High Contrast Live, David Rodigan (MBE), Congo Natty and The Rezistance Live, Patrick Topping and Pete Tong for this year’s event will be one of Norway’s finest exports, Lindstrøm. The acclaimed space-disco wizard will be taking to the main stage on Saturday.
Headlining the Trash Manor, Beat-Herder’s eccentric courtyard of chaos, on Friday night will be the UK’s finest disco operators Horse Meat Disco while over in The Factory, Bugged Out / Back To Basics resident and long-time Chemical Brothers associate James Holroyd will play alongside Happy Mondays legend Bez and K-Klass, the electronic duo who emerged in the late 80s and went on to become an omnipresent remixing team on the British house scene throughout the 90s, earning them a Grammy nomination in 2002.
Also announced today is Beat-Herder’s comedy line up, which this year features talents such as Mock The Week regular Gary Delaney; Bobby Mair, one of Canada’s hottest exports and rising stars (and Justin Bieber’s third cousin, no less); Seymour Mace who is described as ‘a truly bizarre hybrid of Harry Hill, Half Man Half Biscuit and Viz comic’; baby-faced Mancunion Jay Hampson and more.
Music and comedy are just part of the experience at Beat-Herder. Entirely handmade from scratch, the stages stand out as something truly different in the increasingly identikit festival landscape. That attention to detail creates an immersive world full of beguiling and intriguing creative concepts. Which other festivals give you the opportunity to explore underground tunnels, dance to drum and bass in a chapel or get inked in the functioning tattoo parlour? And if the hedonism gets a little too much, guests can slow the pace by lounging in the heated hidden swimming pool or enjoy some retro entertainment at the site’s very own working men’s club.
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, couples and families who create new memories to cherish in a bold and barmy atmosphere each summer.
Tier 4 tickets are now available for £150.00 plus booking fee are also available. The Beat-Herder Bombassador programme is also open, allowing loyal fans the chance to get free tickets and money-can’t-buy experiences.

One of dance music’s biggest DJ/Producers Marshmello returns to the UK in October for a series of shows with the northern leg of the tour landing at Manchester’s Albert Hall on Friday 20th October.
Having garnered a global fan base as a producer through collaborations with the likes of Diplo, Skrillex and Avicii to name a few, it was a natural progression to venture solo and he hasn’t stood still since. As one of the new breed of superstar DJ’s, its testament to his ability to merge genres from blood pumping bass, hip hop, trap and pop laden grooves into his trademark hyper frenetic performances that gets the crowd moving that ultimately appeals to the masses.
Armed with his iconic white Marshmello helmet, the masked DJ/Producer lets the music speak for itself and in a short space of time has dominated both the charts and DJ circuit. With a series of high profile performances at some of the world’s most revered festivals including the likes of Creamfields, Tomorrowland and EDC Vegas, another album in the pipeline and what is set to be another sell out UK tour, there is no slowdown in sight for Marshmello.

The country was shook by the bombings at The Manchester Arena on May 22nd, prompting a huge ‘One Love Manchester’ event.
£18 million has been raised to help the victims of the Manchester terror attack which caused 23 fatalities during an explosion following an Ariana Grande concert.
The 24-year-old popstar helped to organise the fundraising gig at Emirates Old Trafford on June 4th which featured the likes of Katy Perry, Liam Gallagher, Coldplay and Justin Bieber.
In a statement, Councillor Sue Murphy said: “The city and the world responded with such extreme kindness, generosity and solidarity in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack.
“Thanks to this we have raised more than £18 million and we were conscious that we had to get some of swiftly this to those with immediate needs.
“We have therefore given around a third of the total to the bereaved families and £3.5 million to those who were hospitalised after the attack.”
Councillor Murphy revealed that “over half” of the funds raised by the gig have already been allocated, with each family estimated to have received £250,000.
But of how the remaining money will be awarded, Councillor Murphy explained: “This will be a complex and sensitive process as we will need to assess the long-term impacts of the attack.
“We will issue an update as soon as we know more.”
