Ribble Valley music festival – Beat-Herder – has sold out of all 12,000 tickets with two weeks to go.
Selling out in advance has become something of a given for the festival, which celebrates its landmark 10th anniversary this year. This will be the ninth year in a row that all tickets have gone in advance.
In other exciting news, legendary British electronic-duo Leftfield have been announced as Sunday night headliners. They will be closing the festival on Beat-Herder’s main stage and replace Sugarhill Gang, who have sadly had to postpone due to health issues.
From humble free party origins to an annual three-day 12,000 capacity bonanza with a legion of devout fans, Beat-Herder is a rare find in today’s climate: a staunchly independent festival that stays true to its roots, completely shunning all corporate sponsorship or branding.
“We’re over the moon about having yet another sell out event; our ninth in a row! We’re looking forward to an amazing and very special 10th birthday with some surprises in store, and which is looking set for, dare I say it, great weather too,” said Nick Chambers, Beat-Herder Festival founder.
