Beat-Herder is an annual summer music festival held at Dockber Farm near Sawley, Lancashire which has been running since 2006. The festival covers several musical genres including breakbeat, dub, reggae, dubstep, techno, house, drum & bass, folk, dance-punk and psychedelic rock. The event also sees regular appearances from novelty musicians such as the Lancashire Hotpots and William Fairey Acid Brass. In 2006 when it started it was nothing but a small rave in the trees organised by a small group of friends but since then it has grown massively attracting a wide range of audiences with its large variety of acts.[1] [2]

Acts appearing at the 2013 event included Chic (featuring Nile Rodgers), Jimmy Cliff and Bentley Rhythm Ace.

The 2014 event had The Happy Mondays headlining on the Sunday night of the festival.
