Beat-Herder Festival


This event has been and gone...

Originating from free party roots, over its fourteenth-year history, Beat-Herder has become known as one of the last-remaining, independent bastions of electronic music, featuring drum & bass, psytrance, techno, and house music. Renowned for uniting disparate subcultures, this year’s line-up reads as a celebration of electronic music in its many forms.
