James have been announced as the Friday main stage headliners of Beat-Herder, replacing former headliners Primal Scream, who had to cancel their appearance due to Bobby Gillespie’s recent injury.
Due to take place Friday 15th – Sunday 17th July 2016 the festival is a friendly, barmy, hedonistic oasis hidden amidst the relative calm of the Ribble Valley, Lancashire moors.
Fresh from a new album and arena tour and known for their string of hit anthemic singles including ‘Sit Down’, ‘Come Home’, ‘She’s a Star’ and ‘Laid’, iconic English rockers JAMES will bring their own brand of wonderful britpop to the Beat-Herder main stage on 15th July.
The entire site is made from scratch, by hand, including the tunnels in the woods leading to secret raves (look out for a red telephone box…) and a chapel, complete with Sunday Service. With so many secrets round every corner, including a secluded on-site swimming pool nestled in the heart of the woods, it’s no wonder the festival is such a special and magical experience for those lucky enough to attend
Beat-Herder houses a Working Men’s Club, comedy stage, a tattoo parlour, yoga classes, workshops including knitting and woodturning, mass-participation games, pop-up performances, a fun-fair and many more surprises round every corner, giving the punter an entirely holistic experience.
The line-up across fifteen contrasting stages includes Chronixx & Zinc Fence Redemption, Donovan, Clean Cut Kid, Doorly, Dub Pistols, Easy Star All Stars, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Todd Terje, Beardyman’s Dream Team, A Guy Called Gerald, Miike Snow, Digitalism, The Amazons, Yonaka, Fronteers, Tom Walker, Rationale, Beans on Toast, Meadowlark, Grinny Grandad, Jamie Berry, A Skillz, and more.
