— Beat-Herder Festival (@Beatherder) February 9, 2017
As a festival, Beat-Herder has – over the course of 12 successful years – prided itself on “uniting the sub-cultures” of dub, reggae, house, psytrance, techno, indie, rock, psychedelic, drum and bass and dubstep, and the 2017 installment of the festival can boast some luminaries from these scenes, including dub hero Lee “Scratch” Perry, feted DJs Dave Rodigan and High Contrast, progressive ska and rocksteady legends Toots And The Maytals, hugely influential hip-hop group The Sugarhill Gang and German alternative-folk outfit Milky Chance.
Check out the highlights of last year’s “unparalleled, unorthodox and unflinchingly bonkers” Beat-Herder festival below:
