Joining previously announced headliners Rudimental, Groove Armada and Basement Jaxx DJ Set will be international crowd pleasers Hot 8 Brass Band.

The New Orleans based band will be serving up some seriously funk-laden sounds alongside DJ, journalist, national underground music treasure and walking encyclopedia Bill Brewster; UK DJ/producer duo and prolific remixers Psychemagik and fabric mainstay and all-round house music legend Terry Farley.

As ever, Beat-Herder will continue to join the dots between a multitude of genres across the electronic music spectrum. DJ Q will bring a lively concoction of bassline, garage and grime to the Toil Trees stage alongside expert digger in bass, house and techno, Huxley.

Over at The Fortress, a monstrous construction of corrugated iron and the refuge of Beat-Herder’s most hardcore revellers, breakbeat deities Stanton Warriors will perform alongside DJ, producer and promoter of Ireland’s fast rising eponymous club night, Rebüke (Defected/Toolroom); Mancunion D&B producer Mark XTC; acclaimed collectiveFooR; underground D&B and jungle heads Selecta J-Man and Kelvin 373.

Beat-Herder continues to exist as it did back when it started as a free DIY party in 1998:uncompromising, unwavering and distinguished by an overwhelming sense of community.

Its reputation as one of the friendliest festivals around can be attributed to its loyal followers - friends, couples and families who create new memories to cherish in a bold and barmy atmosphere each summer.
