With everything on-site handmade in the amazing Beatherder workshop to the finest detail from an individual flower planted for each artist who has ever played to the bizarre vibrating benches the fully decked out Working Men's Club and Grandad's Room hidden in the trees, Beatherder is non-stop hedonistic festival fun stripped down to it's roots.
