One of the UK's better festivals - Beat-Herder Festival, which is held in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire from Friday 13th until Sunday 15th July 2018 - has just got even better.
Along with telling their suppliers and traders that there can be no plastic straws and condiment sachets, plastic cutlery and plastic / polystyrene food trays, they've just added water to the list and said that can only be sold in cans.
Festival co-founder Nick Chambers says: "Clearing the site after the festival always brings home how much plastic we all waste. But seeing Sir David Attenborough's Plastic Ocean nailed the coffin shut, enough is enough!"
Beat-Herder's line-up this year includes Orbital, Soulwax, Django Django, High Contrast Live, David Rodigan, Congo Natty and the Rezistance, Dreadzone, Mr Scruff, Morcheeba, Camelphat, Boney M, Hookworms, Ibibio Sound Machine, Pins, S Club 3, Black Lace, Greg Wilson, Sam Divine, Denis Sulta, and many more. To see the full list of announced acts including day and stage splits where available please view the line-up page.
