Latest Festival Flyer update from Beat Herder
The Beat-Herder Festival
For years Beat-Herder has been toughing it out for you in the battle of fun versus bureaucracy. We do out extreme best to shield you, our lovely Herders, from the many rules and regulations imposed on the festival from outside pressures.
I'm sure you've noticed over the year’s changes in the rules with under 18s, more ID checks on the bars and curbs on booze being brought into the arena. These are not BH ideas, but things we must implement to demonstrate our duty of care to everyone on site that allows us to continue throwing the party we want to throw. A huge gap in this duty of care is allowing unlimited alcohol into the campsite and this has been noticed. While we can demonstrate some control over how intoxicated folk who buy booze from our bars become, we haven't been able to stop anyone consuming levels of alcohol in the campsite that may cause serious harm and ultimately jeopardise the event.
So, with a huge amount of hidden tugging and pushing we have only just managed to come up with a compromise between a complete ban on alcohol brought in and the safety of the festival.
Alcohol can ONLY BE BROUGHT IN ON YOUR 1st ENTRY WHEN YOU GET YOUR WRISTBAND, once you have your wristband you cannot bring more into the festival.
You can bring in 1 crate of cans (up to 24 pack) OR 1 box of wine OR 1 bottle of decanted spirits (1L or 1.5L).
Absolutely NO GLASS
You can drink it wherever you like on site, not just in the campsite.
Oh and if you run out, our bars sell the cheapest and best booze on the festival calendar.
And you can even earn free booze by keeping the place tidy.
BH – trying to keep things fun since 2006!
