Way back in 2006, the first Beat-Herder was hot. Hot like hotknives. The land was baked like a biscuit and 1200 people came, enjoyed and partied really hard. There were fewer areas back then. Toil Trees was the epicentre of the throng. We had a tiny stage in the main field; there was Trailer Trash, there was Colin (Still the best Reggae tent of the Northern hemisphere), a witch tent, a naked sauna and couple of hippy food stalls. Since then...a colossal creation of some 16 additional areas for music, 14 bars, 40 + stalls, fairgrounds... the list goes on. Mother Beat-Herder has been busy.
