One thought on “Beatherder Festival - You Muddy Pup - Part 1”

  • Adam Bee

    As one of the four who made the convoy and parked up at the roadside lay by on the previous night of the festival,with the festival grounds in view a stones throw away ready to embark in the morning into the festival grounds, yes the morning of the opening a very welcoming drive in through a muddy but manageable lane with v friendly ushers and entertaining signs along the lane route, was following the convoy of the other two vans in front and the fourth van of the apocalypse in toe we quickly got sited ready to set up camp for the weekend, as mentioned as the last peg of our little pod of a site within a site had been planted the heavens opened with mega rain sheltering the luckily semi dried out piece of 10m2 turf communal area in the middle of all the now settled parked camper vans, oh apart from mine, I needed to move my camper van by a foot so I could open my doors properly, with mild rejection from the other already settled fellow camper van brethren,
    once settled the following day was spent adjusting to living in a field with the nearby thumping of the Beatherder festival, as the rest of the crew went out to venture I stayed behind and awaited their return by that time I was ready to go to the most amazing life changing best weekend I have ever had, really ! , I not felt a vibe like the Beatherder festival since the early 90s, The rest was history in the making, oh yes !
    more of this thing please !
    Ok i've seen film footage of early festivals from the 60s and 70s and my own experience of great clubs and outdoor events this one was most certainly the cherry on the top of the cake,
    as a keen photographer, videographer and audiographer, dj and vj I couldnt put away my recording devices, I am still trawling through all the media I recorded and working on getting the essence of this thing together whilst its still fresh in my head,
    I think we all need to do this kind of thing at least once a year, its great for the soul and a great adventure, it makes you feel alive and makes you appreciate and love living life.
    what a weekend ! was great to share it with so many like minded people, so many characters myself included and not a dull moment,
    Well done to all who make these things happen in beautiful surroundings where the weather held off enough for everyone to enjoy and experience what I experienced, as soon as I can deliver my experience of this event through all my available resources I will gladly share them with you, Ive just put together Beatherder Barminess beats which is a timelined musical journey of the music i was hearing whilst trodding mud along through the festival towards the venue handing out free wristbands taking photographs, video, audio etc I would love anybody to listen to the final cut when ive got it all together, thanks to for providing thefun and hard work and dedication for the catalyst for me to share the experience to you..... Watch this space more to come soooon, Peace out ...... from me
