Beat Feast began as a student night at Reading University in 2002 created by Ben Phaze along with fellow students Will T and Laki. The idea was to provide somewhere to hear quality music and to have an opportunity to DJ both of which were hard to find in Reading at that time. After finishing studies Ben continued the events in town and introduced an open decks and open mic policy which allowed the events to grow and evolve.
Some of the regular guests became part of the crew and Beat Feast developed into a collective of DJs, VJs and artists. Over the next 6 years they organised more than 150 events all over Reading and travelled around the South of England bringing their Beat Feast flavour to festivals, club nights and parties.
Thanks to everyone who has been a part of Beat Feast be it DJing, VJing, painting, flyering, serving drinks, working on the door or dancing your arse off. We hope you enjoy the site which has been preserved in its original style with photos, flyers and comments from back in the day as well as loads of DJ mixes from the Beat Feast DJs that you can download for free.
Check out some of the exciting new projects the crew are up to now on the crew page.
