Double Grammy Award-winning HipHop trailblazers Arrested Development are now confirmed to headline the main Pallet Stage on Sunday night. With classics such as ‘People Everyday’, ‘Tennessee’, ‘Revolution’ and the ubiquitous ‘Mr Wendle’, Arrested Development will close the festival in style.
Performing immediately before Arrested Development will be Squeeze, one of the UK’s greatest New Wave / Post Punk bands. Formed in Deptford in 1974 and still fronted by the original partnership of Glen Tilbrook and Chris Difford, Squeeze’s hits are almost too numerous to list. However ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’ and ‘Another Nail In My Heart’ are just a few of those that are surely set to feature in this very special performance at Bearded Theory.
Other additions to the main stage lineup include post-rockers Rumour Cubes; unique German punk-reggae band The TiPs; poetic punks Wonk Unit, Banjo & Trombone-led 5-piece Mado et les Frères Pinard and London based Ska favourites, Popes Of Chillitown.
Festival favourites The Bar Steward Sons Of Val Doonican will also perform on the Woodland stage on Thursday (headliner still to be announced), by popular demand.
Bearded Theory Festival takes place between Thursday 26th and Sunday 29th May 2016 in the fabulous surroundings of South Derbyshire’s Catton Hall. With interest at an all-time high, and tickets selling faster than ever before, this year undoubtedly boasts the strongest line-up in their 9-year history.
Four Day Weekend Camping Tickets are priced at £97 (Adults), £52.50 (Under 16’s),
£21 (Under 12’s) and Under 5`s are free (ticket is still required). Booking fees apply.
