Bearded Theory Festival 2017

164 posts in this topic

Decided on this to celebrate my 50th next year. Went along for the first time last year and loved it (PiL were incredible). Music is right up my street and it's just round the corner from me. Used to follow NMA around on tour in my late teens and also saw the Alarm a couple times too. Dreadzone I've seen more recently and thoroughly enjoyed and am already looking forward to Skunk Anansie. Add in Sugar hill gang and Selector and I'm fully sold on the lineup.

Tickets bought.

For me the standout in the announcement is Slaves. Don't let the Radio 1 badge put you off, they are loud, aggressive, funny and have great energy live, especially for a 2 piece. They also have some utterly cracking tunes. They're very sweary, don't know if they'll be asked to censor themselves at a 'Family' festival :D

Ive only ever seen them in small venues, so really looking forward to them. Followed by Skunk Anansie. What a way to start BT 2017!

"Big florida export" for Bearded apparently. I'm guessing Lenny Kravitz. 

What with them playing Slam Dunk on the same weekend, I would have thought LTJ look pretty likely for the Floridian thingy.

I thought the Florida thing was sugarhill gang. Such a shame about LTJ, was gutted when I saw that slam dunk line up. For me LTJ would be perfect for BT

Ah well, maybe next time......hopefully

Surely the Don Letts confirmation means that Big Audio Dynamite are a cert? Half the members are there already.

Amazing to think what it all started out as. Has the BT School helped in winning the award? and do you think that others will follow suit? Favourite festival of the year for me, beats all the others hands down

This had crossed my mind too, but I'm not sure how it could work as they are all there the Thursday night - not sure they'd all be hanging about all weekend....

I agree 

Bearded is the one nailed on early bird every year - all others are now lineup dependent...

I hope so :)

But there is loads of other kids and family stuff going on as well - the whole kids and teens areas are great!
