eFestivals can exclusively reveal the first acts for Bearded Theory 2013.

Maroon Town
All the acts are confirmed for Tornado Town which returns for a second year to bring to the 'village fete gone wrong' a relaxed atmosphere, where festival goers can go and chat and see some quality acts during the day. Whilst at night the tempo usually picks up and the musical menu will be wide ranging being anything from Hoedown to Swing and anything in between.

Headlining Friday night will be dance ska band Maroon Town. Also confirmed are Buster Shuffle, Left Step Band, Port Erin, John Robb's post punk outfit The Membranes, Tornado Town House Band the Boot Hill All Stars, Bootscraper, The Bakseats, Frenzy, and Sunday Driver.

Bearded Theorists can also expect competitions throughout the weekend and the area will hosts the usual Sunday Morning surprise slot that Bearded Theory has become famous for.

Every year Bearded Theory attempts to break the world record for the most amount of people wearing a fancy dress beards in one place and at one time.

The Tornado Town stage will join the Main Stage, Magical Sounds Stage, and Angel Gardens Stage next year. eFestivals believes Levellers have already agreed in principle to headline the event next year.
