The chart topping and platinum selling band complete the Main Stage Friday bill with The Whip, Sonic Boom 6, The Skints, Last Republic and James Warner Prophesies already being announced. The Membranes have also been confirmed as playing on the Sunday of the festival as well.

The Sunday theme for 2011 will be Lords and Ladies to celebrate the festival's arrival at it's new home, Kedleston Hall. Organisers hope to see festival goers' imaginations running wild.

The Drop Inn has also released a full schedule of DJs and Bands including Riptide, MC Spyda, SuperKaine, Robinson, Dave Angle, Dirty Bear and more more. For the line-up details as available please click here.

The festival will see over one hundred bands and DJs perform over seven stages in 2011. The site will have improved the new Magical Sounds Chill Out Dome, site artwork, showers, craft village, huge children village, real ale/cider bars, world foods and much more. The gates open for Thursday night ticket holders at 2pm on Thursday 12th May 2011. The gates will open to standard ticket holders at 9am on Friday 13th 2011.

Bearded Theory will be taking place within 850 beautiful acres of parkland at Kedleston Hall. Kedleston Hall is only a couple of miles from the old the festival site and organisers hope that this will be the festival's final move.

This year the Live in Vehicle Area has been improved dramatically with all ticket holders being given free shower tokens, there's an increase in toilets, a designated steward team, and plenty room to swing a cow.

Tickets are now on sale with a weekend ticket priced at £70, 12-16 weekend tickets are priced at £34, 5-12 weekend tickets are priced at £24, children under 5 are free and Family Tickets are priced at £180 (2 x adult & 2 x children). All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
