BEARDED THEORY FESTIVAL has announced the event dates, details and first set of artist bookings for 2013’s instalment of their award winning event.
Friday’s Main Stage will be headlined by Sheffield’s incendiary Reverend and the Makers. Also on the bill are Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart, Derby’s very own indie chart toppers The Beekeepers playing a rare show, and fellow locals Life & Times of Brothers Hogg.
Two more bands for the Friday main stage line-up will be released in December
Saturday’s billing is topped by the legendary Asian Dub Foundation. Joining them on bill is celebrated folk singer Seth Lakeman, reggae legend Macka B, classic rockers Quireboys, heavily requested punksters Citizen Fish, up & coming folk band AHAB and BT favourites Zombie Met Girl. One more band will be announced to complete the Saturday billing.
It will come as no great surprise to announce that Levellers will be headlining on Sunday after their late cancellation this year due to a fiddler’s finger injury. Levellers will close the festival in style on the Sunday night and are joined on the bill Liverpudlians The Farm who will be performing a greatest hits set, BT favourites Goldblade, acclaimed folk rock band Ezio, the heavily requested New Groove Formation. Three more acts will be announced in December to conclude Sunday’s festivities.
