BEARDED THEORY have announced that Asian Dub Foun­da­tion will now head­line Sun­day night, replac­ing the pre­vi­ous­ly announced Arrest­ed Devel­op­ment. I saw them in 2013 and they were one of the fes­ti­val highlights.

Asian Dub Foun­da­tion are one of the UK’s best known fusion bands, who effort­less­ly blend, rap­core, bhangra, dub, dance­hall and rag­ga, rock and punk into their own unique sound. Formed in 1993, their unique sounds and con­scious polit­i­cal lyrics have led them to become a main­stay on the UK and glob­al fes­ti­val scene, as well as being respon­si­ble for immer­sive expe­ri­ences such as their icon­ic David Bowie-endorsed re-scor­ing of La Haine, the George Lucas endorsed live sound­track to THX-1138, and writ­ing the score to arguably the world’s first dub/punk opera; Gaddafi: A Liv­ing Myth.

Michael Eccle­shall, spokesper­son for Beard­ed The­o­ry Fes­ti­val says, ““We are huge­ly thank­ful to our friends Asian Dub Foun­da­tion for step­ping in to head­line the fes­ti­val at such short notice. We can­not wait to wel­come them back to the fes­ti­val after their tri­umphant per­for­mance back in 2013, and to show them around our new home at Cat­ton Hall. We will do every­thing we can to ensure that the bril­liant Arrest­ed Devel­op­ment get to per­form at one of our future events.””

Beard­ed The­o­ry Fes­ti­val takes place between Thurs­day 26th and Sun­day 29th May 2016.

Fri­day night’s head­lin­ers are the Levellers.
