What a joy to see Bearded Theory festival back on track for 2022. Dates confirmed are 26-29th May, at its regular spot of Catton Hall, Derbyshire.

The lineup is looking good, nay, amazing with Patti Smith to appear. Also Placebo, and The Flaming Lips. The Flaming Lips will close the festival on Sunday, no doubt in their usual flamboyant style. Expect unicorns, Wayne Coyne in a hamster ball… and probably a giant “Fuck Yeah Bearded Theory” balloon too.

Other welcome returnees are: Peter Hook and the Light, The Selecter, Wilko Johnson, Dreadzone, Ferocious Dog, Misty in Roots and many others. Oh and the ever-popular Gaz Brookfield plus Dubioza Kolektive who won many a fan during their performance when they appeared at Bearded Theory in 2018.

Dead Naked Hippies and Shame and more are also performing. Also Tarantism.. let’s hope that the Magical Sounds tent will be back in full swing after it took a year off in 2019.
