    Bearded Theory next year will be number 10 and the 10th one we've been to. It's been amazing watching it grow and getting involved - can't wait to see what they do to celebrate it! :D

    Great lineup so far. Thursday is going to feature bands from the first Bearded and the weekend includes the likes of Skunk Anansie, The Alarm, Sugar Hill Gang and Kismet :D

    We may have also sort of bought tickets for this. :)

    Although 3 Daft Monkeys are playing AGAIN. I'm sure they're stalking me! :mad:

    That Thursday lineup will bring back a few fond memories, we were there at the first ever Bearded (2008), in the back garden of a pub :D

    We enjoyed it so much we've been to every one since :) Next year will be no different.

    wiskey : And you can never get enough of the Three Daft Monkeys :hmm: :cool:

    I do remember a few years ago saying "see you next weekend" to them several times over the summer.

    I dunno, they were part of the reason we knocked beautiful days on the head.

    oh they weren't headlining, oh no, they were everywhere! playing impromptu gigs here or there, or proper gigs but 3 times a day, and always where I happened to be.

    I feel your pain, I really do. I used to make the effort to see them. Now I make the effort to avoid them. I nearly bought a lovely "Field of Avalon" t-shirt at Glasto this year, until I saw THEIR name was on it!

    Ticket already purchased for next year. May be tinged with sadness but I hope not. Fingers crossed for one of my festival friends, hoping she makes it.

    I only bought that shirt BECAUSE of 3DM.... :p

    Not really :D ...

    ... but you missed out on a classic shirt. And they only played the Avalon Cafe anyway, not the big Avalon top.

    Sorry to see this -- very biggest sympathies to your friend, and to you.

    it would be ok if they stayed in West Cornwall but you keep letting them out!

    I think you're all being a tad harsh here. Bastards etc!

    went to this last year (first paid festie in probs 15 years) and thought it was brilliant. gotta say though, the line up for 2017 so far looks underwhelming to say the least. we will probs still go though, and have a good 'un. safe as milk looks more my thing musically, but persuading my missus to sit through an entire nurse with wound set ain't gonna be easy, unfortunately!

    Magical Sounds line up announcement - Bearded Theory

    Sunday afternoon remains strongly a folk and instrumental dance music affair with 2 of the best providers of high-energy global folk, Ushti Baba and the 3 Daft Monkeys. As we move into the evening, the vibe gets more global and dubby as we prepare to finish the weekend immersed in global colour and sound. Headlining is the amazing Transglobal Underground – live plus special guests and joining them are Globular – Live, Dub Trees – Live, Kukan Dub Lagan – Live, 3 Daft Monkeys Live, DJ Indigo Herder, Ushti Baba – Live, DJ Indian Man Bhangra special and DRUM MACHINE

    As you say though it's 'so far', and the line-up's very far from complete yet ... just to be fair like.

    From the Berded Theory Facebook page back on 27th November, but this news doesn't seem to feature on the main site's line-up page yet :

    But I ewas veyr happy to see this news :) :cool:

    Also looking like I'll need to spend a fair but more time than usual in Magical Sounds, in 2017.

    Plenty of that line-up posted by edwinchester looks cracking ... :)
