News: Early festivals set scene for summer – BEARDED THEORY and ACOUSTIC FESTIVAL of Britain

Multi award-winning family-friendly festival, Bearded Theory have announced that the festival has completely sold out of tickets in every category.

Tickets are no longer available through any physical or online outlet, and organisers are urging anyone without a ticket not to travel to the festival, as none will be available at the gates.

Saturday night’s headliners Public Image Ltd feature legendary frontman John Lydon and a back catalogue that includes classics such as ‘Death Disco’, ‘Public Image’ and ‘This Is Not A Love Song’.

Double Grammy Award-winning hip hop trailblazers Arrested Development headline the Pallet Stage on Sunday night.

Amongst the other acts appearing over four days and five stages, Squeeze, Terrorvision and Wilko Johnson.

The festival also hosts a range of smaller stages and zones, including an extensive Crafts & Healing ‘Earth Area’ and The Something’ Else Tea Tent. The Convoy Cabaret will be bringing some mad cabaret along with comedy sides shows, punk hairdressers and a tattoo parlour.
