Pizzatramp, counting coins, popes of chillitown , wonk unit, Matilda scoundrels, inner terrestrials, faintest idea , captain hotknives, random hand

I want to dance in a tent to Carl Chaotic's Wireless Soundsystem! Local, loved, been keeping the underground deep house movement alive for years, this would be epic, this is all that's missing, it's such a great festival! Xx β€οΈπŸ’š

Depeche mode, toots and the Maytels, inspiral carpets, royksopp, 2many dj's, wailers, macca B, the Specials, Justin Robertson, but tbh, you always sort it out, so what do I know?!

Leftfield, Orbital, Faithless, Afro Celt Soundsystem, The Waterboys, The The, Johnny Marr, Julian Cope, and of course the Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican (can these be an annual fixture now guys?)

Folk the system, Levellers, 3 daft monkeys, hobo Jones and the junk yard dogs, ferocious dog, new model army, Tim Minchin, dokovi kolective, stiff little fingers, wonder stuff, Newton Faulkner, doozer mcDooze, gaz Brookfield, barsteward sons of Val doonican, fox and the pirate, Brian stone, meds atomic dustbin, sisters of mercy, placebo, green day,

Pretenders, Garbage, Louise Distras, Skinny Lister, Idles again, Muncie Girls (young band), John Otway, Attila and Barnstormer, the Cure (in my dreams), International Teachers of Pop, Human League, Halestorm (rock).

Something brilliant and new. It’s discovering new stuff at festivals for me. Rolling out big overblown names is the death knell of festivals where the crowd changes and the feeling goes. Keep it fresh!

Definitely some of the local celebrated soundsystems, SmokeScreen, Wireless, DIY, Babble would be amazing. As would Crazy P, Goldwater, The Brandy Theives and the 40hertz

Please please please no psytrance. It's the Midlands, we play funky deep house. And The Beatles, as zombies.

Echo and the Bunnymen, Stranglers, The Skids, Gary Numan, Wildhearts, Frank Turner, Urban Voodoo Machine (please can they play every year πŸ˜‰) thanx

Neds Atomic Dustibin (I couldn't come the year they played) and Sultans of Ping FC. Basically if I only saw them all weekend I'd be happy.

It simply has to be the The Bar-Steward Sons of Val Doonican - so many missed out this year as the Woodland was full up. They really deserve a repeat or even better..... a main stage slot. You know it makes sense πŸ™‚

Half Man Half Biscuit, The Wildhearts, Black Thorn, a few people have said Duran Duran and I agree they would be interesting. Chas & Dave, Terrorvision

Dreadzone,Aswad,system7,leylines,3 daft monkeys,urban voodoo machine,folk the system,black water county,any 70,s punk band,Any dub reggae band,Noble jacks,,FD,Alabama3 to name a few

Burning spear / steel pulse or another big roots reggae headliner for the pallet. Leftfield & more dub & drum and bass in magical sounds (the mad hatterz takeover has been great last couple of years)! Malabi tropical (fantastic Israeli band please check them) and The Hatstand Collective (brilliant original psychedelic funky rootsy blow ya socks of fusion of wonderful people and musicians, please check them out) for the Maui Waui stage, would go down a storm ❀

The Pixies, Violent Femmes, Echo and the Bunnymen.....oh and Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican.....whoever you get will be good. Never had a bad line up. Always something for everyone and someone new to discover. Keep up the good work.

Those DJ's in the woodlands on the Thursday before Jon McClure were fantastic. Place was bouncing!!!! So, Greg Wilson, Joey Negro, Kenny Dope, Norman Jay, Crazy P, Horse Meat Disco for more of this feel good genre please πŸ™‚

Vintage trouble, reverend and the makers, bar steward sons of Val Doonican, Sweetchunks band, Funke and the two tone baby, levellers would be brilliant. Wi have a good time whatever the line up though

Rev peytons big damn band, wonk unit, samantics, unknown era, L7 (I can dream right?!), mr tea and the minions, the barsteward sons of val doonican (because it wouldn't be bearded without them), doozer mcdooze, skinny lister, yur mum

Without sounding rude I pay for my tickets to get surprised by your amazing band choices. My favourite festival of the year because you choose bands I wouldn’t so I’m leaving it to the experts

Dirty vertebrae, ferocious dog, holy moly & the crackers, gaz Brookfield, mighty mighty bosstones, skunk anansie, bar steward sons of val doonican, bloodshake chorus, wille & the bandits.

Bands for the main arena stages and Convoy Caberet (acts for Magical Sounds & spoken word tents to follow): The Horrors Toots and the Maytals Hawkwind - on the Pallet Stage Sat night! Nik Turner - in Convoy Caberet Friday night! Billy In The Lowground on the Woodland stage, Sunday afternoon please First Aid Kit Mogwai Underworld...with Iggy Pop if possible please! Wilko Johnson with special guest Roger Daltrey The Wonder Stuff Public Service Broadcasting (tbc, need to listen to their latest album) Plus, if possible... Late night chill out area(s) playing ambient and/or dub reggae sounds in one or two of the new spoken word/theatre tents, thanx!

Stereo mc's ,dust junkies, the Devils , nofx, leather face, adf, Afro Celt sound system, Julian cope, faith no more, senser, ozrics, Adam and the ants, wounderstuff pop will eat itself big audio dynamite, dread zone, teenage zombies, no particular order just as they popped into my head πŸ˜€

Bar Steward Sons of val Doonican, Faerground Accident, Levellers, Pronghorn and then just surprise us - but dont waste the money on a big name.

Terrorvision - new model army - levellers - Adam ant- peter hook (joy division set) - human league - goldblade -rev n makers - siouxsie- the damned-wonk unit - dirt box disco - hung like hanratty-subhumans/culture shock/ Neville staple band - bar stool preachers - jaya the cat-everly pregnant brothers-Jim Jones revue-rumjacks-UK subs-b52’s- to name just a few 😜😜😜😜

Anyone still waiting for a PayPal refund? Yep! Overdrawn now to the max! Because duplicate tickets bought and Bearded Theory accepting no liability! It's your frickin festival man! Get a grip!

Seems the school, has Sold out too, and is there no option to book family camping this year?

Added 3 tickets to the basket at 09:00, did the Capcha then was told they were gone. Now at full price. Did all these go to people who paid deposits?

Early bird not available at 9.00.....oh my word that was quick! Literally seconds....

Joy Wylie, Joe and I bought our tickets! Joe managed to get early bird and I had one in my basket but it froze and disappeared so had to pay full price πŸ€” But, we're going again!! Xx

woohoo! Got mine, see you there!

Got ours πŸ‘

Got ours! Can’t wait!😁

Can't believe the early bird tickets went so fast. Got tickets but at full price!
