Quality live act go see them

Lisa Quig were going!😀

Great news!! These guys are something else live, Bearded Theory is in for a treat!

Saw them at 2Q in Lincoln at the end of last year and they are really something else. Definitely one to see live. I honestly wasn't all that sure when I checked out a few tunes prior to going, but seeing them perform live was amazing and their energy onstage is something to behold.

Phenomenal band. Was totally awestruck when I saw them. Can’t wait

Neil Ehrhart !!!

80 nights to the “oooh look how much beer I’m taking - aren’t you really, really impressed? “ posts too 🤣🤣🤣

I’m glad I’m an insomniac, only 2 more sleeps for me before BTSG!

It’s an epic lineup this year, great stuff, thank you.

Its 89!

Lucy Spraggan wow'ed us a couple of years ago in the Woodland so much that we thought we'd ask her back for 2020 - who else has Lucy on their 'must see' list?

Me. She was bloody brilliant

Fantastic set last year. I only hope she doesn't clash with the Dub Pistols.

R u going Jane Height

I can't wait to see her! One of the young people I work with put me on to her and now we listen all the time to her in our one to one sessions! Hopefully will be able to pick up a bit of LS merch to take back up north for the young lady I'm working with!

Just another reason you two should come to Bearded....Sophie Norton 😁

We’ve seen her a few times with our daughter and after her Woodlands set 2 years ago she recorded a video with us to send to our daughter as she couldn’t be there. Fantastic person and great artist, can’t wait to see her again 👍🏻

Lucy Ann

I do. I discovered her through youtube and thought that she'd be a good festival turn. Then as if by magic "Bearded Theory" book her for me. Thanks BT. See you for number 11 in May. (11 for me)

Stephen Clarke

Me even if when we were introduced she said Steve? My best friend Is called Steve... He's my dog. Charming!! Lol

I haven't listened to her yet but I hear she come highly recommended so will give her a listen in case I need to add her to my must see list

Brilliant live performer.

Me too! She was brilliant! 😍

Sharon Gray Rose 👏

Oh - I really enjoyed her set. Great!

Paula Gamble 😜😜

Me I saw her locally and brilliant artist

Mike Richmond

Me and the girl child. Loved her last time 😍🎶

Yes!!!

Ann-Marie Idle

Lizzi Rose

Been coming for years but had never ventured into the campsite as we’ve got a camper. Discovered it for the first time last year. What a jem. Really lovely relaxed friendly cozy venue.

The appeal of the acts to my taste will determine whether I buy tickets or not. Blind faith might work for some, but not this monkey. Stereo MCs and Radical Dance Faction would be a good start, but The Cult are a hard act to follow, so make it good!

Billy Bragg as he’s not been for a few years! Nick Parker. Funke was great on the Woodland stage. Doonicans on the main stage so we can all see them. Seth Lakeman. I’d like to see the Webb Sisters again if they’re still touring.

The Skids (on the main stage), Oh Sees, Fontaines DC, Liines, Wedding Present, Holy Moly & the Crackers, Belly, Six by Seven, Verucca Salt, Sleeper and Bellowhead (if you can get them together again), Public Service Broadcasting…….that’ll do. I’m in if you get at least 3 of them. Cheers.

Lots of punk rock, folk, ska, reggae, alternative and less of the indie. I’m not one to moan though 😉

Joking aside there are some awsome acts out there that are just off the radar of BT. I did give my fully costed (although they worked for the Conservatives finance department) line up previously.

Five that have never played before
The Interrupters
The Menzingers
Nosebleed
Leftfield
Grace Petrie

Julie Grant September 8, 2019 - 9:09 am

My major BT highlights were Jesus and Mary Chain and Glasvegas, also seeing Eastfield on the pallet stage. Convoy Cabaret so many – Hagar the Womb, Omega Tribe in particular. Would love Subhumans. Wonk Unit, Slaves, Slow readers club and Dubiosa kolektiv were also great. What about the Lovely Eggs and A place to bury strangers?
