So… here they are. The Fall with Mark E Smith are will be gracing the Woodland stage. And BBC Folk award winners Sean Lakeman and Kathryn Roberts are also due to play in the same sylvan setting (replacing the Nova twins who have a touring commitment). Third new act on the bill are Scottish indie boys Glasvegas.
Steve Blount, Bearded Theory organiser, “has this to say:
We are hugely excited to be welcoming Seasick Steve to Bearded Theory’’s Spring Gathering 2017. Along with our other headliners Madness, Skunk Anansie and Slaves –– not to mention more than 100 other acts over 6 stages, –we believe this is without a doubt the strongest line up we have ever put together”

Seminal British rock act Skunk Anansie, and punk duo Slaves will headline on Friday. And (personal favourites here) the wonderful Alabama 3 will be making a very welcome return.

Derby local punk heroes ANTI-PASTI have also been confirmed (replacing the briefly-announced Anti-Nowhere League). And Hollywood based rock, rhythm and blues band VINTAGE TROUBLE will be making a Sunday evening appearance. This act have supported The Who, AC/DC, Bon Jovi and Paloma Faith, and been joined in their own concerts by Brian May.

Skunk Anansie, and punk duo Slaves (below) will headline on Friday. The unique Magical Sounds tent with its mix of global psychedelia and dance will feature Banco de Gaia, Transglobal Underground, Ed Tangent and Hebden Bridge’s own Tetchi.

Tickets are predictably going fast, and congratulations to Bearded Theory for keeping the tickets affordable – a weekend pass with camping is only £110.25. That’s for FOUR days of music plus as much revelry as you can cope with .
As a massive thank you to all loyal festival goers, Thursday’s “bonus” Pallet stage line-up will feature virtually the entire 2008 Saturday Main Stage bill. Appearing will be these Bearded favourites: Dreadzone, 3 Daft Monkeys, Tarantism, True Deceivers,Hobo Jones & The Junkyards Dogs and more with Don Letts presiding, to help celebrate our 10th anniversary year.
