Bearded Theory 2018 – Tickets on sale 0900hrs Sat 9th Sept 2017

One of our favourite UK festivals, and a festival we always report from – Bearded Theory has announced tickets for the 2018 festival will go on sale at 0900hrs Saturday 9th September 2017

2018 will be the 11th Bearded Theory Festival, and will no doubt like each of the previous events sell out in advance. Despite pestering organisers we only have whispered rumours as to some of the headliners being looked at; if any of these are confirmed 2018 will be a excellent event!

May 24th – 27th 2018

Due to increased costs for additional trackway in pedestrian areas following a review of our site against issues experienced at other festivals this summer, more staffing, toilets and 2 new venues, organisers have had to tweak prices a little bit this year but have offered 1000 extra early bird tickets to try and offer the best value while continuing to deliver the best festival.

Campervan tickets have increased for the first time in 5 years by £2.50 to get more showers in these fields and additional trackway.


All tickets include Thursday entry. That works out to be just £25 per day for music and camping or £28.75 a day if you buy the standard ticket.
All children activities will remain free of charge.
Please note we expect the Early Bird tickets to sell out in record time such is the demand for the festivals tickets currently and the fact the capacity is not increasing in 2018.

Early Adult: £100 (2000 allocation) – Standard Adult:£115
Age 12 – 15: £55
Age 6-11: £28
Age 0-5: FREE
Cars: £12.50
Campervans & Caravans: £37.50

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
