THE Bearded Theory music festival in Derbyshire has put together a bill bristling with talent for 2013.
A spokesman said: “Main Stage Additions include Stiff Little Fingers, New Model Army, The Farm, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Ruts DC and current Mercury Music Prize Nominees, The Hummingbirds.
“Other notable additions to the festival’s line up include Magical Sounds Dance Stage Headliners The Egg, A Guy Called Gerald and Subgiant.”
And fresh from unveiling a truckful of new acts to brush shoulders with the likes of headliners Asian Dub Foundation, The Levellers and Reverend And The Makers, Bearded Theory has put together a Festival Anthems Soundcast playlist for Sound Advice to showcase the sounds that will be rocking Kedleston Hall this Summer.

VERSECHORUSVERSE, AKA Tony Wright, has released a punk covers album in aid of cancer charities.
The album from the former …And So I Watch You From Afar member tackles tracks by Sonic Youth, Fugazi, Nirvana, Stiff Little Fingers, The Clash and the Undertones and costs as little as 50p.
He said: “Punk rock. Alternative music, or whatever else you want to call it has long been my refuge.
“I decided to take some of the songs that had help shape me musically, and re-imagine them into a manner in which the production was stripped to some guitars, vocals, harmonica, handclaps and, most importantly, the sentiment.”
