Not a festival that would normally get a mention on here due to it’s Glastonbury-like diversity, but because this is their 10th Anniversary event, and there are several names on the bill that are quite tasty, here’s a nod to:-

Bearded Theory 2017 Catton Hall (Catton Park); Walton-on-Trent (that’s just off the A38,mid-way between Burton-on-Trent & Lichfield).
May 25th - May 28th.

The event is spread over several stages, but attractions include:- Skunk Anansie; New Model Army; Mike Peters & The Alarm; Alabama 3; Madness; The Selector; Cast; Wille & The Bandits; Wheatus; Don Letts; and one of my favourite singer/songwriters - Josh Doyle.
