Bearded Theory 2015 Memories

Tomorrow morning sees me head off to my favourite festival of the year.

Beautiful Days festival at Escot Park in Devon is just a wonderful medium sized festival.  It doesn’t have the biggest names in music but what is does have is an atmosphere that is totally unique.  The festival is more about the people who attend than just about another festival I know.

Somewhat depressingly the weather here in Dorset today is foul.  It is pouring with rain and I am sat indoors wearing three layers.  Sadly it looks like the weekend may prove to be a wet one. 

To cheer my self up a little I have been browsing my photographs of this years Bearded Theory, another of my favourite festivals.  This year we were blessed by beautiful weather so i thought I would share a few happy memories to banish the blues.  Enjoy.

About The Sound of Summer

Hi, I am Alan. I live in Broadstone, Dorset with my wife, Shirley, my son, Ryan and two dogs called Bailey and Jasper. I have recently retired after working in the Armed Forces and in Public Service since 1977 so I now have a bit more time to do the things I love. Music is a huge part of my life and always has been. I have a broad taste in music and can find something to enjoy in most styles of music. I have always been attracted to music which has something to say, is outside the mainstream and is perhaps a bit rebellious. I guess my early influences were late 1970's Punk and new wave bands, especially those who came out of Northern Ireland where I grew up. I loved Stiff Little Fingers, The Undertones, Rudi, Starjets etc but also bands like The Ramones, The Clash, The Jam and so on. I like singer songwriters including Van Morrison, Springsteen, Neil Young & Bob Dylan and in recent years I have become more interested in folk and acoustic music but I also love the sort of high drive energetic Folk/Punk music delivered by bands like The Levellers, Leatherat, Ferocious Dog and many others who frequent the UK Festival scene. I have long since lost the desire to spend my holidays laying around in the sun and these days am much more likely to be found in a muddy field somewhere in the UK during the festival season.
