There's something strange in the water in Derbyshire because locals have a penchant for hanging around fields in May wearing fake beards. Sure there's the draw of top notch live music from top notch live acts that have included the likes of Cosmo Jarvis, The Undertones, The Whip, The Skints, The Last Republic and Wagner. There's also the lure of it being the first real festival of the season as well as the chance to be amazed by circus acts, go back in time to a medieval living camp, chill out in a tent made for chilling and throw pennies into the hat of a busker at one of the busk stops. But all of this is just a side show, the real thrill is to be part of world record breaking attempt as organisers attempt once again to gather the “most amount of people wearing a fancy dress beards in one place and at one time.”
