Cutting the cake for its 10th birthday, the multi award-winning Bestival will take over the fields and forests of the UK’s Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight. More than 400 acts will perform across a multitude of stages from open-air dance floors to Big Top and Bollywood tents, wooded amphitheatres, bandstands, roller rinks and anywhere else they’ll fit in.
The line-up is curated by leftfield DJ Rob da Bank, so acts pendulum between global superstars and household names to doe-eyed newbies, comedians, poets, speakers, walk around theatre and anything else that entertains.
It’s also famous for getting fans to dig into their fancy dress boxes. This year’s dressing up theme is HMS Bestival, which should complement the usual tomfoolery and quirkiness rather nicely, me hearties.
