This is... Bestival

With little sister show Camp Bestival already all sold out, there are now just a few tickets remaining for Bestival’s ‘Year of the Spectacular’. The remaining tickets are only available from Wightlink, so get yourself to their website to make sure you can celebrate the festival season’s glorious swansong at Robin Hill Country Park.

"This ain’t no marketing shenanigans, folks" says Bestival founder Rob Da Bank "This is time at the bar, the final furlong, the last lap, the final frontier and the end of the road for all you non ticket holders! What with a recession going on and some mega competition we're pretty chuffed to sell 40,000 tickets with 2 months to go. We won't say it again - this is your last chance."

Taking place from 11th -13th September, Bestival’s sixth outing promises to be a truly legendary weekend. With a brand new site layout, new Afterburner Stage & Blastival show, the Outer Space fancy dress theme, Heavenly Healing, the Pamper Lounge, Kids Garden, tea, cakes, amazing food and an eye-popping line up that includes Massive Attack, Kraftwerk, Elbow, MGMT, Fleet Foxes, Seasick Steve, Klaxons, Lily Allen, Soulwax, La Roux, Bat For Lashes, The Big Pink, Chase & Status, Toddla T, Appleblim and oh, so much more, all sprinkled with a very generous helping of Bestival magic.

As well as a full weekend of wizardry, Bestival-goers turning up to Robin Hill on the evening of Thursday 10th September will be treated to an extra-special screening of the 25th Anniversary Special Edition of the greatest rockumentary of all time, This Is Spinal Tap. The screening will be preceded by a special Never Mind the Buzzcocks-style quiz testing some special guests on their knowledge of the film whilst post-screening fun will see a ukelele band playing a selection of Spinal Tap faves and DJs rocking the dancefloor.
