The Main Stage was opened by festival staple Mr Motivator and soon after the legendary Chuckle Brothers, who certainly put a smile on the faces of the gathered crowds despite the driving rain and forming puddles.

Over in the Amphitheatre, the Huffington Post presented a talk on Anxiety In Your 20s: How It’s Affecting More Women Than Ever. Chaired by Poorna Bell, Executive Editor for The Huffington Post UK and Global Lifestyle Head, the session addressed why an increasing number of young women are encountering anxiety in their twenties.

Headliners The Cure (pictured left) returned to Bestival for the first time in 5 years with a 3-hour set. A fairly large audience gathered in the main arena to witness Robert Smith and co take to the Main Stage once more.
