BESTIVAL ADDS MORE NEW MUSIC

Bestival Main Stage (c) Louise Roberts (louiseroberts.co.uk) 2011With the recent news that Bestival Friday night headliner will be party-starter extraordinaire Fatboy Slim, a triumvirate of amazing must-see headliners is complete as he joins the previously announced Elton John and Snoop Dogg. And now, Bestival HQ’s attentions turn to adding yet more incredible new live music and DJs to the once again mammoth line-up.

Scooping the UK Best Major Festival award last year yet retaining its boutique sensibilities, Bestival’s spectacular 10th birthday this September 5th-8th is going to be the greatest show on earth with more fun per square metre than you’ll find anywhere else; it’s absolutely unmissable!

HOWARD MARKS

In the spirit of nautical adventuring, this August, HMS Bestival will be visiting another beautiful island to bring the seafaring party to W.A.R! at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel. Rob da Bank will have the Balearic beats on hand on Friday 16th August for the HMS Bestival x W.A.R! ship voyage in the afternoon, then back on the island at the Ibiza Rocks Hotel, with the main event taking place in the form of a festival-fuelled royal knees-up with Jaguar Skills, Shy FX and other special guests jumping aboard the decks for the first ever HMS Bestival x W.A.R! event.

Finally, The Child Of Lov has cancelled all of his summer dates, so he won’t be joining Bestival as previously announced.
