There’s always been a flamboyant air around Bestival. With a cheeky touch of chi-chi style and a knowingly arched brow, the event has played host, over the years, to some of the most outrageous turns around, from the finest alternative cabaret to some deliciously debauched club action.
So, with the spectacular 10th birthday fast approaching (from September 5th-8th), organisers have lined up the biggest and the very best array of ostentatious entertainment you’re ever likely to see, as Bestival goes cruising!
Room Service, London and New York’s hottest gay party, is coming to Bestival’s brand new venue ‘The Port’ to hit you hard and deep with a festival premiere that’s exclusive to Bestival 2013!
There will be a soundtrack of killer underground house beats and aural stimulation from Go-Go Boys, plus some obligatory tranny madness thrown in for good measure, bringing Soho and the Meatpacking District to the Isle of Wight. Room Service takes you DOWNtown and keeps you UP all night with DJ’s Jodie Harsh, Kris Di Angelis and Severino. This is a deluxe gay dance party and a downright naughty secret.
DJ Jodie Harsh said: “I can’t wait to get to Bestival, and we’re shipping the whole Room Service troupe from Soho to the Isle of Wight. Prepare for hot boys, go-go dancer action and crazy tranny madness set to a soundtrack of underground house. That’s my kind of party!”
Also celebrating a joyous tenth anniversary, Bestival HQ are very pleased indeed to welcome back the fabulous Horse Meat Disco. A disco behemoth beyond compare, it’s the queer party for everyone where they’ll be slipping a sensuous selection of Italo-disco, house, oddities and punk/funk onto the soundsystem for your delectation. Inspired by the music and inclusive ethos of New York’s heady club scene in the 80s & 90s, the collective has garnered a unique reputation for throwing amazing parties with unmatchable sets.
But that’s not all: after last year’s spectacular debut, Bestival’s glorious adventure-land The Grand Palace of Entertainment is back! So leave your inhibitions at the door and crank up the fun factor… On the outside, it’s a beautifully decorated traditional fairground facade. On the inside, it’s a rainbow coloured pleasure-seeking, twisted, hot-house of fun.
In the daytime, masters of entertainment Massive in China will be presenting an eclectic and intriguing selection of comedy, cabaret, games, foot-stomping music, plus a generous sprinkling of other oddities and spectacles.
