parkofthedeadzombieloveinbestival2Ghoulish groovers are invited to hit the dance floor as the Zombie massive large it up at Bestival this year, with over 20 characters from the Island’s Park of the Dead Halloween event taking part.

For nearly 5 hours the Sugar Skulls Stage will play host to the Zombie Love In with funky fuelled, floor filling, hands in the dance floor devastators.

Hosted by Ian ‘Knocka’ Dore, Dan Gaches and DJ AB, the Zombie Love In has all the hallmarks of being an essential part of this year’s Bestival. Music wise expect a backbone of funky tunes (predominantly played off vinyl) with some classic limbs in the air tracks thrown in for good measure, ensuring a roof raising soiree.

Ian Dore said:

“All this came about as Rob Da Bank and I had been chatting about it for a couple of years but until now there hasn’t been an appropriate time for Zombies to be ‘raving the dead’. We thought it would be a giggle to get some zombies grooving with a Love In so here we are.”

The Zombie Love In features over 20 of the characters from the uber popular, top ten UK Halloween event, Park of the Dead and is already on some Bestival goers hit list as a  ‘must attend’ party.

Ian continued:

“Although featuring the characters, it’s not a Park of the Dead event as clearly they are polar opposites. What we’ve done here is mash it up a bit, created a synergy with the Sugar Skulls concept and as it’s all about escapism, it’s another Bestival belter. The other DJs and Park of the Dead crew are really looking forward to it and we all hope you come and enjoy our excitement, get dressed up and try and use the word ‘Ghoulies’ as much as possible”.
