Well, what an adventure this promises to be… Bestival has a beautiful new home with a massive castle in the middle of it, acres of beautiful woodland and forest, a sea view and the dramatic Jurassic coastline. The festival is going back to their roots with Josie da Bank’s hand-drawn artwork, reviving all our favourite stages from 14 years of Bestival history and going out with all their headliners for the first time ever together. From pop to grime, hip-hop to techno, folk to classical and every style in between Bestival are reclaiming their place as the fun-est, most adventurous, musically savvy and downright magical festival on the map at the Lulworth Estate, Dorset this 7th – 10th September.
