Bestival Music Festival

Want to go to a music festival? Well you still can.

Bestival is a four-day music festival held in the Isle of Wight at the beginning of September. Starting in 2004, this festival has grown from a medium sized festival to becoming the best major UK festival in the UK (voted 2010, 2012).

Although I have yet to attend this festival myself many of my friends have, and they all absolutely love it (so much so they are all going again!). When people talk about Bestival, the general consensus is "Glastonbury without all the walking!" - what more could you want...other than maybe the promise of no rain!?

Another reason why people choose Bestival is because you can STILL buy tickets. While all the other festivals this summer sold out months ago, you can go on their website and purchase a ticket for the great value of £180.

Obviously regardless of the price (and the weather) everyone looks at one thing when it comes to festivals: the line up. The 2013 Bestival headliners are: Elton John and His Band, Fatboy Slim and Snoop Dogg. Also playing are Franz Ferdinand, Jessie Ware, Tom Odell, Disclosure, Bombay Bicycle Club,  Belle & Sebastian, James Blake, The 1975 and many many more. For more line up info check out:

So if you are regretting your decision to resist festivals this year, or you feel one or two festivals just isn't enough, than this is a great solution for you.
