Winner of the Best Major Festival award in 2012, yet still retaining our boutique sensibilities, this year’s line-up is truly gargantuan, featuring headliners Elton John, Snoop Dogg and Fatboy Slim, with his very special Bestival Birthday Bash set, and a plethora of heavyweight acts such as Franz Ferdinand, M.I.A, The Flaming Lips, The Knife, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Annie Mac Presents, Seth Troxler, Julio Bashmore, Knife Party, Disclosure, and many more. Plus there’s the cream of the most exciting cutting edge music around from Bastille, The Strypes, Jagwar Ma and London Grammar to Bobby Tank, Tythe, The 1975 and beyond; you’ll be spoilt for choice!
But that’s not all, as we’ll have an exclusive appearance from London and New York’s hottest party purveyors Room Service, cabaret madness in the Grand Palace of Entertainment, outlandish action at The Wishing Tree, out of this world experiences in the Ambient Forest and outrageous adventures in Bollywood, Club Dada, the Polka Tent, the Swamp Shack and more, all wrapped up with our astounding Fireworks Finale!
