This year Rob da Bank are celebrating 10 years of Bestival; 10 fields of wonderment and 20 stages filled with amazing music, insane sideshows and magical happenings – It already reaches an EPIC status. But year after year Bestival’s stage is blessed with some pretty awesome acts and artists, and this year is no different. With headline appearances from Elton John, Snoop Dogg and now Fatboy Slim, sets from M.I.A, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, The Knife, Wu-Tang Clan, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Annie Mac Presents, and so many more, Bestival seems to outshine other UK festivals.
“It was at Glastonbury 2003 where I closed the Sunday Best stage for Rob da Bank that I first saw the glint in his eye to create his own festival. 12 months later I was headlining Bestival and TEN years on, here I am again, throwing them the biggest birthday bash possible and sharing the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg. It’s an absolute honour to return for this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times. You’ve come a long way, baby!” – Fatboy Slim
It’s an exciting line-up already and there are still more acts to be announced, so this year is bound to be crazy as ever! If you want more information on festivals in London or ways to get into festivals for free (including Bestival) check out our previous articles.
