Bestival Announce First Acts


Bestival have announced the first acts of this year’s special 10th birthday festival. The theme for this year is ‘HMS Bestival’ and I’m recommending you definitely hop on board as it is set to be the biggest and best yet. Bestival always manages to secure some outstandingly legendary headliners and this year is no different. Take last year for example, how can you beat seeing Stevie Wonder playing ‘Superstition’ whilst you’re dressed as a Zebra?!

Well, Rob Da Bank and his team have been able to announce that Elton John will be headlining Saturday night and on a completely different spectrum, yet still just as legendary, the one and only Snoop Dogg will be headlining on Sunday. They have also announced some brilliant well known acts as well as those that very much up and coming. For example Bastille, Tom Odell, and Jessie Ware who have made it onto the bill after rising to fame in 2012.

For the current line up and further information about the festival, check out Bestival’s facebook page or their official website.
