Since its inception in 2004, Bestival UK has been at the forefront of the British festival scene, winning a multitude of awards. The original boutique festival attracts over 40K fans each year and is known for its creative vision and eclectic music.
Over the years, Bestival UK has attracted an incredible array of world-class artists including Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Beastie Boys, The Chemical Brothers, Missy Elliott, Amy Winehouse, The Cure, Pet Shop Boys and many more. They also hold the world records for their creations of the World’s Largest Disco Ball and the World’s Largest Bouncy Castle. The wonderful world of Bestival was born out of ten fun years of pioneering music events and record releases from Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best empire. The renowned music specialist had a dream to create his vision of the modern-day festival. Along with Creative Director and wife Josie da Bank and co-founders/partners John and Ziggy from Get Involved that dream is now reality. On a mission to change the face of independent festival culture, the fearless foursome are spreading the love worldwide. It’s Rob and Josie da Bank’s creative vision that sets Bestival apart. While the massive musical brain of Rob ensures the Bestival line-up is the most eclectic you’ll ever experience, it’s Josie’s creative wand that casts its magic over Bestival land. It’s this uniqueness that makes Bestival a wondrous world of discovery and adventure that will inspire peace, love and dancing not only in September, but all year round. The Bestival family includes; Bestival, Camp Bestival (family show), Common People, Bestival Toronto and now Bestival Bali.■
