About this festival
Bestival is one of the UK's most famous music festivals, popular for its hugely diverse lineups and warm embrace of creativity, which includes comedy, theatre, circus and art.
Now set at Lulworth Castle after moving from the Isle of Wight, Bestival brings its sparkle to the same site as its younger sibling – Camp Bestival – transforming the castle grounds into a haven of eccentricity and surrealism under a yearly theme. 2018's theme is the sea, so get planning those fancy dress ideas!
And when it comes to the music, Bestival has it all. Spanning across rock, indie, house, techno, hip-hop, D&B, reggae, garage and more, Bestival's lineup quite literally has something for everyone. The last edition played host to The xx, A Tribe Called Quest, Pet Shop Boys and Andy C.
