Bestival Bestival, Isle of Wight: 4th-7th September 2014 Voted best major UK Festival by the UK Festival Awards 2010, this year’s Bestival won’t disappoint. The three day festival is held in Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight in England, taking place at the end of the summer since 2004. In 2013 it attracted 60,000 people and it is renowned for its more alternative and diverse atmosphere. Festival goers can expect to see all kind of acts – from big named DJs like Fatboy Slim and Annie Mac, to bands and artists like Florence + the Machine, Elton John, Snoop Dogg, and plenty of little known acts too. Apart from the music, revellers flock to Bestival for its range of vegetarian food, fancy dress day, and an inflatable church, among other weird and wonderful attractions. There’s also stuff for the kids to do. You can get to the Isle of Wight from mainland England by ferry from Southampton or Portsmouth.
