It’s the dawn of a brand-new era for one of the craziest weekends on the UK calendar – Bestival.
The brilliant festival has just announced four incredible headliners and a huge bill of amazing music, as it enters a new chapter of light and sound, exploring the wonders of Colour.
In 2017 the Bestival crew are moving their party over to the Lulworth Estate, in beautiful Dorset.
“Well what an adventure this promises to be… we have a beautiful new home with a massive castle in the middle of it, acres of beautiful woodland and forest, a sea view and the dramatic Jurassic coastline. Going back to our roots with Josie da Bank’s hand-drawn artwork, reviving all our favourite stages from 14 years of Bestival history and going out with all our headliners for the first time ever together, we’re pretty excited at Bestival HQ. From pop to grime, hip-hop to techno, folk to classical and every style in between we are reclaiming our place as the funnest, most adventurous, musically savvy and downright magical festival on the map. Please come along for the ride. and remember Increase the Peace” ~ Rob da Bank

Hip-hop heroes A Tribe Called Quest will headline Saturday at Bestival 2017, performing what will be their last UK Show – wow.
