Festival Insights: Bestival

Chase And Status DJ SetIn their second instalment of their coverage, Festival Insights discuss the ways some of the Bestival’s sponsors integrated their brands – from concept-driven paint parties to a gig atop a food truck. Bestival’s co-promoters, Get Involved come under the spotlight too, having played a major role in what organiser Rob da Bank referred to as ‘probably the best Bestival we’ve ever done’.

While we keep on nurturing our direct relationships and partnerships with media across the board, we also work hard to bring Bestival’s iconic identity to life,” said Ziggy Gilsenan, Managing Director of Get Involved. “We’ve always got great themes, which spark a lot of creativity and we’ve had a lot of fun with that again this year, using Desert Island Disco as a catalyst for content creation, producing some unique ideas and innovative campaign tools”.

 This coming Wednesday (17th September) at midnight, our splendid friends at Channel 4 will be stocking up on the glitter and sequins to present a truly dazzling Bestival highlights show. Capturing some of the weekend’s most exciting performances, there’s a host of big guns coming to your TV screens, including Clean Bandit, Major Lazer, Sam Smith, Foals, Beck, Chvrches, Basement Jaxx, Disclosure, Paloma Faith and Chic ft. Nile Rodgers. There are lots of interviews and skits too from the likes of Rob da Bank, The Cuban Brothers, Sam Smith, Nile Rodgers, 2 Bears, Basement Jaxx, Paloma Faith and lots more, plus there’s some sparkling action with our record breaking disco ball, and loads of lovely shots of our Desert Island Disco paradise filled with some rather fetchingly attired Besti-goers; see if you can spot yourself!

Bestival curator Rob da Bank said: “Well, what can I say? That was probably the best Bestival we’ve ever done, so to have it expertly captured by the power of TV is pretty special. With some exceptional performances from the weekend’s top acts, like Foals, Disclosure and, of course, Chic, I’ll be tuning in to Channel 4, so I can actually enjoy it, now that I’m not running around like my head’s on fire!”
