AT THE FESTIVAL CONGRESS AWARDS
ROB DA BANK RECEIVES OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION AT THE FESTIVAL CONGRESS AWARDS
Off the back of one of the finest festivals we’ve ever put on, 2014 is shaping up to be a truly bumper year for Bestival, scooping two awards at two different awards shows in the last week, with Bestival bossman da Bank in on the award action, too.
First up at the prestigious Live Music Business Awards in front of the great and the good from the UK live scene, we were very honoured indeed to pick up the award for Best Festival in the 40,000+ capacity category. Being recognised for the effort that the Bestival team puts into the show is something we’re massively grateful for, so big thanks to everyone at Live UK.
But it didn’t stop there, this weekend at the Association of Independent Festivals’ inaugural Festival Congress Awards, Bestival picked up the Smart Marketing Campaign of the Year for our world record breaking Disco Ball efforts, which is an accolade we’re all very proud of. Not only that though, Bestival curator Rob da Bank was also recognised by the awards panel for his Outstanding Contribution to the festival scene, something which we hope you’ll agree is richly deserved.
