The Cuban Brothers release video for new track Cookin’ (feat. Baby Bam)
No one knows what The Future holds, so massive respect to your future-selves for being such a brilliant crowd at Bestival this year. Everyone at Bestival HQ would like to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to you all!
Rob da Bank says: “Well, we went to The Future and it was well worth the trip… Another year of interstellar performances at Bestival from Major Lazer, Sean Paul, Bastille, The Cure, Glass Animals, Richie Hawtin, Years & Years, Fatboy Slim through to new blood SWMRS, Alice Jemima and Mura Masa. Where else can you get a meditation gong session, quaff bubbles in a double decker bus hot tub, go to an outrageous trannie party in the woods or enjoy mind-boggling shenanigans in Caravanserai, and nearly all of it baked in sunshine? With one headliner already booked for 2017, we hope you join the trip again”.

Dishing out neural nourishment witha series of compelling talks by the cream of the future-thinking crop, this year’s Bestiversity line-up runs the gamut of intrigue from the weird & wonderful to the scientific, political and downright nerdy!
Rob da Bank says: “If you’re looking to take the edge off the brilliant night before you can’t go wrong with a bit of Bestiversity. Inspired by my alma mater, Goldsmiths, and full of engaging info on the way forward for subjects as diverse as spirituality, compassion and sex, make sure you feed your brains with a bit of The Future!”
