Bestival 2014 was a record breaker! Our four-day Desert Island Disco was an incredible paradise filled with the coolest castaways having the best party of all time. Ever.
Rocking our magical Desert Island location and casting their spell across a sea of sequins, we had headline sets from OutKast, Foals and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, plus unbelievable disco action from Major Lazer, Disclosure, London Grammar, Basement Jaxx, Sven Väth, Annie Mac, Chase & Status, DJ Yoda, and The Cuban Brothers. There was more off the hook dancefloor behaviour at our brain-exploding rave boat The Port, the debut of our Invaders of the Future and Reggae Roots stages, the return of BBC Introducing and the magnificence of The Big Top hosted by BBC 6 Music, making it an incredible year for catching the best music around.
But as ever it’s not just about the music, there was food glorious food at the brand new Feast Collective, delicious cocktails at Josie da Bank’s Jam Jar Bar, jaw-dropping genius at Caravanserai, glam joy at the Grand Palace of Entertainment, madness and mayhem in the Ambient Forest, pageantry aplenty with the amazing Carnival Parade, and some especially epic fancy dress from you lot, our beloved Bestivalites, who make this festival so special.
Rob da Bank says: “I’ve just washed the glitter and magic Isle of Wight dust out of my hair for the third time since Monday and all I can think of are all the happy smiling faces of our best Bestival crowd yet. Hedonistic, fun and a bit wonky seemed to sum it up but you guys were looking after each other beautifully too… which after four days of partying is a must! Too many outstanding musical moments from headliners OutKast, Foals and Nile Rodgers, through to Beck, Basement Jaxx and a tear-jerking London Grammar, and too many amazing smaller bands to mention. Away from the noise the Feast Collective set the benchmark for festival food from now on, the Amphitheatre fell in love with spoken word and Shakespeare, we supported and raised money for a shed load of charities and Island ventures and, uh yeah, we broke the world record for the biggest disco ball. Boom! All in all a vintage Bestival, and we’re so glad you chose Bestival. Once the dust has settled, do the sensible thing and get onboard for 2015… See you in the magical fields in a year”.
