Food fanatics rejoice, last year’s gastronomic smash hit, The Feast Collective, is back at Camp Bestival once again, with myriad morsels of utterly piquant pleasure from some of the country’s finest eateries, helping us to create what we think is the ultimate taste-fest. Food has always been a leading light in the Camp Bestival line-up and with this year’s selection of artisan food producers, speciality chefs and street food gurus, plus a pop-up supper club and glorious food demonstrations, it will be an unmissable attraction for all your indulgent culinary needs.

This year’s Feast Collective Ambassadors, encouraging everyone to get stuck in to the wild flavours and innovative foods, include the man behind Ceviche, chef, restaurateur, Sunday Times Cookbook of the Year author and music producer Martin Morales who said: “Everyone can start small, and organic growth is the best way forward for a new food or drinks idea. That way can you experiment, gain fans and feel success in short but beautiful bursts. The Feast Collective aims to do just that, and I am very proud to be able to help and support them. By giving the opportunity to a carefully chosen group of food & drinks rising stars, everyone can enjoy this special moment created by independent, passionate, visionary and dynamic chefs and drinks people who are just starting out”.

#Bestival15 / #SummerOfLove

With over 25 stages, revolutionary soundsystems, zombie love-ins, psychedelic woodland adventures, 24-hour free haircuts, and a host of dazzling new attractions, Bestival’s Summer of Love is already looking pretty damn fit. But as ever, we want to get everyone we love involved, including this rather sultry bunch of musical marvels that will have you rockin’ Robin Hill all weekend long this September 10-13.

Love commando Rob da Bank says: “I’m well excited with this new batch of acts we’re announcing tonight. With so many identikit festivals about with similar acts and bills I’m proud that 12 years on we don’t go with the flow. If the indie amazingness of Drenge isn’t your bag then grimy faceslaps from Skepta and Wiley might be, and if you’re insane and don’t like the legendary junglist brilliance of Roni Size and his live Reprazent show then perhaps, just perhaps, you’ll be singing ‘to me, to you, to me, to you’ whilst dancing in a pair of ill-fitting tropical shorts to the Chuckle Brothers. No matter what, there’s plenty more fish in the sea to come, as our Summer of Love really starts to heat up. See you down the front”. Read more

The Mayor’s Music Fund is delighted to announce the acts that will perform at this year’s London Music Awards.

Commenting on the performers Mayor’s Music Fund Chief Executive, Ginny Greenwood, said: “What makes the London Music Awards stand out in a crowded market of awards events is that it showcases talent across many music genres and many decades. The musicians performing at this year’s event are no exception – from 10-70 years old they span pop & rock, dance & electronica, jazz and classical – a true reflection of the London music scene”.

#Bestival15 / #SummerOfLove

Our brand new arena, Slow Motion, is all about taking the festival experience to a whole new plane, creating a festival within a festival dedicated to connecting mind and body. As part of that trip we’re super-excited about our brand new psychotropic stage attraction, The Kaleidoscope. Featuring energising morning pursuits, pastoral musical vibes by day, wonky disco joys into the night and rapturous bespoke animations to amuse the mind’s eye, the Kaleidoscope stage will add a whole new dimension to Bestival’s bag this 10-13 September at Robin Hill Country Park.

Summer lover Rob da Bank says: “I’m more excited about our new Slow Motion festival within a festival than I have been about a new area at Bestival for years. Add to that the fact that Mrs da Bank has invented a new, insanely cool audio-visual stage called The Kaleidoscope, and I’m ready to pop… The Kaleidoscope will be populated by a mix of the best ambient, electronica and chill-out DJs known to man, offset by folk, soul, psychedelia and new wave electronic rhythms. Prepare to get horizontal and vertical all at the same time…” Read more
