Desert Island Disco Tees




Are you fully prepped for our Bestival 2014 Desert Island Disco fest? Whether you’ve already got your sparkly attire ready to roll, or you’re still frantically sewing sequins to your dad’s flares, which haven’t seen the light of day since the 70s, never fear, we’re here to help disco-up your Bestival suitcase!

Bestival is always bang on-trend when it comes to a theme – from the likes of Outer Space in 2009, to HMS Bestival in 2013 – we’ve inspired some truly fancy dressing and a wealth of comical costumes! Excited by the boundless possibilities of this year’s Desert Island shenanigans, our good friends and t-shirt impresarios Rapanui have created a deliciously disco-infused range of beautiful t-shirts. Sure to compliment any wonderfully wacky costume you may have planned, they’re also the perfect starting point for anyone in need of just a little bit o’ inspiration! The collection includes Men’s, Women’s & Kids’ tees, featuring an array of designs that will blow your minds with insane amounts of disco, toucans, pineapples, palm trees, mirror balls and tie-dye! At just £19 for a tee and £40 for a sweat, most designs are available in different colours and sizes giving you plenty of scope to get creative and experiment! And that’s not all – they’re super eco-friendly to boot!

 As announced by Tom Ravenscroft on BBC Radio 6 Music, we’re very proud to announce that BBC Introducing will be returning to Bestival to host a stage at our Desert Island Disco bonanza for the first time since 2007!

 We’ve always heralded the best new music at Bestival and this year is no different – joining a line-up already featuring some of the greatest rising acts from around the world, the addition of the BBC Introducing Stage means that you’re guaranteed to discover your favourite new act at Bestival! Tickets are currently flying so secure your place at our boundary-pushing jamboree now to avoid future woes!

Rob da Bank says: “Breaking new bands and DJs is what we do at Bestival. We love having big headliners and loads of great acts we all know and love, but every year the crucial thing for us and many of you is to stumble across an incredible mind-blowing act you didn’t even know existed, then buying their records and telling all ya mates about them. That’s why I’m so pleased BBC Introducing are coming back with an epic selection of up-and-coming talent to tickle our ears. Roll on September!”
