Following his sell out Edinburgh run Andrew Maxwell, curator of Altitude Festival 2012 (the most fun you can have on the slopes!) has been nominated for this years Edinburgh Comedy Award. What a little Irish snowboarding comedy genius he is!
The days are flying by and as a wild weekend in our escapist world of wonder draws ever nearer we are extremely proud to announce that Bestival has sold out for the seventh year running! Lucky Bestivalites who managed to snap-up tickets for this year are in for a jaw-dropping four-day extravaganza of mind-melting magic!
With a glint in his eye and a spring in his step Rob da Bank said: “We’re mega proud to have sold out Bestival for the seventh year running. Selling 50,000 tickets for a 100% independent festival in the current climate is no mean feat but its all thanks to our wicked crowd of regulars and new Bestivalites and music lovers who have chosen to join us on the Isle of Wight in 3 weeks… Thanks for the support and see you in the magic meadows of Bestival!”
We are delighted to reveal the full entertainment line-up for the Madness House Of Fun Weekender.
Here’s what the band had to say about it…
“Life is a series of beautiful moments, this weekend is a moment in time where you can, we hope take some beautiful moments home with you. Please endeavour to introduce yourself to as many as possible, make new friends, dance, sing, laugh, give support, create joy, be decent, spread the love and most of all enjoy yourselves as much as you think is possible, you know it makes sense”
|’89 was the Summer of Love, but 2011 is definitely the Summer of RAP!
It’s the year of Hip Hop on the white Isle this year. The home of clubbing and dance music has opened its doors and stages to some of the biggest names in Urban and Rap this Summer, mostly thanks to pioneering moves by MTV, who recently brought Snoop Dogg to make his debut Ibiza performance at Amnesia.
Following the cancellation of Duran Duran’s Summer tour due to Simon Le Bon’s illness, MTV were left with a momentary gap in their calendar of events for this Summer’s ‘I Want My MTV Ibiza’ parties. However after much speculation, MTV naturally pulled in another A-lister to fit the bill and there’s possibly no bigger replacement than multi platinum selling American Rapper 50 Cent!
