12 New Things For Bestival 2012

Including:

CALL OF THE WILD!

BESTIVAL’S WILDLIFE THEME GOES FOR YOUR ANIMAL INSTINCT

Plus:

ORBITAL GET WONKY AT ROBIN HILL

And:

ROB DA BANK TO ANNOUNCE A BAND A DAY

Bestival, Robin Hill Country Park, Isle Of Wight – 6th to 9th September 2012

With some rather handsome Bestival announcements on the horizon, the mighty Rob da Bank and the Bestival crew are so excited that we just can’t contain ourselves! So, with that in mind, we’re going to ‘leak’ a few choice nuggets of loveliness for your delectation with 12 new things for Bestival 2012 including our untamed fancy dress theme and a tantalising touch of live news.

Rob da Bank says: “I’ve never been pestered so much on Twitter and even in clubs and on the street about who’s playing Bestival this year so we thought we’d better start the proceedings. Legendary brothers of rave Paul and Phil Hartnoll aka Orbital are the first act who have self-announced themselves today… and what a classic to kick off on. As ever the theme of Bestival is a hotly debated topic – this year it’s Wildlife – so maybe you’re thinking foxes, badgers or flamingos or go a bit more lateral and think of wild men and women, hedonists and crazy people? It’s an open book as ever. More news very soon!”
