Is anyone going this year? The lineup looks not too bad, Roxy Music et al.
Has anyone been before? Any good?
it's great, really relaxed well set up/organised etc like a much smaller Glastonbury and mainly at the dancier end of the spectrum.
Todd Edwards, Joy Orbison, Mount Kimbie, Flying Lotus, Flaming Lips, Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, Four Tet, SBTRKT, Portico Quartet, Joker, Everything Everything, DJ Yoda, DJ Zinc, Breakage, Gilles Peterson, Zero 7, Three Trapped Tigers, The XX, Ramadanman...
Can't bloody wait.
the last time i went to bestival was the most miserable festival experiece of my life (2008) so hopefully it can make a mends this year. the Dj lineup is INSANE
DJ lineup is mad :D
Got my ticket a while ago, never been before but very much looking forward to it.
Really hoping Girl Talk re-appears on the lineup. He was there for about a week before disappearing, although RDB says it's 99% that he'll play.
The dressing up thing is a concern though. I am genetically predisposed against the wacky to an almost psychotic extent. And i fear that i may explode raining bile and blackened bone across all within a 100 yard radius upon encountering the large number of people who seem to want to dress as robots/mermaids/pirates/beastie boys in the intergalactic video/aliens/random furry things of indeterminate origin...
Ive seen photos. is it as bad as i imagine it would be? will it be worse seeing as how i will probably be caned to the very limits of my being at various points?
Oh no! People are having fun...
There were just a lot of Beastie Boys. There were some excellent outfits though, particularly Predator, Power Lifter 2, Chewbacca and the 25 Freddie Mercuries.
anyone know if there will be more additions to the lineup? although it looks pretty good already!
Last year's was the best festival I've been to.
Bollywood tent was amazing; it was steaming in there.
My favourite memory was seeing Dirty Projectors at this lovely small stage besides the wood. Perfection.
apparently it's nearly sold out
please dont say that :(
The boat + ticket places still have a few though.
But now the payment plan ticket thing has finished I don't know if I can shell out till I'm back from Primavera and Glastonbury, when they'll probably be sold out.
Looking forward to Dizzee and Flaming Lips
