Gutted that Glastonbury isn’t on this year? Fret not! Bestival is just as good as Glastonbury. Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank makes sure a lot of effort goes into the design of the festival grounds, with huge bright displays giving the illusion of good weather(even if there isn’t). The festival also aims to create a sense of unity amongst fans by setting up a fancy dress theme each year. This year’s theme is wildlife.
Where : Robin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight
When : 6-9 September 2012
