Why Choose Bestival?

Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls roll-up, roll-up for the Most Colourful Show on Earth - Bestival! We know, we know - Dorset might not sound as glam as California's Lollapalooza or Coachella, but believe us, Bestival is one of the most audacious and star-studded music events in Europe. 

From UK festival exclusive headliners, soul divas and sonic heroes to the ‘must see’ acts of 2018, the Lulworth Estate hosts mind-altering music and circus trickery! That's right folks! The bestest festival takes place on over 20 stages and micro-venues in eight unique arenas and features boutique backstage glamping during four glorious English summer days, meaning you've no excuse!

What makes Bestival the Most Colourful Show on Earth?

This year's line up reads like a Who's Who of past, present and future cool. The main stage hosts bad girl M.I.A., even badder girl Grace Jones plus Plan B, London Grammar, Mula Mula, Jorja Smith, Amelie Lens, Chaka Khan, First Aid Kit and legendary dub star Jimmy Cliff.

For those of you who remember the good old days, Bez from Happy Mondays will be rocking his Acid House Party, Goldie will be presenting Metalheadz and even East 17 and Vic Reeves will be rocking da house with their respective Christmas Party and Reggae sets! 

Best of all, Bestival goes far beyond the music, and this year’s circus-themed arcadia is no exception. The array of tableau and temptation also includes Dubstep Dodgems, a Black Light Forest Party, Feast Collective, Free Haircuts, Slam Poetry, Gong Healing, a 5k Campsite Run, Human Ball Pit, Wood Fired Hot Tubs, the WI, the World’s Largest Confetti Cannon & Disco Ball, Fireworks, Loop Sessions, the Love Bot, Rainbow Astronauts, HumanCannonballl and much more. We can't wait to go.... See you there!

  • Head down to England's south coast in the height of summer
  • Camp and listen to headliners, soul divas, sonic heroes and ‘must see’ acts
  • Roll up, roll up to the Most Colourful Show on Earth - Bestival
