Bestival preview

Besitval is a there day music festival in Dorset. 

It's just three weeks away from the first ever mid-summer Bestival and due to huge demand, the festival have put a limited number of day tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday on sale. Bursting with eye-popping wonder, mind melting stages, must-see destinations, off-the-wall amusements and amazing circus trickery, now you can take your pick of three days of incredible music and good times, this August.

Rob da Bank, event organiser, says “So many mates, random people in the streets and Bestival fans online have been asking if it’s possible to do day tickets for years, and now that we have a much easier site to access we’re finally able to bring that to life. We still believe that Bestival is best experienced as a three or four-day knees-up but if you can only come for a day or two now’s your chance!”
