Entering it's tenth year, Bestival has risen through the ranks and now comfortably sits alongside the biggest festival in the country and beyond. The four day festival is curated by none other than DJ, record producer and radio 1 hero Rob Da Bank and this years features a stunning lineup, arguably the best the country has to offer this year.
Topping the bill this year, UK pop legend Elton John brings his band to Robin Hill Country Park, Isle Of White for an exclusive UK festival performance alongside fellow headliners; Snoop Dogg and Fat Boy Slim (Norman Cook returning to the festival after playing at the very first Bestival a decade ago).
