Bestival: one of the daddies of the British festival calender.
And, as you’d expect with a status like Bestival’s, it’s now sold out. FACT, however, are offering one reader the chance to win a pair of passes for this year’s edition, which takes place on the Isle of Wight from September 6 to September 9. The line-up is, as ever, pretty massive, but here’s a small selection of names that should whet your appetite: Stevie Wonder, New Order, the xx, Florence + The Machine, Bat for Lashes, Hot Chip, Azealia Banks, Four Tet b2b Caribou, Krystal Klear, Pangaea. And that’s a small, small selection – you can browse the whole line-up here.
This competition comes courtesy of our friends at Rizlab, whose stage – a collaboration with Ninja Tune and Big Dada – features the mighty JJ DOOM, Sheffield soldier Toddla T, Actress, Coldcut, Raf Daddy, Scuba, Roots Manuva, Bonobo, Sticky and more. So if you are that lucky winner, you know who to hold out your lighter for.
To enter, simply drop us an email on email@example.com with the subject line ‘Bestival’. The winner will be informed tomorrow at 6pm.
