Bestival Announces Site Move
After thirteen successful years at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight, Bestival curator Rob da Bank has announced that the four-day festival may move to the Lulworth Estate in Dorset. Rob da Bank and team have applied for a licence with comprehensive plans to Purbeck Council, which has entered a twenty-eight day consultation period.
The plan is to hold Bestival on the same site as its sister show, Camp Bestival, the family-orientated sibling of the Isle of Wight event. This morning on social media Rob da Bank said, “Hot off the press – yes Bestival is moving! We can confirm we have submitted a licence application for a new site at the Lulworth Estate in Dorset and we’re super excited about our shiny new Bestival adventure. We have an incredible line-up, headliners confirmed and ridiculous new stages and installations coming your way in 2017”.
With Camp Bestival celebrating the big one-zero at Lulworth next July, organisers are confident that the long standing relationship with Dorset will help the mammoth task of moving sites as non-disruptive as possible, and something that will benefit both the event and festival-goers for the long term! The inSYNC team is looking forward to seeing what Bestival do at their new home.
