It is a very sad day for the Isle of Wight as it has been announced that Bestival will be leaving it’s home at Robin Hill Country Park to relocate to Lulworth Estate in Dorset for 2017 where Bestival already host their sister event Camp Bestival.
Bestival has been held on the Isle of Wight for the past 13 years, winning multi-awards for it’s unique design and boutique concepts. Curator Rob Da Bank said “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.” Rob Da Bank and his team have pledged to remain committed to supporting the Island through his charity connections and music stating “we’re working towards a new event for the Island. Watch this space…”
So hopefully as we wave bye bye to Bestival, we say hello to something equally as exciting and adventurous on the Isle of Wight.
