Bestival Changes Festival Dates

Bestival organisers have announced plans to hold the event one month earlier from 2018.

The promoters say that the new dates are in response to customer feedback. The festival will now be held from August 2-5. It was previously held in September.

In 2017 the festival relocated from the Isle Of Wight to the Lulworth Estate in Dorset. Bestival will be held the weekend after it’s sister event Camp Bestival on the same site. Camp Bestival will be held July 26 – 29.

Meanwhile, Bestival has announced its 2018 theme celebrating 250 years of Circus. Ringmaster and festival boss Rob da Bank says“Yes fellow Bestivalites it’s time to run away and join the Circus, Bestival style! Bearded freaks, insane acrobats, high wire daredevils, mutant jugglers and an out of control ringmaster all eager for you to join the most colourful show on earth await! And what makes this show even more unmissable is we have moved into peak season August style and will be open a month earlier than usual… so what are you waiting for?”
