Bestival Block Party to take place on Isle of Wight

Revellers heading out on their Isle of Wight holidays later this summer can attend a Bestival Block Party during their time at the event.

Bestival takes place at Robin Hill Country Park every September but it will be the first time the parade has been held as part of the festivities.

Curator of the bash Rob da Bank explained that the carnival procession will be designed by the people heading to the event and added it is one of the parts of Bestival he is most looking forward to this year.

Each block of the parade will have a vehicle, bands and a performer, while attendees will decide the design and name of it.

Ways to enter will be revealed by the organisers of the Isle of Wight-based festival in a few weeks.

Headline acts taking to the stage at Bestival this summer include Primal Scream, Brian Wilson, Pendulum, PJ Harvey, DJ Shadow and The Cure.
