Bestival boss recommends volunteering

Those who wish to attend sold-out music event Bestival on the Isle of Wight later this summer have been advised to consider volunteering to work at the bash.

Music fans could offer to work at the music festival in exchange for a free ticket for the event.

The festival's curator and founder Rob da Bank told the Telegraph: "You could apply to be a steward for Oxfam, who not only do both our shows - Camp Bestival and Bestival - but have thousands of volunteers at Glastonbury, too."

Bestival attendees who are looking to save money ahead of their trip to the Isle of Wight for the event were also advised to take their own alcohol into the site.

However, the Telegraph reminded festivalgoers to decant any booze from glass bottles into plastic ones to avoid it being confiscated.

This year, Bestival is headlined by The Prodigy and The Flaming Lips and is held at Robin Hill Country Park from September 9th-12th 2010.
