Bestival capacity raised to 80,000

One of the biggest annual music events in the UK, Bestival is set to be bigger and better than ever this year, as the organisers have successfully campaigned to raise the capacity of the event to 80,000.

Councillor Jonathan Bacon, the cabinet member for planning and regulatory matters at the local council, said the motion was carried without a full hearing as "all the representations made were responded to leaving no outstanding issue".

Taking place on the Isle of Wight from September 5th to 8th, this year's showpiece will feature a massive array of some of the most popular music acts from across the globe.

Indeed, artists do not come bigger than Sir Elton John, who will be rocking the crowds as a headliner on the Sunday evening.

Other groups performing at this year's Bestival include Snoop Dogg, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Roots, MIA and many more.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801614202-ADNFCR
