Bestival handed second award

Rob da Bank's Isle of Wight-based music event Bestival has been handed its second award of the last few weeks, beating off stiff competition to pick up the Best UK Festival Award at the Artrocker Awards in Hoxton, London.

This follows the news that the UK Festival Awards committee also named Bestival its favourite festival of 2012.

Katy Emami, head of press at Bestival, collected the honour on behalf of the team behind it, reports the Isle of Wight Country Press.

Rob da Bank told the newspaper: "Wow! This has been some year for us and so chuffed to get the award from Artrocker to round it all off. I've asked for a new mantelpiece for Christmas!"

The 2012 lineup of the popular festival included performances from Stevie Wonder, Florence and the Machine, New Order, the XX and Friendly Fires, with DJ sets from Annie Mac and Four Tet also impressing the Isle of Wight crowd.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801504750-ADNFCR
