Bestival handed top prize at Festival Awards

Isle of Wight event Bestival has been recognised once again by the UK Festival Awards committee, with the popular musical gathering named festival of the year for 2012.

Bestival was previously handed the same accolade in 2010, underlining its good reputation in the UK's music industry.

Curator Rob da Bank was unable to collect the award, but his colleagues were available to accept the award at London's Roundhouse.

Steve Jenner, the Festival Awards co-founder, expressed his pleasure at the "dynamic movements" seen in the UK festival scene over the last few years and congratulated the winners.

"Much more than winning gongs, though, the Festival Awards are about celebrating and uniting the UK festival industry which, in these turbulent times, is more vital than ever," he added.

The four-day music festival, which is known for the outlandish outfits worn by revellers, recently revealed that it will adopt a nautical theme for 2013.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801500419-ADNFCR
