Bestival 'is an artistic and copiously decorated site'

Isle of Wight festival Bestival has been described as having an artistic and copiously decorated site.

According to student newspaper for the University of York Nouse, although Bestival is often thought of as a major electronic music event, there is more to it than that.

"You merely have to glance at their website to understand that the organisers are clearly very preoccupied with how things look," noted the report.

It explained that the way some performances are staged at summer music events can also have a major impact on the experience of the attendees.

Nouse cited shows from acts such as Arcade Fire or Massive Attack that have been lit up through clever uses of staging and design.

Bestival ticketholders are likely to be looking forward to seeing what headline band The Cure has planned for their gig on the Isle of Wight, which is their only festival concert in Europe scheduled this summer.
