Bestival line-up is 'loud and imaginative'

This year's line-up at Isle of Wight-based music festival Bestival has been described as "loud and imaginative" by a national newspaper.

The Times noted that it is not just the famous fancy dress heritage of Bestival that makes it stand out to festivalgoers.

It said: "The music is as loud and imaginative as the costumes: the Prodigy, Gil Scott Heron, LCD Soundsystem and an eagerly awaited show by the disco icons Chic."

This year, people taking Isle of Wight holidays to coincide with the Rob da Bank-curated event have been asked to come in fancy dress with a fantasy theme.

This could lead to attendees of the event turning up in garb imitating characters such as Captain Jack Sparrow from the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Harry Potter or the likes of Anakin Skywalker and Yoda from Star Wars.

Bestival takes place at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight from September 9th-12th 2010 and stars acts such as Roxy Music, Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip and The Flaming Lips.ADNFCR-3083-ID-19752845-ADNFCR
