Bestival nominated for awards

A major annual event held on the Isle of Wight has been nominated for a number of prizes at the UK Festival Awards.

Bestival has been recognised in the categories for Best Major Festival and Best Dance Event.

Shows by The Prodigy and Chase and Status are also up for Best Headline Performance and Virtual Festivals Critics' Choice respectively.

The organisers of the event said: "We are incredibly chuffed and really very proud that Bestival has made it on to the shortlist for Best Major Festival."

It is the first time Bestival, which this year saw performances by Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip and The Flaming Lips, has made it onto the shortlist for the prize.

Bestival's sister event Camp Bestival won nominations for Best Medium-Sized Festival, the Family Festival Award and for Madness' headline slot.

The Telegraph praised the show by The xx following Bestival back in August, which was attended by more than 45,000 revellers.
