Bestival 'one of UK's top ten festivals'

The Isle of Wight's Bestival has been named among the top ten best music festivals in the UK by a national newspaper.

According to Kitty Empire, writing for the Observer, Bestival is still "human size", while the location on the Isle of Wight is "pretty".

She said: "You can meet a fellow undersea creature, get married in the inflatable church, breast-feed in a yurt and still get to hear the electronic flavour-of-the-summer."

Ms Empire added that the music festival's line-up is "eclectic" and pointed out that Bestival's traditional fancy dress theme makes it an attractive destination for festivalgoers.

This year, the event takes place at Robin Hill Country Park near Newport from September 9th-12th 2010, with a fantasy fancy dress theme.

It will be headlined by The Prodigy, with acts such as The Flaming Lips, Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip, Roxy Music and LCD Soundsystem also set to play the bash, which is one of the last music festivals of the summer. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19767282-ADNFCR
