Bestival staying on Isle of Wight, organiser confirms

Rumours have been floating around that Bestival may move from the Isle of Wight next year.

However, organiser Rob da Bank has moved to quell any fears fans may have that the music festival could be moving from its home on the island.

"Robin Hill [Country Park, the event's base] and the Isle of Wight have always been great supporters of Bestival and we have no plans to move our festival home," he told local news provider VentnorBlog.

Since forming Bestival, da Bank has gone on to found a sister event - Camp Bestival - which is a smaller festival that takes place each summer at Lulworth Castle in Dorset.

This year, Bestival is headlined by The Prodigy, Dizzee Rascal and The Flaming Lips and will be held from September 9th to 12th.

Other bands on the bill music fans heading to the Isle of Wight for the event may be looking forward to seeing are likely to include Hot Chip, Roxy Music, The Wailers and Simian Mobile Disco.
