Bestival talent show winners announced

Isle of Wight acts have won a spot on the Bestival bill after being picked as the winners of an annual talent show.

Southern Big Man were named as the best band of the event - which was held at Northwood House - while the DJ prize went to The March Hare.

Both will now be added to the line-up of the Isle of Wight-based festival, which will take place at Robin Hill Country Park in September.

Bestival curator Rob da Bank led the judging panel, which also included Mark King of Level 42 and Ross Findon from the Isle of Wight County Press.

Rock act Southern Big Man and DJ The March Hare will now have the chance to impress music lovers at Bestival on the Isle of Wight later in the summer.

They join a wide array of acts on the bill of the event, which is set to be headlined by Stevie Wonder, Sigur Ros and New Order.
