Bestival travel plans unveiled

The Isle of Wight Council has unveiled travel plans for Bestival, which is being held at Robin Hill Country Park on the island next weekend.

Bands such as Sigur Ros and Florence and the Machine will be performing at the event, while tens of thousands of revellers are expected to travel to the Isle of Wight in the coming days.

Organisers announced that plans are in place to meet the extra demand expected over the course of the coming few days.

"Council staff will be at key locations and patrolling designated routes and surrounding areas to marshal traffic and provide advice to motorists if necessary," it was noted by the Isle of Wight Council.

Bestival marks the end of the summer festival season in the UK, with acts set to perform at the event over the course of next weekend including headliners New Order and Stevie Wonder.
