Bollywood tent confirmed for Bestival 2012

Music lovers getting ready to head to the Isle of Wight for this year's Bestival event will be able to dance the night away at a special Bollywood tent that is being constructed for the festival.

Bestival has hosted the Bollywood tent since 2004 and it is among the most popular parts of the festival site, with the 2012 event set to take place from September 6th to 9th at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight.

The organisers of the feature noted it was the idea of creative director Josie da Bank and her friend Natasha Hill and over the course of the last eight years, it has grown.

"It's remained many people’s favourite arena over the years - this is the venue that DJs request to play in year on year, even after they have outgrown the capacity of the tent itself," commented those behind the event, noting Fatboy Slim is one of the stars to have done this in recent years.

A new design is being worked on for the Bollywood tent in 2012 and it is sure to be on the list of must-see venues for those travelling to the Isle of Wight for the festival in under a month's time.

It was noted by the organisers that a massive Temple entranceway is going to be new for the location in 2012 and a new Indian-themed Cocktail Bus is going to be placed in front of it.

They added that "loads of new Indian day beds and parasols" are going to be added outside the tent, while there will also be fresh decor inside.

Bestival on the Isle of Wight boasts an impressive line-up of bands this year, with the headline acts set to take to the stage including Stevie Wonder, Florence and the Machine, New Order, The xx, Bat For Lashes and Sigur Ros.
