Burlesque bill confirmed for Bestival

Fans of burlesque who are planning Isle of Wight holidays to coincide with Bestival this summer are in for a treat, as the line-up of acts performing at the event has been confirmed.

Time For Tease has been a regular feature at the festival for the last five years and sees burlesque shows combined with afternoon tea.

It has entertained around 5,000 revellers every year since it first came to the Isle of Wight in 2007 and it is sure to be a popular part of the Bestival site again next month, with Robin Hill Country Park hosting the festival from September 6th to 9th this year.

"Sit down, get comfortable and indulge with a full spread of tea, sandwiches, scones and cakes whist being entertained by stunning burlesque and cabaret performances," noted the organisers of the Isle of Wight-based event, which brings the summer's festival season to a close.

Dusty Limits, Ophelia Bitz, Chocolat The Extrordinaire, Slinky Sparkles and The Folly Mixtures are among the acts lined up to showcase their talents at Bestival this summer, while others on the bill include Fancy Chance, Kiki Kaboom, Emerald Fontaine, Tallulah Tempest, BettsieBonBon, Ooh La Lou, Bomb Voyage, Hotcake Kitty and Honey Wilde.

Show times start from 13:00 BST each afternoon and run until 18:30 BST, after which the arena will be transformed to get it ready for the evening's activities.

Dr Sketchy's Anti-Art School and Beyond the Cabaret will then be taking over and ensuring revellers are entertained until the early hours of the morning.

Although Bestival is known for being more than just a music festival, the aural delights it has lined up for next month are sure to make it a memorable occasion for attendees.

Headline acts performing at the Isle of Wight bash this year include New Order, Florence and the Machine, Sigur Ros and Stevie Wonder, with The xx and Bat For Lashes also playing.
