Isle of Wight's Bestival scoops award

A popular event held on the Isle of Wight has been named the best major festival at a prestigious awards ceremony.

Bestival landed the gong at the UK Festival Awards, which was held yesterday (November 18th 2010) at the Indigo2 in London.

The Robin Hill Country Park-based music event beat established names such as Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds and the Isle of Wight Festival to clinch the title.

Radio One DJ Rob da Bank, who is behind the event, was delighted with the recognition after Bestival added to its previous best medium-sized festival accolades.

"It's a testament to all our beautiful Bestivalites who voted for us that we beat some mega competition. Thanks to all who voted," he remarked.

Last year's Bestival was headlined by acts including The Flaming Lips, Dizzee Rascal, The Prodigy and Hot Chip, while the event will be returning to the Isle of Wight next September.
