Underground Restaurant coming to Bestival

Revellers getting ready to head out on their Isle of Wight holidays next weekend (from September 8th) in order to attend Bestival have been urged to check out an Underground Restaurant during the event.

Bookings are now being taken for the venue, which has already been a success at a variety of UK festivals this summer, including the smaller, mainland-based Camp Bestival in Dorset.

The restaurant is the brainwave of Kerstin Rodgers and a number of special events will be held over the weekend for those who choose to have a meal there during Bestival.

On the Saturday night (September 10th), a pyjama party will be hosted at the eatery, with attendees encouraged to dress up suitably for the occasion.

"Wear jim jams, nighties, bring teddies, hot water bottles, dressing-gowns, comfy slippers, hair rollers, your pet blanket and have a secret feast under the cover of a supper club," urged the organisers.

Sessions are being timed so they do not clash with the headline bands at Bestival, so those on their Isle of Wight holidays to attend the music festival will not miss their favourite acts.

"I always loved food, spent most of my income on ingredients," says Ms Rodgers, who is known by her alias - food blogger MsMarmitelover - and previously worked as a photographer for NME.

"It was a natural progression from photography to cooking. Anyway, food is the new rock n roll."

Attendees do not have to book in groups, as even if they want to go on their own they will be seated by the organisers with other diners.

This year, Bestival boasts an impressive line-up, headed by exclusive European booking The Cure, who have chosen the Isle of Wight bash for their only show on the continent this year.

Also on the bill for the festival are Pendulum, PJ Harvey, Brian Wilson, The Maccabees, Primal Scream, Robyn and The Village People.
