Share This Article:

The four-day boutique music festival returns to Dorset’s Jurassic Coast for another fantastic year. 

Previously taking place on the Isle of Wight, Bestival returns to its new home in an enchanting woodland estate in Dorset for a second year. Birthed by Rob and Josie da Bank, Bestival is a celebration of the weird, the wonderful and the downright majestic.

Still growing into its new surroundings, Bestival 2018 will see the transcendent, soul-soothing Ambient Stage, nestled into a natural leafy canopy, playing groovy tracks to keep you bopping until morning. Jump headfirst into the main artery of the festival at Cuckoo Clump, featuring delights like the world’s largest disco ball, a new funk and soul club, record shops and the LoveBot. Designated spots for rest and re-coop, Slow Motion and The Lawn, will offer group yoga, massages, delicious food, and sweet calming beats.

Accompanying the eclectic mix of entertainment is a stellar line-up. The Castle Stage will host names such as London Grammar, Mura Masa, Plan B, Gentleman’s Dub Club and Chaka Khan. Over at the Big Top stage, there will be huge sets from Jorja Smith, Kelela and Django Django. Taking to the decks across the Temple and HMS Bestival stages are a host of world-class DJs, with Rudimental, Flava D and Stanton Warriors to name but a few.

Bestival will take place between Thursday 2nd August and Sunday 5th August at The Lulworth Estate in Dorset, with student weekend tickets selling for £150.
