As we’ve mentioned before in this series of previews, this year is Bestival’s 10th Birthday. And they’ve managed to book a pretty impressive mix of headline acts for your delectation over the four days.
Double Digits is a special Birthday. We all remember ours I’m sure. This year, Bestival is certainly going to make an impression on your memory. So down to details then. Lets start off on friday night with say, the worlds first and greatest ever superstar DJ – Fatboy Slim. Playing an exclusive set titled ‘Fatboy Slim’s Bestival Birthday Bash’, Norman Cook has promised “very special surprises”.
Speaking of his headline performance and Bestival’s birthday, Fatboy Slim says:
It was at Glastonbury 2003 where I closed the Sunday Best stage for Rob da Bank that I first saw the glint in his eye to create his own festival. 12 months later I was headlining Bestival and TEN years on, here I am again, throwing them the biggest birthday bash possible and sharing the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg.
And the host of the party Rob da Bank had this to say:
I still can’t believe Bestival is gonna be ten… but it is and that’s great cos it means we get to go even more mental with our onsite creations and general madness. We wanted to have a big moment for all our amazing crew and the beautiful Bestivalites whether they’ve been with us for the last decade or even just this year so we went back to one of our headliners from the first year and someone who’s supported us since our early days in clubland. Yes ladies and gents, boys and girls roll up roll up for what will be the biggest spectacle in UK festival land as we unveil Fatboy Slim’s Bestival Birthday Bash.
