“I can’t wait to play at the Bestival 'cos it's the fest I love the best!” – Norman Cook

The first ever Bestival takes place in Robin Hill, a beautiful 88-acre park of natural woodland, lakes, birds, titchy animals and green things like grass and trees. There are three main music arenas at the Bestival – a Main Stage, a Big Top and the Cocomo Bollywood Cocktail Bar. If you’re feeling more inclined towards the horizontal then don’t despair as there’s also the chilled out Temple Cocktail Bar on hand to provide some welcome relaxation from the madness.
