Close the summer festival season in style at Bestival


Pull on the fancy dress and douse yourself in glitter as Bestival brings the party to the stately Lulworth Estate.

Every September, this UK festival highlight sends off summer with an eccentric English bang in the Dorset countryside.

Where else can you order cocktails and dance to live rock ‘n’ roll in woodland, dance around a laser-spewing temple and see the world’s largest disco ball? And we haven’t even mentioned the annual fancy dress theme yet – in 2010 they won the Guinness World Record for the most people in fancy dress at one event.

If you are looking for an eclectic mix of music, cabaret and outlandish entertainment then this is the 2018 festival for you.

This year's line-up includes M.I.A, London Grammar, Grace Jones, First Aid Kit, Thundercat and Chaka Khan.

Bestival takes place from 2-5 August.
