What happened at Bestival… can’t just stay at Bestival. Not when it’s as spendidly sparkly, crazily costumed and blastingly beat-filled as this. So here are ELLE’s favourite moments from last weekend’s fest – just in time for the super-early-bird ticket sale for 2016, on now at bestival.netMore
Give Bestival-goers a theme, and boy do they run with it. This year, the fancy dress was all about the Summer of Love – cue fields full of flares, round specs and ensembles psychedelic enough to make Austin Powers look understated. Tie-dye clad hippies in front of a 30-foot toy robot? Sure. Conga-line of human Love Heart sweets (geddit?) circling the world’s biggest glitter ball? Why not. This is Bestival, maaaan.
THE UNLIKELY HERO
Picture it: a tent full of hardened festival-goers, uber-aloof hipsters and the odd John Lennon lookalike (well, it IS the Summer of Love). When, suddenly – ‘Re-rewind, when the crowd says bo selecta!’ And with that, the place goes absolutely, positively BANANAS. Because there is no one too cool to resist the power of Craig David.
