Newport, Isle of Wight
Bestival celebrates its 10th Birthday in 2013, with two huge acts headlining; Snoop Dogg on the Saturday and Elton John on the Sunday.
This self-described 'boutique music festival' takes place over three days on the Isle of Wight, at the Robin Hill Country Park near Newport.
Set up by leftfield Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank and held each September, it focuses on pioneering music and on discovery, from its Bollywood Cocktail Bar, mass fancy dress party and Hidden Disco to its 'boutique campsite' with bivouacs, tipis, yurts and Podpads.
Bestival won an award for Best Major Festival in 2012, and along with the 10th anniversary celebration plans, tickets are selling fast and anticipation for the event is high.
