Bestival 2017 :: Ones To Watch

The UK festival season is sadly coming to a close, and as the nights draw in, we’re incredibly excited to sign off the summer this weekend (7-10 September) at Bestival.

Bestival has moved to its new home at Lulworth Estate in Dorset, which means no more ferrying to and from The Isle of Wight. While everyone’s busy planning fancy dress for theme of colours, here are the acts we’re raving over other than headliners Justice, The xx, Roots Manuva, The Pet Shop Boys and A Tribe Called Quest.
