This year Bestival are adding on a £1 charity donation onto all Bestival tickets. The money raised will go directly to the Isle Of Wight Youth Trust (Reg Charity no. 1087163) to help fund their work offering counselling and support to young people aged 25 and under on the Isle of Wight. The Bestival Foundation is also a proud supporter of the Youth Trust.

Payment plan

There's also a 24 week payment plan which means that an adult ticket can now be bought at a payment of £19.05 per week .

Once ticket buyers have signed up to the payment plan, which basically means giving your agreement by ticking the bank mandate form on Ticketline's website, Bestival will automatically debit your card on a weekly basis. NB: Booking fees will be charged with your initial transaction.

Terms and conditions

Bestival has rules for those attending with teens. Ticket buyers are asked to note that adult tickets can only be used by persons age 18 or over. Teen tickets can only be purchased by persons over the age of 30. Purchasers of a child ticket or a teen ticket must be either the parent or legal guardian of the teen or child for whom the ticket is purchased. Child and teen ticket holders can only enter the festival with the person who purchased their ticket i.e. their parent or legal guardian.

Any Teen ticket holders attempting to enter the festival without this person will be denied entry to the festival. For safety reasons, any persons attempting to enter the festival with a Child Ticket holder that they are not the parent or legal guardian will be denied entry. Each adult attending can accompany up to a maximum of 2 Teen Ticket holders. Teen ticket holders must camp in the same location as their families and are not allowed in the arena field unaccompanied after 10pm. Teen ticket holders must be accompanied by their parent/guardian at all times after 10pm. Child ticket holders are not allowed in the arena or campsites unaccompanied at any time.

On site

As well as the music, Bestival has the world's biggest fancy dress party for 80,000 festival goers - Bestival offers cocktail bars, laughter clubs, a farmers market, kids area, morris dancing, magical moments and more, as one of the most colourful events on the festival calendar.

Disabled info

Bestival's organisers are committed to making the festival as accessible as possible and great efforts are being been made to achieve this. However, Bestival is an outdoor event in a Country Park and on farm land that is predominantly positioned at the bottom of a valley between two hills that rise fairly steeply, and as such it will present challenges for wheelchair users and those with serious mobility issues. However, with a little help here and there it is manageable and Bestival provide free tickets for carers to this end. Carers can apply for a free carers ticket and a disabled pass. The Disabled Camping Area is positioned near to the main Robin Hill entrance. Vehicles with a blue badge (or similar) can park in the disabled camping area. It is about 5 minutes from here to the main arena but it should be noted that this journey will be downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back. There are charging points for electric wheelchairs available upon request and disabled toilets onsite. Contact the organisers if you have further questions.

Ferry returns

For those leaving the island by ferry please arrive no earlier than 1 hour before your departure time on Monday.
