On the latest additions Rob da Bank commented, "I love all the music at Bestival, (obviously!) but one of the things I get most excited about every year is all the wildness and magical stuff you just fall into without realising what’s happening. We’ve got some top notch line-ups for Club Dada, all the mad Polka stuff in the lovely Travelling Barn and Pig’s Big Ballroom action that will make you dance all night long, so be sure to check them out. And keep on exploring – you never know what you might find."
