Coverage of this weekend's future themed Bestival will be appearing on Red Bull TV who will be live at Bestival, broadcasting selected artists and all behind the scenes action at redbull.tv/bestival.
The stream begins on Friday at 7pm and when that day finishes, it will automatically replay the action until the feed goes live again on the Saturday evening, so viewers will always have video content to watch and there will be two channels to flick between.
When the festival ends on Sunday, they will continue to have replay of Sunday’s stream on the Monday.
A statement from organisers states, "As part of their Season of Festivals, Red Bull TV will be broadcasting from Bestival - giving viewers at home the chance to hurtle headlong into the good times with Bestival's future themed extravaganza. The broadcast stream offers users the choice of two channels, showcasing artists from a number of stages. After each broadcast, the player will continue to replay until live again. Presented by Will Best and Hannah Rad, Red Bull TV will bring festival fans some of the greatest music, behind the scenes gossip and all the happenings across the weekend."
As well as the live stream, they will also have certain artist tracks as VOD performances. Please note, they may not have all the headline acts, it will be very dependent on label permissions etc, and that they don’t start broadcasting until Friday evening.
Acts confirmed to be broadcast include Major Lazer, Odesza, Kano, Ride, Lady Leshurr, Benjie B, Tourist, Creeper, Black Honey, Anne-Marie, Will Varley, Xylaroo, Benjamin Damage, Milk Teeth, The Wytches, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Hinds, Royce Wood Junior, Pup, Fickle Friends, This Is The Kit, New Desert Blues, Honne, Wstrn, Nocturne, and Riton.
