Franz Ferdinand (crowd)

Bestival has a huge variety of stages, from the big open main stage to large tents, outdoor dance areas, covered bars, to spiegeltents, and bandstands.

There are sixteen or so listed in the programme, and a few more random ones dotted about the site. It's worth exploring at night to find some of the wackier/cooler ones.

The music policy is fairly varied although most have dance roots, and there's plenty of DJs, the most lively areas at night tend to have the bigger name acts, and there's also comedy, spoken work, burlesque, cabaret, and more.
