    Sorry, didn't realise that this has become the new Camp Bestival forum. That will have headliners!
  2. The diversity of the lineup (both in terms of genres and size of acts), the sense of humour and magic, the good-natured crowd.
  3. ... then can anyone recommend a good alternative? I know it's hard, especially after ruling out Boomtown (I can never get away that particular weekend in August) and Glastonbury (failed to get a ticket). I'll be going to a few city-based festivals next year, but it wouldn't be a summer without at least one camping weekender.
  4. Surely the nautical projections and subsequent fireworks would've been used at Camp Bestival, but because their Sunday was cancelled, we got them (slightly modified) as a bonus instead!
  5. I think your problem there is that it's not called Caravanasia! It's called Caravanserai.
  6. I thought the lineup was pretty thin and underwhelming on paper, but it turned out that I was never short of things to do the whole weekend. I thought the new site layout and this year's selection of stages was well thought-out, stage sound was all good, the daytime heat was too much, which meant that the front of the main stage was quite empty as everyone hid further back underneath trees, but what can you do about that? Most importantly, the crowd was one of the happiest and loveliest I've seen at Bestival in a while. I had a fantastic four days and it made me feel a lot younger than my 42 old man's years!
  7. Because of high winds I think; the ground doesn't look bad at all from the photos I've seen. And not opening the arena at all today can only be good for us next weekend!
  8. £97 each - bargain of the summer!
  9. Catfish and the Bottlemen and the Libertines are both total dogshit though. I'd be ashamed to tell anyone I was going to Bestival if they were the headliners.
  10. Jack Ü = Diplo's collaboration with Skrillex from about three years ago. It was pretty huge.
  11. What's that in reference to? Anyway, Bestival have just tweeted, "it’s a top secret project to be revealed soon…", so I imagine there's significantly more to Silk City than just Diplo & Ronson on their laptops....
  12. Well I'm a big fan of Diplo's sets, so that's cool. However, last time Mark Ronson did a B2B DJ set on the Bestival main stage, he killed the vibe every time it was his turn, by playing something really obvious and dull.
  13. That's a big assumption, but if it is, then it looks like it might be a name made up of 2 x 4 letters, possibly one of the words being 3 letters if there's an H, M or W in there. What it looks most like, apart from the fact that the top of the second letter looks flat, is SOFT CELL. Which would be a coup, especially given that their O2 show was announced as "the band’s ONLY and last EVER show". Surprisingly that show isn't yet sold out though, and they don't strike me as a crowd-puller for people who do festivals (though, being 42, I'd definitely go see them). Anyway, the first letter under that black bar is a C, G or S. The second is probably E, I or T. The first letter you can see on the right-hand side is C, J or S. And I think the last letter is A, E, F, M, L, P R or Y. But it's probably just a bunch of random letters that don't mean anything.
  14. Well, he's booked the NPG for both Common People festivals. It'd definitely be nice to see them at Bestival though.
