Bestival - which takes place this coming weekend (Friday 9th to Sunday 11th September) at Robin Hill Countryside Adventure Park, on the Isle of Wight - has announced that it's to show the last test of the Ashes series on a big screen courtesy of Channel 4.

But perhaps they're being a little too hopeful. Whereas the weather forecast was looking great a few days back, Saturday now has some rain forecast, meaning that the cricket - but not Bestival - could be rained off.

Music at Bestival comes from acts including The Magic Numbers, Mylo, Dreadzone, Röyksopp, 2 Many DJs, Tom Vek, Super Furry Animals, The Go! Team, Lee 'Scratch' Perry, The Egg, Emiliana Torrini, British Sea Power, Fabio, Grooverider, and loads more - click here for the full details. As well as the music, Saturday night sees an attempt for the Guinness World Record for the biggest fancy dress party in the world. The theme is loosely Cowboys and Indians – go on, do it!

There are just a few tickets left now, so if you want one, get it quick! Tickets are priced at £89 for the weekend - click here to buy.
