Last year's theme was HMS Bestival, this year's theme follows a narrative with Bestival having sailed into uncharted waters, picking up rebels, misfits, artists and prophets, before beaching upon the warm sands of a tropical paradise with a stone temple in a clearing, and teems of bamboo and palm roofed shacks with a giant disco ball at their centre, this year Bestival becomes a Desert Island Disco.
