Bestival, now held at Lulworth Castle in Dorset, has announced a move of date, from it's traditional time in early September, to now take place on the first weekend of August, from Thursday 2nd until Sunday 5th August 2018.

Also announced today is the fancy-dress theme, of Circus. Roll up roll up! Yes fellow Bestivalites it’s time to run away and join the Circus Bestival style! Bearded freaks, insane acrobats, high wire daredevils, mutant jugglers and an out of control ringmaster all eager for you to join The Most Colourful Show On Earth await! And what makes this show even more unmissable is we have moved into peak season August style and will be open a month earlier than usual… so what are you waiting for?”says Ringmaster extraordinaire Rob da Bank.

And finally, ticket news. Early bird tickets for Bestival 2018 will go on sale at 10am on Monday 6th November priced at £149.
