Voyage further still from one woodland to another, Aespia Festival’s 24hr world of interactive art and escapism will manifest at Bestival. With paints, sponges, glitter and art secrets, all bursting from their tour bus, their mission is to encourage everyone to release their inner artists; to connect and to heal through participation, play and collaboration. In true Aespia spirit, they’ll bring creativity, celebration and – most importantly – colour, through a delicious concoction of installations, paintings, sculptures, performances, music, poetry and workshops. Join the dappled joys of mind-blowing paint parties and cover canvases, trees and even your mates in paint. Enter the giant three-dimensional canvas and explore, adapt and enjoy.
One of Bestival’s most cherished institutions, Pig’s Big Record Club is a hip-swinging palace of rare delights. Tucked away in Ambientland and featuring an array of vintage sonics, gramophone greats from ragtime to rock n roll and exhilaratingly unusual live acts, it’s a mind-expanding gateway to a whole world of incredible music waiting to be discovered.

Find your way through the woods to discover some late-night revelry in the twinkly barn at the end of the woodland, which descends into the early hours with DJ’s and some unexpected fun to be had.
At the back of the woodland you’ll find the Crafty Cabin! A place to grab a drink and get stuck into the workshops on offer, from Tie Dye mayhem to postcard making to jewellery making sessions you’ll be able to while the day away in this awesome space.
Always a warm welcome and a kettle simmering on the fire. The Magic Teapot is a space for stories, conversations, songs and gathering new friends over a cuppa around a cosy fire, whatever the weather. The cosiest and friendliest of festival venues.
