Colour Field

A curious new world of dance and colour. Featuring Bestival’s beating heart, Bollywood and our brand-new dance nirvana Temple, these peculiar polychromatic pastures are also home to our latest eccentric innovation The World’s Biggest Confetti Cannon…



The last word in next level partying, Temple is Bestival’s hands in the air nirvana. Featuring the cream of the club scene manning the decks, hi-tech lasers, astonishing aerial displays and properly insane pyrotechnics will take the crowd to the very edge of heaven. With state of the art sound invocations, expect a jam-packed weekend of floor spanking brilliance at our church of dance.



The Bollywood Tent has been a Bestival institution since our very first event in 2004, the brainchild of Bestival Creative Director Josie da Bank and her best mate Natasha Hill. It’s remained many people’s favourite arena over the years – the gloriously colourful hand-stitched tent serving the finest cocktails in the land is the venue that DJs request to play in year on year, even after they have outgrown the capacity of the tent itself (hello Disclosure, Chase & Status, Fatboy Slim…).

Complete with a massive Temple entranceway plus loads of Indian day beds and parasols outside and fresh decor inside it really does look AMAZING!!



We don’t do things by halves at Bestival. If we do a fancy-dress party, it’s going to be the biggest, if we make a disco ball it’s going to be a record breaker. So, naturally, when we decided we wanted a confetti cannon to shower us all in incandescent colour, well, you know the rest. So, welcome one an all to the World’s Biggest Confetti Cannon, getting the party started at Temple stage each day. Don’t miss its explosive joy…
