HMS BESTIVAL

While cast adrift on tropical waves HMS Bestival, the ultimate oceanic party venue, has been commandeered by a fearless tribe of glamazonian babes on a touchy-feely mission. Now making her triumphant return from homoerotic voyages on saucy seas, you are gladly received aboard the finest gay cruise liner anywhere between here and the Costa Smeralda…

Be you sailor boy, mermaid or salty old sea dog, this is the glitter-strewn party to keep you high on the seas from noon until… well… noon

Weigh anchor!

THE LOVE-BOT

The Love-Bot helps to get the good vibes flowing across The Lulworth Estate. A colossal cyber-softy, the Love-Bot is a sleeping beauty that needs your love for his energy. Without it he rests in limbo, full of woe, as his joints gradually rust together and his internal batteries slowly run down… all he needs to come alive is someone to show him some love!

Standing eight metres tall and weighing in at a cuddly four tonnes, our bionic beauty uses love-detectors to sense affection and converts your positive emotions into an amorous display that will spread love and joy to one and all.

REGGAE ROOTS

The Reggae Roots stage is dedicated to the myriad flavours of reggae, from ska, rock steady and ragga to dub, dancehall and junglist riddims. Located on its own sandy beach in the Pigeon Clump and bathed in righteous vibrations, awaken your inner lion, as a cast of cool operators make sweet selections without objection. From high energy rockers, to waist-winding crowd pleasers, there are no heavy manners; Reggae Roots is irie ground.

Club Dada

Welcome to a surreal world of Club DaDa where the absurd is commonplace and eccentricity is elevated to an art form. Prepare for a disorienting salmagundi of sound, the mechanised swing of vintage remix and brass, brass, brass. Irresistibly avant-garde and unhinged, Club DaDa, from the makers of Shangri Las, Glastonbury, and long term residents of festival fields Continental Drifts will send you spinning into the 23rd Century.

Stacey's

At Stacey’s it’s not just about the looks, it’s about the lifestyle. It’s about the joyous funk, and the rare groove and it’s about the dancing. The non-stop dancing, lost in the soul and the pure pursuit of happiness. The ultimate good time clubbing experience, if dancing to northern soul, funk and rare groove is what you want to do, Stacey’s is for you.
