We’re just three weeks away from the first ever mid-summer Bestival and due to huge demand, we have put a limited number of day tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday on sale. Bursting with eye-popping wonder, mind melting stages, must-see destinations, off-the-wall amusements and amazing circus trickery, now you can take your pick of three days of incredible music and good times, this August.
Rob da Bank says “So many mates, random people in the streets and Bestival fans online have been asking if it’s possible to do day tickets for years, and now that we have a much easier site to access we’re finally able to bring that to life. We still believe that Bestival is best experienced as a three or four-day knees-up but if you can only come for a day or two now’s your chance!”
Friday 3rd August sees the opening of the castle stage and the first ever UK performance of Diplo & Mark Ronson’s Silk City. A UK festival exclusive, Silk City are the hottest dancefloor act on the planet right now, and this is your chance to catch a bit of history.
As if that wasn’t enough, we also have essential performances from Mura Masa, Bicep (DJ set), Sundara Karma, IAMDDB, Django Django, IDLES and lots more. Bass bin pressure comes from the likes of Metalheadz, DF Tram, Mabel, Lotto Boyzz, Not3s, Kojo Funds, and more. And tongue-in-cheek fun comes courtesy of Jodie Harsh & Friends and Sink the Pink presents Ta’Dah!
Saturday 4th August sees yet another UK festival exclusive headline set, this time from London Grammar. The Notts trio have worked their way up the ranks and deservedly command Saturday’s headline spot, don’t miss something special!

We go head to head with Oasis festival featuring Amelie Lens, and more, Ram Jam ups the sound system ante, a Madchester dance icon throws Bez’s Acid House Party and we have a reggae set from the one and only Vic Reeves, among many other marvels throughout the day.
