Bestival’s ground breaking weekly payment plan means you can get yourself a Bestival 2016 ticket for just £41 a week! Spreading the cost across 5 weeks, an initial £25 deposit payment (plus booking fees and p&p), followed by 4 weekly payments of around £41, gets you a ticket for the same price as paying in one go.

This offer is only available online from our official ticket partner Ticketline

Isle of Wight Youth Trust Charity Donation


*Once again this year we are adding on a £1 charity donation onto all Bestival tickets. The money raised will go directly to the Isle Of Wight Youth Trust (Reg Charity no. 1087163) to help fund their fantastic work offering counselling and support to young people aged 25 and under on the Isle of Wight. The Bestival Foundation is also a proud supporter of the Youth Trust.

Eileen Monks OBE, Director of the Youth Trust: “The Isle of Wight Youth Trust is so lucky to have the fantastic support of the Bestival team and by donating £1 you will be helping vulnerable children and young people on the Isle of Wight. The Youth Trust provides counselling to children and young people and, through your generosity, we will be able to offer help to more people, as well as being able to develop other services to those who need them. Thank you for your support and we hope you have an amazing time at Bestival this year.”

Rob da Bank: “Ever since we first crossed the sea and set foot on the Isle of Wight the Youth Trust has been an integral part of Bestival. Eileen Monks and her amazing team provide a totally invaluable service to the Islands vulnerable young people, a situation which is only getting more serious each year. Additionally the Youth Trust are the people who run our amazing Welfare service onsite looking after you guys when you’ve overdone it or lost something and also spend weeks afterwards reuniting people with their lost passports/phones/ipads and other valuables lost at the party! Thanks for supporting this excellent cause.”

Energy Revolution


Bestival has co-founded Energy Revolution, an unprecedented collaboration of festivals tackling climate change. When you buy your festival ticket this year take part in history by accounting for your travel emissions. With the festival community working together we can account for one million of miles of travel impacts in 2016 through funding a festival wind turbine. Let’s keep the party going, forever…
