Bestival 2018

A few weeks back, we were revealing the line-up for this year's Bestival, which will take place on Robin Hill Place, from Friday September 11th to Sunday 13th, and be headlined by Kraftwerk and Massive Attack, respectively on the Friday and the Saturday, with performances by Bats For Lashes, Klaxons, Seasick Steve, Little Boots, Ebony Bones and VV Brown, "among many others." Well, these others are rather significant as they include Mercury-prize winners Elbow, who will headline on the Sunday night (September 13th), their fellow Mancunians Doves, as well as Lilly Allen, Esser, Polly Scattergood, Just Jack and goth panto The Horrors.

Adding to the DJ line-up will be Toddla T, Dublime, Applebim, Martyn, Daisy Heartbreaker and Kasra, and many more.

This year's theme for the fancy dress parade is 'Out of Space', so go scout for those unearthly outfits!

Weekend tickets (£170 for adults; £70 for teens aged 13 to 15; free for under-13s; + booking fee) are on sale now.
