Bestival

In the country of United Kingdom at the Robin Hill, Downend Newport, Bestival is celebrated every year in a big manner. This is such kind of a festival where over 60,000 plus attendees attend every year. The number increased from 10,000 in the first year of the event and growing at a faster rate.  It’s got such a good reputation for positive fun that Sir Elton John agreed to perform the main stage his first festival appearance in the UK in over three decades.

Bestvival organises a Fancy dress parade every year usually on Saturday and in the year 2010 it achieved a place in the Guinness Book of World records. Costumes will play a key role in the festival. The Priests wear purple to reflect the period of anticipation and signify the presence of purity by wearing white. You can find special tents offering workshops on ostume making during the even which will be funny.

You can find the greener festival alliance founded by the organizers which highlight the ways concert goers can reduce their impact on locations where festivals take place. On the Bestival grounds, you’ll also find the Bestival Mother and Child Chill Out Zone, a separate quiet yurt, where mothers can nurse. There is also the Come Dancing Spiegeltent, a mirrored big top tent that offers dance lessons throughout the entirety of the festival. You can take a break from enjoying live performances of top acts and step back in time to learn the Charleston, the Lindy Hop, swing dancing, and more.
