September again brings the huge and well-loved Bestival Festival at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight. Bestival is an award winning 4-day boutique festival born out of ten years of music events and record releases from Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best empire. It is proud to announce for this year’s event, Stevie Wonder, Florence and the Machine, New order and Friendly Fires to name but a handful of the hundred or so acts actually performing.
