Bestival 2011

The mother of all fancy dress festivals is coming just around the corner again, and we at Deer Brains are pretty damn excited about it. Managing to combine the island setting at the Isle of Wight with a ridiculously strong line-up headlined by Bjork, The Cure and Pendulum, Bestival's organisers have pulled out all the stops once again.

This year there are 18 stages and tents all over the site, and it looks pretty much guaranteed to satisfy anyone's festival tastes. Burlesque and performance lover? Then the Time For Tease tent looks like it's the one for you. Bit of a raver? The Bollywood Tent will be (unexpectedly, given its name) serving up some of the best DJ sets from the likes of Doorly, Pete Tong & Tensnake. And if you're just an old-fashioned 'I'm here for the music' festival-goer then acts like Yuck, Brian Wilson, The Correspondents and James Blake should be enough to satisfy your thirst for great tunes.



The festival's still got tickets going at the moment, but looks likely to sell out soon. Hop to it now, by clicking here. We also hear there's a planned charity drive to swim to the isle - could be a pretty incredible way to get there, no? If you'd rather go for the more conventional route, there's info on car-shares and ferry journeys here.
