Voted best major festival on three occasions in the past six years, Bestival is still right up there amongst the front-runners in the UK music festival industry. This immensely popular festival was also awarded Fans' Favourite Festival in 2011 and Best Medium Sized Festival in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009. With all this recognition, we don't really need to do much more to persuade you that this is one of the UK's best boutique music festivals and an event you should experience at least once in your lifetime.
Formerly taking place on the Isle of Wight, in 2017 Bestival made a move to the home of its sister festival, Camp Bestival, the stunning Lulworth Estate on Dorset's Jurassic coast, in 2018. However, there are currently no announcements of a festival in 2019 and, rumour has it, the festival is on hold for the foreseeable future.
