Bestival Weekend Review

After a successful first day and night at Bestival those who had the stamina to make their way down to the main stage for the first act of day were treated to some ‘ReggAerobics’.

A small but willing crowd shook of their hangovers while most of Bestival were still tucked up in their sleeping bags.

A short walk up up the hill on the search for some breakfast we passed the Rimmel ‘Ellebeautyboard’ where an absurdly long queue was developing with ladies eager to have their festival make up touched up by professional make up artists. Unfortunately there was no seating available for the unfortunate boyfriends that had been dragged along to wait with them.

We finally found the holy grail of food areas at ‘The Feast Collective’ who were serving up a variety of international delicacies. From Korean BBQ to Buttermilk chickens to hand made Maki sushi rolls, there was more than enough quality food for even the most discerning of eaters.

The afternoon really kicked of down at the Temple island stage where the stars from BBC 3’s show ‘People do nothing’ performed as the pirate radio grime artists ‘Kurupt FM’. The combination of sunshine, hit grime tracks, comedy and the biggest crowd of the day so far was a winning formula.

Down at the main stage the evening began where ‘Jungle’ brought down their unique mix of rythmic soul pop to the Isle of Wight. Backed by a great band they’ve grown into a beast that is going from strength to strength since releasing their debut album ‘Jungle’ back in 2014. The crowd lapped up the modern soul and went crazy for hits ‘Busy Earnin’ and ‘The Heat’ as the sun set to really kick off the night.

Our highlight of the day was down at the Big Top stage with ‘Future Islands’ who delivered the best set of the festival so far. The band from Greenville NC, brought a mesmerising performance as singer Samuel Herring had the crowd in the palm of his hand and it’s his performance that really sets this band apart from others. The non-stop energy was carried throughout the entire set and when fan favourite ‘Seasons’ came on the crowd went ballistic. A true Indie band that delivers on all levels is refreshing to see where so many are lacking. The last song ‘Spirit’ had most of the crowd on each other’s shoulders and drew the curtains on a fantastic Saturday night at Bestival.
