So the weather isn't quite as nice as yesterday's, but Rob da Bank is back with the second installment of his Countdown To Bestival video blogs exclusively for NME.COM. Watch him talk about erecting The Big Top (in his words, "oo er missus"), the Back To The Future theme for Thursday night with The La's, and James Blake at the Mercury Music Prize.

We will be reporting direct from Bestival this weekend.
