Robin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight; September 9-12
September is traditionally a crap month, what with everyone having to go back to school/uni/work after summer, so the fancy dress theme for this year’s Bestival (Fantasy) is designed to cheer everyone up. Past years have been beset by mud but everyone’s so perky that it only adds to the weirdness – plus, it’s medically impossible to be bummed out when Dizzee Rascal’s in town, or indeed when The Prodigy or LCD Soundsystem are onstage. There’s also one of Roxy Music’s only two British festival dates, and a UK-exclusive set from Fever Ray.
