Plus Public Enemy to appear at the bash
Bestival organisers have revealed the festival’s fancy dress theme.
Bestival 2011, which takes place between September 8-11, will be headlined by The Cure on the Saturday night (10), with Robyn and Magnetic Man also appearing and more acts yet to be announced. Public Enemy have been added to the bill, and are third on the bill on the Friday night of the bash.
The Isle Of Wight event’s fancy dress parade has become a major tradition, with the theme chosen by organiser Rob Da Bank. This year, festivalgoers are invited to base their outfits around Rock Stars, Pop Stars and Divas.
Da Bank said: “Dressing up and escapism has always been a big part of Bestival and our faithful crew are mega inventive to the point of eccentricity! This year’s theme of Rock Stars, Pop Stars and Divas should give everyone enough ideas to really let rip with some outrageous, weird and downright flamboyant outfits. There are no excuses!
“Having said that, I hope everyone doesn’t take it too literally – I’d love to see some Frank Zappas, Captain Beefhearts, Skream and Bengas or a Karen Carpenter as much as the better known faces. This has got to be a great opportunity for some group action too! Personally, it’s a toss-up between Dolly Parton and Prince.”
