Rob da Bank promises a happy Bestival despite the rain
DJ Rob da Bank has assured Bestival-goers that his festival team are prepared for the expected wet weather.

Storms have been lashing the site at Robin Hill Park in the past week, and although festival organiser da Bank accepts that the weekend will also suffer from bad weather, he says measures have been taken.

Writing on his exclusive NME.COM Bestival Blog, the DJ-turned-promoter says: "Don't want to get too British and bang on about the weather but we may be in for a slightly damp one for the first time at Bestival – but hey ho we're ready and the theme is '30,000 Freaks Under The Sea', so it's all my fault."

For the first time, gates to the festival opened on the Thursday, so around 15,000 people are expected to arrive at the site today.
