Bestival, held on the Isle of Wight and organised by Rob Da Bank, is the cherry on top of the festival season. There’s always a fancy dress theme and this year it was ‘The Future’. Some people really got carried away…
When bae is a character from Mars Attacks!.
Not entirely sure how these two fit the brief futuristic brief, but they look damn cool.
Wolf Alice tore up the main stage, interrupting the chilled atmosphere with a raucous set.
Even Daft Punk showed up! (Not really this is just two pretenders in surprisingly good costumes.)

Katy B kept it sweet with tracks from latest album ‘Honey’.
People say millionaire DJ Diplo lives in a bubble from the real world, and they’d be right.

A modern family.
The Cure played the hits, with Robert Smith saying, “I came last year and thought, ‘Please Duran Duran, just play your singles.’” Amen to that.
