Bestival – Essential Playlist

It’s almost here, the end of festival season *fights back tears*. We’ll be hanging up our pack-a-mac, throwing our wellies behind the wardrobe, leaving the tent to slowly rot away under the bed, and not spending every weekend in a field soon. However, before all of that, we’ve got the fancy dress extravaganza and end of summer party that is Bestival to enjoy.


To get you in the mood, we’ve compiled out essential playlist. It features the likes of The Cure, Bjork, Metronomy, Yuck, Friendly Fires and Tom Vek – perfect for perusing while you prepare your fancy dress costume.

Listen to it now:
