Bestival Announce ‘Summer of Love’ Theme

The festival’s co-founder, Rob Da Bank described the 2015 theme as “simple…and hopefully one that’s easy to embrace”, further claiming that it’s a “positive reaction to all the bad news and downright evil going on in the world”.

“We’re not hiding our heads in the sand and pretending everything’s rosy and laid-back but we can, as a big family of 50,000 people, come together, listen to music, party and spread love, even if it’s just for the weekend. That has always been at the heart of Bestival and it’s year-round community. Hate out, love in!”

If you fancy getting involved in the ‘summer of love’, tickets for this year will go on sale at 10am GMT on February 12th, alongside the announcement of the first wave of acts.
