Bestival – “Dress like animals and watch Orbital”

01.02.12 Words by: Charlie Jones

Great news for people who like Bestival, fancy dress and combinations of the above: Orbital will headline The Big Top on Sunday night and “wildlife” will be the theme of the three day festival.

Running from the 6-9 September, in Robin’s Hill Park on the Isle of Wight, Rob da Bank’s hugely successful festival will announce a new band a day for the next fortnight, culminating in a headline announcement in mid Feb. Exciting! Eyes here, or on Twitter for more.

It’s not the only festival shows Orbital will be playing – the brothers Hartnoll will be appearing and possibly wearing those flashlight glasses things at The Beat-Herder Festival on the 30th June in Sawley Brow, Bloc on 7th July at the London Pleasure Gardens and The Secret Garden Party on 21st July in Huntingdon. They also be touring the UK, culminating in a gig at the Royal Albert Hall in London on the 10th April. Full tour dates here
