08.02.12

So, someone just rang the office and sang “Prince Charming!”. I asked the caller if they had the right number, they said they were, and sang “Ridicule Is nothing to be scared of!”. I checked again to see if they had the correct number, and he said “Yes! I’m adamant!”

80s popstar Adam Ant, The xx, Justice, Sigur Ros, Azealia Banks and Gold Panda have all been added to the Bestival lineup. Themed around wildlife, the world’s biggest fancy dress party and great festival will take place 6-9th September 2012 at Robin hill park on the Isle of Wight.
