The DUB PISTOLS have been confirmed to play the main stage at the legendary Bestival Festival, this year will be the multi award winning festivals 10th anniversary and the theme is HMS Bestival
Can you believe that 2013 will see Bestival hitting those magic double figures? That’s right, Bestival is ten and we’re really pushing the boat out for what promises to be our biggest and best year ever.
To celebrate we’re beating the drum for a whole decade of dancing on the Isle of Wight, by revealing our 2013 theme and inviting you to jump aboard HMS Bestival! Yes indeed, we’re manning the rails, splicing the main brace and rocking the sailor’s hornpipe – it’s all hands on deck, so best make sure we like the cut of your jib!
“All the nice girls love a sailor and all the boys love a mermaid. Think deckhands, anchors, beach parties, Moby Dick, tattooed ladies, Titanic, shipwrecks, Hawaii, Treasure Island, rum bars in scuzzy ports, message in a bottle, the crow’s nest, sea legends, monster breakers and tall tales of life on the ocean waves. Nautical but nice! There’s no better time to join the good ship HMS Bestival and our trusty crew of merrimakers than now, so get your 2013 tickets and prepare to set sail me hearties!” HMS Bestival skipper Rob da Bank
