This year was Bestival's 10th birthday, and it was amazing! Elton John smashed it and so did Fat Boy Slim. However I cannot say the same about Snoop Dogg, he was boring and could not keep the attention of the crowd. So we left and went to the polka dot tent, where we saw a lot of quirky reggae style bands.

The cocktail bar was fantastic, they had a living room style set up to watch one of the smaller stages. The ambient forest had hammocks everywhere and Chinese lanterns lighting up the paths throughout the forest making it such a beautiful place to be not only during the day but at night time too.

When you go to a festival most people dread the food, because every festival has terrible food. Except Bestival, they have amazing food, there was amazing vegetarian and vegan healthy food to pulled pork and hog roast.
They even had free showers (well i say free the only thing you had to pay was with your time), not only were they hot but you could take as long as you wanted.

The reason why i love Bestival so much is because its not like other festivals, everyone is so friendly and happy. Throughout the whole weekend we met so many people who were up for just having a laugh. So many people dressed up for this years theme which was HMSBestival. There were sailors and jellyfish to fishermen and sea monsters. Having a fancy dressed theme for the Saturday makes it so much more fun!

I was pretty skeptical going as I went with just my boyfriend (a fairly new relationship) which worried me as 5 days in the outdoors camping without home luxuries is a struggle for families let alone a new couple. But nevertheless we had a fantastic time and didn't kill each other (which seemed likely on the drive home).

I can't wait to find out what next years theme is!
