10 Things We Can’t Wait To Experience At Bestival

Posted on June 10, 2016

The countdown is almost over: Bestival is FINALLY arriving this weekend and we are so pumped! There’s so much to check out that we’ve narrowed down the top ten things you NEED to catch at this incredible festival. ACRO BUDDHAS Besitval-1 #FitnessGoals: These incredibly talented (and limber!) acrobats will be performing across the grounds at any given notice. Even between sets, Bestival makes sure there’s PLENTY of entertaining things to absorb. AFTERPARTIES Bestival-2 Still feel like groovin’ after Bestival is done for the night? Head on over to one of their official afterparties to keep the good vibes alive! BODY PAINTING Bestival-3 No we’ve never had our bodies painted head-to-toe… but there’s a first time for everything! COSTUME PARTY & PARADE Bestival-4 Halloween comes early, thanks to Bestival: we can’t wait to see what extravagant get-ups will make an appearance at this year’s parade! DAUGHTER Zee2 If you’re looking for mellow vibes at this year’s fest, look no further than Daughter: haunting vocals, airy guitar and booming drums fill their latest release (January’s fantastic Not To Disappear.) Let their sweet melodies wash over you–you won’t be disappointed. GRIMES Grimes1 Canada’s own Grimes is hitting the stage Sunday night, and we can’t wait: after an incredible November show in Toronto at the Danforth Music Hall, she’s proved time and time again she’s a force to be reckoned with. Grimes produces all of her own music, and the intense love she puts into every song comes across on-stage. A pure lightning rod of energy, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a single person not dancing along to her big hits like “Flesh Without Blood” and “Kill V. Maim!” RAINBOW SOUL POP-UP PARTY A kaleidoscope of colours and different energies… the best kind of parties are the ones you stumble upon. Take a break from the crowdsurfing and swing by for a mellow experience! “SUMMER OF LOVE” summeroflove This year’s theme is the Summer of Love, throwing it back to 1967! Expect lots of flower crowns, bright colours and flowing dresses… it’s going to be bright and beautiful! TAME IMPALA Tame-Impala-Lollapalooza-Berlin-2015-billboard-650 Now three albums deep, Tame Impala have been on an incredible run: 2010’s Innerspeaker was a refreshing take on psychedelic rock, 2012’s Lonerism brought massive pop hooks into the fold and last year’s Currents proved to be an epic listen front-to-back. Tame Impala will be closing out Saturday night–if you’re going to Bestival, DO NOT miss this set! Screen Shot 2016-06-10 at 12.57.20 PM THREE DIFFERENT STAGES That’s right–no matter what kind of music you’re digging in the moment, Bestival will have something to cater to your tastes. There’s the main stage, the Big Top stage, and the Bollywood stage. Bring your dancing shoes, you’re gonna need ’em! Click here to see the full-lineup. SEE YOU SOON, BESTIVAL!
