Bestival Announce Dates, Theme, and Presale Tickets for 2018 Festival

Bestival is back after a successful debut at the picturesque Lulworth Estate, Dorset, and has a few surprises in store for next summer…

2018 will be the festival’s second year at its new home, having previously been held on the Isle Of Wight – and in true Bestival style, organisers have decided to shake things up a bit.

No longer will the festival be held in September. Dates have now been confirmed as the 2nd – 5th August 2018, so you can enjoy four days of mid-summer Bestivities before heading off back to the grindstone.

The theme for 2018’s shindig will be all things circus, so expect plenty of dressing up and acrobatic shenanigans to be taking place as you wander the festival fields.

Presale tickets, costing a mere £139 plus booking fee, can be purchased from November 3rd. We advise that you snap these up ASAP as they’re available at this price for one week only!

Bestival curator, Rob Da Bank, had this to say about the event. “Roll up roll up! Yes fellow Bestivalites it’s time to run away and join the Circus Bestival style!

Bearded freaks, insane acrobats, high wire daredevils, mutant jugglers and an out of control ringmaster all eager for you to join The Most Colourful Show On Earth await!

And what makes this show even more unmissable is we have moved into peak season August style and will be open a month earlier than usual… so what are you waiting for?”

Bestival takes place between 2nd – 5th August 2018, at the Lulworth Estate, Dorset. For the full line-up, photos, videos and ticket information head over to our Bestival page. You can grab your pre-sale tickets here from Friday 3rd November.
