Bestival - Summer of Love

Once again, Licklist never fail to leave you bored.  Here it comes, another festival gem saved for September. That dreaded month where you have to spend a fortune on that must have leather faux fur jacket that you want just as much as Kris Jenner wanted her ex husband to have her own TV show. Well Caitlyn Jenner is one to watch out for in terms of stealing the lime light this month, just as much as Bestival will be.  Taking place 10th-13th September, faffed around too much and worried it's too late? Don't panic, tickets are still available: ts

Located in Robin Hill, Country Park (Isle of White) Which seems to be the destintion of the summer after Pharrell shed some happiness and twerks back in June, making it the place the 'kool kids' go. Bestival sure isn’t going to disappoint you this year, with it’s 2015 theme being #summeroflove theres something to satisfy everyones diet. From an amphitheatre offering top class comedy shows during the day and an open cinema when the sun goes down, to a Bollywood area with Indian beds and parasols to have some summer cuddle ups.  The well known CBBC Chuckle Brothers will be  doing special routine plus smash hit featuring Tinchy Stryder ‘to me to you.’ This is sure to dig up a part of everyones childhood?

Bestival has always been known to offer something a whole lot more than just the music, but don’t fear music gurus. They don’t fail in that department at all. With the line up including Rudimental, Annie Mac, Jungle, Wiley,C harli XCX, Mark Ronson and Duke Dumont you’re sure to have happy ears. 

The festival runs from 11am-5am each day, 5am! Yeah, festivals are kind of pretty hardcore now.  But no fear, hopefully you were sensible enough to book their boutique campsite so you can rest those playsuits every couple of hours. Your tents should be easy to find as the main campsites are divided into colours to create it’s own identity. This year it’s green and red with a main campsite hub to assist you. Theres even a designated quiet hub for those Will Mckenzie’s who find it all a little too much after a while and need somewhere peaceful to skype Mum. 

Licklist's Best Bits:

Jam Jar Bar; a boutique liquor lounge with a decent menu of cocktails. With Cucumber Margaritas and Lemon and Thyme vodka you're sure to feel like Mark Francis and Kate Middleton's secret love child.

Festaxi; now for one of Liclist's personal must's (Festaxi!)& ;nbs p; camping/festaxi

Too tired to nip all the way back to your tent? Prices aren’t confirmed yet, but guys, if you try to pull and get a custard pie , calll it a night by jumping in one of these. A quick getaway and overall a huge save from embarrassment? These babies will get you across the campsite as quick as possible 


Handy Hints:

Volt; camping/volt-mobile-charging  Pre book your Volt phone charger online, you can pick it up when you arrive and attach it straight on your phone. It charges in your pocket, snapchat galore. 

Loo Lounge; for a £30 weekend wristband you can have access to luxury loo’s with hair washing faciliites, straightners and well just general relief that you have a reduced risk of having at Monica Geller moment. Then again, maybe you chose to go for Allie Hamilton's Notebook look? But come on, who really looks that good after being caught in a sorm? Go on girls, it's going to be worth that £30 in three years time when you post that 'throw back'. camping/when-nature-calls
