Bestival Here We Come!

Bestival lives up to its name year after year. It's one of the most fun, most colourful, musically eclectic fests out there, and Rob da Bank with his wife and friends always puts on a brilliant show to end the summer. Even when I was ill there last year I had a brilliant time. Everyone's in fancy dress (don't let that put you off, it really is a sight to savour), the modd is always ace and there's so much music from bands to dance to cheesy stuff to everything else, it's ace. The Introducing stage is back there this year with a line-up that Rob's personally picked (like the rest of the stages too of course), with Metronomy, Black Kids, Pete and the Pirates, Lykke Li, Noah and the Whale and Late of the Pier just some of those playing....

Scenes from last year. Bet this year will be even sunnier...

You can hear live highlights on Rob's Sunday show at midnight which I'm looking after while Rob's at Bestival, and on the Introducing show next Wednesday at 9pm...

Tonight from 9pm and at Midnight it's Manchester's wonderful Beep Seals in sesison, and the best new Emerging, Under the Radar and exciting new music out there. Catch you later!
