Sir Elton John has closed Bestival 2013 with a set featuring some of his most well known hits. The performance included Tiny Dancer, I'm Still Standing and Candle in the Wind. During the show the 66-year-old said: "Do you know, I haven't done a festival in England since 1969. The only reason I decided to do this is because it's a great festival. I love Rob Da Bank for making it a great success story."
Snoop Dogg performs on the Main Stage at Bestival on Saturday. He's one of 350 acts appearing at Robin Hill Country Park during the four days.

The festival, which takes place this year between 5 - 8 September, is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The festival is renowned for its fancy dress theme. Crowds of about 60,000 people are expected over the weekend.
The theme this year is HMS Bestival - all things nautical.
The sunny weather on the first day was perfect for pitching tents but the advice for anyone going over the weekend is to pack wellies.
Earlier this year, Elton John had to cancel his performance at the British Summertime festival in London's Hyde Park because of illness. The singer and his band will close Bestival on Sunday night. There will also be a firework display.
