Live from Bestival Festival

BBC Radio 6 Music heads to Bestival Festival this weekend to host the Big Top Stage featuring a number of great live music acts including Beck, Jenny Lewis, Caribou and Basement Jaxx, to name but a few.

Tom's show tonight is live from the Isle of Wight, with guests including pop experimentalist Tune-Yards, Chicago's finest Ezra Furman, Scroobius Pip, and electropop queen Elly Jackson - aka La Roux - ahead of her Big Top performance.

Tom will also be stepping away from the main stages, to check out the weird and wonderful entertainment on offer in the peripheries, before finishing up with a tropical flavoured guest mix from producer Quantic.

Tom has been bringing Friday nights from festivals across the summer including Latitude, Green Man and, now in our season finale, Bestival. Listeners will be able to experience all the excitement and build up as they gear up for their weekend with Tom bringing the vibes from around the festival site, with his usual dry wit and some mind-blowing tunes.
