Bestival 2018 brings the circus to town!

RnB/Hip Hop | Wednesday 16th May 2018 | David

Britain’s leading ‘boutique festival’ returns on the earlier-than-usual dates of August 2nd- 5th with a formidable line-up set to perform at the Lulworth Estate in Dorset.

Celebrating 250 years since the birth of the circus, the 15th Bestival will feature dazzling trapeze routines, knife-throwing, sword-swallowing, fire-eating and other circus acts alongside the music. Speaking of which, among an impressive array of artists, the line-up includes appearances from Jorja Smith, Grace Jones, First Aid Kit, Thundercat, Kelela, London Grammar and Plan B, not to mention the UK live debut of Mark Ronson and Diplo's project, Silk City.

The legendary M.I.A. will be headlining the closing night before Bestival launches what they claim to be their ‘Biggest Ever Finale’, which will see the performers from Cirque Bijou walk a flaming high-wire among other daring feats with the festival’s yearly fireworks display as their backdrop.
