More amazing stuff set for Bestival with re-vamps and a new arena

The Bestival build up has well and truly begun, with less than four weeks until another top drawer shindig begins! There's news of a revamp for one of Bestival's most popular destinations, Bollywood, plus a new music stage, Replay With Rob da Bank.

2012 will see the new world of Bollywood at Bestival, the Bollywood Tent has been a Bestival institution since the very first event in 2004, the brainchild of Bestival Creative Director Josie da Bank and her best mate Natasha Hill. It’s remained many people’s favourite arena over the years – this is the venue that DJs request to play in year on year, even after they have outgrown the capacity of the tent itself (hello Fatboy Slim).

This year it’s getting a giant facelift, in the form of a massive temple entranceway and a new Indian-themed Cocktail Bus in front of it, plus loads of new Indian day beds and parasols outside and fresh decor inside.

Replay are returning to Bestival for 2012, this time with their brand new Replay with Rob da Bank stage. Stacked full of the most exciting new acts around, the man like Da Bank has pushed his music discovering powers to the very limit to bring you the first chance to see some ace bands that are destined for big things.

The full line-up includes, Summer Camp, Alt-J, Clement Marfo & The Frontline, Willis Earl Beal, Iceage, Wet Nuns, Dingus Khan, Jake Bugg, This is the Kit, The Staves, Mary Epworth, Daytona Lights, Rudimental, Kwes, Big Kids, The Other Tribe, James McCartney, The Coronas, Nina Nesbitt, Jinja Safari, Lucky Elephant, Stealing Sheep, Balearic Folk Orchestra, Two Jackals, Clock Opera, AlunaGeorge, Diagrams, Tom Williams, & the Boat, Crowns, Kate Nash, King Charles, Skepta, Gush, Palma Violets, Sunless 97, Georgous George, Gecko and Beans on Toast. Lots of these are the acts you need to see before anyone else.
“The Replay stage at Bestival 2011 was a lot of fun with some ace acts playing impromptu sets and this year I’ve stepped up my programming of the all new Replay with Rob da Bank stage and I’m pretty chuffed with who I’ve managed to book loads of new acts from AlunaGeorge to Sunless 97, Alt-J, The Other Tribe and BIGKids and welcoming back past heroes of Bestival like Kate Nash. Gonna be big!”
