Bestival announce 2012 early bird tickets

By September 22, 2011 September 9th, 2016 World

So the sun has finally set on what was undoubtedly Bestival’s best year ever. With stunning performances that spanned the great and the good from The Cure, Bjork, Pendulum, PJ Harvey, Brian Wilson, Oh Land, Graham Coxon, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, DJ Shadow, Zola Jesus, Wolf Gang and so many more it’s impossible to list them, now just the fondest of memories, it would be easy to get a bit down in the mouth but never fear, we have the perfect cure for the Bestival blues.


Early Bird tickets for Bestival 2012 go on sale at 9.00am on Friday, September 23.

Fresh from planning more outrageous behaviour for Bestival 2012 Rob da Bank said “Thanks again everyone who made Bestival 2011 our best yet. There was such a wicked crowd of rock stars, pop stars and divas there to witness some of the most incredible performances we’ve seen at Bestival, from The Cure and Brian Wilson to Metronomy and Public Enemy. In fact, I’m really hoping that you all come back so we can do it all exactly the same again! The early bird catches the worm so jump in quick for 2012. Hope to see you there.”
