    Most of Europe? They are touring around there, so not many people are crazy to see them in a festival.

    It's off the South Coast. I have no idea how to get there. I'm sure there are ferries & probably an airport too.

    I just purchased my tix! I had been saving for Glasto, but when I read that this would be MBV and APHEX 's exclusive UK Fest appearance, I was sold. FOALS and FUCK BUTTONS! Plus Gary Numan, Human League and Parliament!!! Yikes. And theres still more to be announced. So I will most likely be sitting this year's Coachella out. If Aphex and MBV are't coming to the US anytime soon, then by darn it, I'll come to them.

    Evening All,

    Just reading all your posts and thought i'd tell you a bit about it.

    Been to Bestival for the last two years and it's now my favorite festival of the lot, so back this year too. Been to two Glasto's and it beats crap out of them.
    It's as uncorporate as you can get (within reason), which just adds to the atmosphere of only about 20,000 people having a great laugh.

    The Saturday night is supposedly the worlds biggest fancy dress party, last year walked past Chewbacca eating a pancake about Sat lunchtime and didn't even blink, only realized later the bizare nature of the incident. The Beasties played on Sat and Sun last year and declared it their favorite ever festival.

    It's the baby of Rob Da Bank, a BBCRadio1 DJ generally uninterested with trends, who just plays the music he loves and finds interesting, and the festival line-up reflects this, you won't just find the latest faceless guitar bands filling up the main stage. Just genuinely interesting, different music in every stage/tent with most of the tents going on til three four o'clock with some fantastic dj's.

    Also loads of tents about to sit down on sofas and the like, to chill during the day.

    Dead easy to get to isle of Wight, just a ferry from Portsmouth which is close enough to London for anyone to work out a route.

    Honestly, just a fantastic festival.
