    Jesus, New Order. We're pretty much set on going; we just can't afford to buy tickets until after Coachella (hello, nice fat IRS bill). I can't imagine who the other headliners are, but they're clearly tailoring this festival to both of our musical tastes.

    Lilia--I did notice the schedule issue as well. Kind of shitty they don't give you the set times in advance so you can map out your stuff. But whatever, I guess.

    We’ve delved even deeper into the Ambient Forest this year and are very excited to be presenting a brand new performance stage: The Amphitheatre. Nestled under a canopy of trees, this beautiful spot will be home to a host of eclectic treats, from live film scores, to comedy sketch shows, to theatre and poetry.

    In the daytime we’ll be showcasing a vast array of the very best spoken word maestros in Scroobius Pip’s Lizard Lounge sessions. We’ve also got some seriously funny sketch groups unleashing their hilarity for our chortling pleasure. In Max & Ivan are Holmes & Watson, history’s greatest detective tackles Chicago’s mobster underworld in this thrilling escapade! Next up are The Unexpected, the creators of the hugely popular YouTube sensation ‘Gap Yah’. And then there’s Four Screws Loose: officially the tallest (not to mention the sexiest) sketch comedy group on the circuit!

    In the theatrical offerings, we have the delightful Owdyado Theatre, presenting ‘About A Bench’, a funny, surreal and playful show of ten stories taking place on a park bench. Then newcomers Soundbites will be bringing some of the most hotly tipped theatre makers and musicians face to face to create new short plays that feature live music on stage. Kinda like a live music video. But better. And for mind expanding musings, don’t miss our series of talks from the mighty RSA, who will be presenting ideas and thoughts from some of the leading enlightened thinkers of our time.

    As night falls, we’ll be turning to the silver screen. In a first for Bestival, we’ll be teaming up leading DJs and musicians with a handpicked selection of your favourite films, to offer some brilliantly unique live score cinematic collaborations. Rob da Bank will be leading the way with an unmissable re-scoring of the 1930s film King Kong.

    And that’s not all that’s going on in the Ambient Forest. Back by popular demand, you can start your day in a secluded clearing in the woods, with a very special meditation or yoga session, presented by leading experts, the David Lynch Foundation. And if you are wandering around after dark, look out for the extraordinarily talented interactive theatre company Gideon Reeling, who’ll be popping up along the trails when you least expect it! Already firm favourites at Camp Bestival, prepare to be enchanted, surprised, enlightened and bewildered by your assortment of encounters with this fabulous gang.

    I talked to a co-worker yesterday that is in town from London; she's been to Bestival herself and said she had the best time; also that the Isle of Wight is "lovely". I'm wondering if I can cargo ship my camping equipment to her so I don't have to pay to rent anything.

    Upcoming Shows:
    Kasabian/Bo Ningen: 10/1 @ Metro
    Coachella: 4/10-12 @ Empire Polo Fields

    Still one of the best festivals I've ever been to. Their lineup never disappoints. The amount of effort they go through to produce such an incredible vibe is amazing and I wish more festivals would go to the same extremes.
    Some of the new additions to 2012:

    Film is coming to Bestival in 2012 New for 2012 are the Lost Picture Show – a vintage cinema to take you back to the golden age of movie going, plus Rob da Bank will be rescoring the 1930s original of King Kong at the brand new Amphitheatre performance space in the Woods with more film collaborations to be announced soon.

    Soul Park Our new and expanded Healing Area will feature unique spaces for yoga, massage, relaxation, hammocks and meditation with the David Lynch Foundation, plus wood-burning Scandinavian hot tubs and a sauna area. Perfectly calm for when you just need to relax a little and refresh to get your positive energy recharged.

    Arcadia Mechanical Cabaret Not content with having invented the crazy mechanical spider that spits flames and has scared the living pants off us at the last few Bestis, Arcadia have now trawled the world for brand new structures and insane fire art to wow us with, much of it from Burning Man.

    Young British Foodies We’ve got the country’s finest young chefs, street food vendors, bakers and mixologists all under one roof! Winners of the nationwide search for the most talented Young British Foodies will be joined by the YBF all-star foodie judges to create a never-been-done-before, spectacular eating experience.

    More camping space Yes we may not be expanding on capacity onsite cos we know we’re the right size but we will be creating much more space for you… check out this aerial picture which attempts to show you all the new land we’ve taken.

    Good to see some more concrete evidence that Sigur Ros will be playing shows this year. The lineup is ok. Sigur Ros and Spiritualized excite me. I'm sure some of the additons will be really good, as well.

    ARG every time there's an update it reminds me that we can't go to this festival this year, and that lineup is just effing sick.

    I guess it's the only show they're doing in the UK. Maybe it's a one off before as 2013 tour.

    le sigh. Maybe we'll just plan better and go next year. Supposedly, Depeche is a sho-in for a headliner next year.
