    Excellent lineup so far. I still regret not making it for the year Beasties played 2 sets and Chemical Brothers headlined
    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.

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

    Well, I'm sure they'll tour the States sometime this year. They've played the Marquee a couple of times.

    There is a big chance we'll be going to this instead of our other planned vacation based on that lineup.

    Awesome decision! I'd love to provide some tips for the trip - things I learned along the way and will definitely keep in mind next time I go.
