Bestival 2011

In early September I managed to sneak off just before fashion week for a last glimpse of summer fun, a road trip with Bright Light Bright Light down to the Isle of White for Bestival, where they were also performing on the Saturday night dress up night as the Pet Shop Boys. Two orange boiler suits and some cardboard twirly cones later and there you go.... Pet Shop Boys! Not to mention the drummer dressed as David Bowie, backing singers dressed as Lisa Minelli and Dusty Springfield and a 90's dance off from the Sink The Pink Dancers, brilliant.

After which we managed to catch some also amazing performances from The Cure, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Kelis, Robyn and more. With a grand finale' from non other than Bjork which was totally mindblowingly beautiful, not just because we were right at the front of the crowd but also it was a really spectacular show.. key moments were Bjork setting off some fireworks in her hands and genuinely looking shocked at the scale of them.... genius as was her blue plexi headpiece.

I also loved the new Block 9 area the Swamp Shack, the always brilliant Crew Bar and a very fun Disco in a Tree!
