Bestival is moving to Canada

Don’t worry though festival fans, it’s staying on the Isle of Wight too.

Bestival, one of the UK’s most popular boutique festival experiences, is to head to North America later this year.

The music festival, which has taken place on the Isle of Wight for the previous 12 years, will open its doors to the good people in Toronto across the weekend of the 12th and 13th of June at Hanlan’s Point Beach.

Rob da Bank, curator of Bestival, said of the move: “We have waited 12 years to decide to launch another Bestival outside of the UK and our beloved Bestival, on the Isle of Wight, which has grown into one of the most important festivals in the global calendar.

“It took a really special city, and an even more exciting site, with Toronto and Toronto Island, to make us take the leap!”

Line-up and ticket information will be released in the coming weeks.
