The 2012 Bestival Festival Lineupstival

The 2012 Bestival lineup was announced for the September show.

New Order, The xx, Sigur Ros, Friendly Fires, JUSTICE, Hot Chip and Two Door Cinema Club top the bill for Bestival 2012. The boutique music festival set in a tranquil park on the Isle of Wight is scheduled from September 6-9, 2012. The four day Bestival features an amazingly large lineup, a good chunk of it curated by Rob da Bank (a legendary BBC DJ who is responsible for the vision of the festival).

Of course, the lineup is fantastic, but people really want to know? What is the theme of Bestival for this year? The theme for 2012 will be Wildlife folks. Get ready to get wild, and so forth and so on with the wildlife puns. Also new to Bestival this year will be vintage films showings and an expanded Healing Area.

There’s a variety of different tickets, but the most basic seems to around £180 for the weekend. See the official Bestival site for more options and click here to see the most current Bestival 2012 lineup.

Fun Fact: The Bestival website boasts creepy woodland trees and creatures with eyes that follow your mouse pointer.
