It is going to rain like a cunt at Bestival. With heavy showers forecast for Friday, and light showers and hammering winds for Saturday and Sunday. It is supposed to improve on Monday, when everyone leaves.

Bestival tickets were being advertised on Ebay and Gumtree between £130 – £200 up until today, now only reaching between £60 and £90. If you like wet windy festivals and bargains, get in there.

Wet festivals are not nearly as fun

Then the weather reports rolled in, and all of a sudden the price of a Bestival ticket plummeted. By this stage I didn’t really feel like going anymore, despite the fact that I’d attended the previous three years. I heard from my friends that it was still pretty good, and I love Glastonbury for the mud, but the Bestival site is extremely badly suited to bad weather; essentially, a big bowl. […]

  4. […] goes to show you how weak this year’s line-up is. You never know, there might be some notable special guests still to be announced, but as long as the weather is an improvement on last year I will be looking […]
