Festival team apply for new location in Dorset...

Bestival is set to leave the Isle Of Wight next year, the team has announced.

The festival has long been an institution on the Isle Of Wight, since its launch back in 2004.

However the multi award-winning event struggled this summer, with Bestival down-sizing amid low ticket sales.

Now founder Rob da Bank has issued a new statement, confirming that the festival is set to move...

"Hot off the press – yes Bestival is moving! We can confirm we have submitted a licence application for a new site at the Lulworth Estate in Dorset and we’re super excited about our shiny new Bestival adventure. We have an incredible line-up, headliners confirmed and ridiculous new stages and installations coming your way in 2017."

"We remain fully committed to supporting the Isle of Wight through music, charities and projects and will be giving Islanders an exclusive ticket offer for the new site. Plus we’re working towards a new event for the Island. Watch this space…"

So there we have it. Get involved in the debate on Twitter.
