"So here we are…our tenth birthday…like a small child proudly entering double figures…but here’s Bestival still wearing ill fitting shorts and running about with grazed knees giggling in the sunlight…Happy days!"

The words of Rob da Bank there, festival fanatic and founder of Bestival - one of the UK's most unique outdoor events. Turning ten with nary a wrinkle in sight, the Isle of Wight event is preparing to welcome a host of bona fide icons this summer.

Sir Elton John, knight of the realm and all round entertainer is set to provide a headline set, while hip hop star Snoop Dogg is also due to appear. The Knife will bring their dramatic stage show to Bestival, while other exclusive performances set to come from Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, The Roots, Bombay Bicycle Club and more.

As ever, Bestival welcomes the best in club culture, with this summer's event due to welcome the likes of Ritchie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, the Numbers crew and more.

Running between September 5th - 8th, Clash have two pairs of tickets to give away.
