Bestival reveals ‘Summer of Love’ theme for 2015

Bestival founder Rob da Bank has revealed a Summer of Love theme for 2015 as a positive reaction to “all the bad news and downright evil going on in the world”.
 
Da Bank continued: “We’re not hiding our heads in the sand and pretending everything’s rosy and laid-back but we can, as a big family of 50,000 people, come together, listen to music, party and spread love, even if it’s just for the weekend. That has always been at the heart of Bestival and its year-round community. Hate out, love in!”
 
“We just couldn’t help ourselves. The unadulterated disco vibes of last year’s spectacular Bestival stirred something deep inside us, reconnected us to our purpose, and stoked the flames of our burning passion; we know now that in essence, we’re here for the love. The love of the music, the love of the adventure, the love of the unexpected, but most of all, it’s the purest love – the love of the party. From the 10-13 September, we’re taking our Robin Hill adventures on the Isle of Wight back to the one simple thing that started our crazy story – this year it’s all about Bestival’s Summer of Love.”
 
Da Bank, who also founded the AIF, went on to emphasise a deeper foundation for the theme.
 
“We’re not just talking about bell-bottomed hippies with flowers in their hair, or red-jeaned ravers circumnavigating the M25. It’s deeper and wider, and even longer than that. It’s about positivity, peace and love, and bananas not guns. We want all people, all sexes, all ages, all cultures to come together and to share the good times, to celebrate the simple joy of unity, to feel the unparalleled pleasures of dancing shoulder to shoulder with wonderful strangers and loving every second. We want the greatest party of all time. And we know you do, too,” he added.
 
Tickets for Bestival’s Summer of Love go on sale at 10am on Thursday 12 February, when the first wave of acts, including two headliners will also be revealed.
