Bestival News: Long Live The Spaceport!

The future really is here! Prepare for a brand new, intergalactic experience at Bestival 2016...

This year, Bestival promises to transport us to The Future; a glamorous machine age full of forward thinking musical talent, cosmic experiences and sonic adventuring.

The team behind the festival have already announced that Major Lazer, The Cure, and Hot Chip will be headlining, with so many other musical pioneers appearing across the weekend. Alongside the incredible acts, there's guaranteed to be a plethora of intergalactic experiences including the Druid Opening Ceremony and the Love-Bot. But the evolution continues, with a brand new stage being announced for 2016.

If you've ever been to Bestival, you will know and love The Port, a mind-blowing nautical vision with HMS Bestival as its phenomenal centre piece. However, HMS Bestival has vanished in mysterious circumstances, and in it's place comes The Spaceport!

The Port is Dead, Long Live The Spaceport!

At the Spaceport, next-level partying isn't just an ambition, it's a promise. The epic new stage will feature a giant 20 meter tall rocket its centre, and will be loaded with lasers and a state of the art sound system.

When talking about The Spaceport, Bestival Co-curator Rob Da Bank has said we should "Be under no illusions my futuristic friends… This stage is going to blow your mind and take you interstellar like no other stage before… This is The Future of the dance. HMS Bestival, our trusty old ship, has sunk or otherwise been sucked down a Bermuda Triangle shaped whirlpool, and thus we are reinventing Robin Hill’s sacred rave space once more with a spaceship the likes Planet Earth has never witnessed."

As if that isn't enough - they've also confirmed that Diplo, Fatboy Slim and Carl Cox will appear at the Spaceport over the weekend!

Up for some time travel?

If you want to see The Spaceport live in the flesh (and we don't blame you!) then tickets for Bestival are still up for grabs. With t-minus 196 days until Bestival kicks off - there's still plenty more to come! We can't wait to see what they're keeping up their spacesuit sleeves...
