Win a pair of tickets to Bestival on the Isle of Wight for a lucky reader – competition now closed
[This competition is now closed.]
If you’re based in the UK then you will probably have heard about Bestival at some point – it’s an annual music festival that traditionally finishes off a summer of live music and festivals all around the UK. It’s held on the Isle of Wight, on the south coast of England in Hampshire, which is where I visited last Monday (see my Postcard of the Week on Osborne House) and it’s on this coming weekend, from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th September!
Very excitingly I have two free tickets to Bestival to give away to one of my readers! Tickets would cost you £190/person if you had to buy them, so this is a great chance to catch some live music for free before the autumn rolls in! Although the festival starts on Thursday, you can turn up whenever you fancy, and the tickets include camping. Headlining the festival is Fatboy Slim, Snoop Dogg and Elton John, and among the hundreds of other artists are Franz Ferdinand, Bombay Bicycle Club, Bastille, The Roots, Disclosure, Rudimental, DJ Fresh, Jessie Ware…. Literally the line-up is enormous, you can check out the full line-up here.
I’m very fortunate to be able to offer you these tickets as they’re a gift from Shenanigans, an Irish experience hosted by Tourism Ireland in the Grassy Hill part of the festival. The winner will also get to be featured on The Well-Travelled Postcard with a guest post for this blog reviewing Bestival, all the live acts and Shenanigans, the Irish experience.
“You’re invited to get lost in a whirlwind of Irish adventures! It may look like a traditional Irish experience, but once you step through the door you’ll be whisked away on a whistle-stop tour of Irish… well… shenanigans.”
A pair of free tickets to Bestival from the Thursday until the Sunday. You’ll need to organise your own transport to the festival (you can get Red Funnel ferry tickets here) and bring your own tent & other gear.
