For over a decade Bestival has reigned supreme as the best-est festival in the universe. In fact, being so bloody great it’s hard to imagine ways it could improve! But just when you thought it couldn’t get any more awesome, along came Temple Island.
New for 2013, Temple Island is a lucid dreamland of fantastical, beguiling wondrousity. Here acts like London Grammar, DJ Falcon and Karma Kid come to peddle their wares and with other-wordly beats, hypnotize mortals into ecstatic and trance like states.
All around fantasy and reality merge in a haze of bio-sculptures and mythical creatures. Follow the mystery trail of street art by rising star My Dog Sighs. 21 pieces are yours to keep, if you can find them! The first human to complete the entire My Dog Sighs Treasure Hunt will take home a £2,500 masterpiece!
That’s not all though, Bestival’s deepest and darkest secrets are garnered on the Island’s confession wall, and guess what?…It’s hungry for yours! Confess… if you dare, and then re-sin in The Doghouse later on. Whether it be gold, a mermaid, a dugong or to be captain of a ship, here in this most secret of places you’ll find exactly what you’ve always been looking for and never, ever want to leave.
After a hard days cavorting, treasure hunting, street arting and bedazzlement why not be tempted by a plethora of the islands tasty foods, with so many choices one could easily gorge themselves into a happy coma!
But beauty dies fast my friends, so soak it up good! Late on Sunday, as the moon looks on with a smile, Temple Island will go up in flames – taking with it the memories of this magical moment in time and space.
Temple Island – It’s a beautiful place but remember, nothing is as it seems…
