Bestival goes 3D


This years Bestival, which includes headline sets from The Cure, Pendulum, Primal Scream presents Screamadelica, PJ Harvey, Brian Wilson and DJ Shadow amongst a huge and ever-growing line-up of musical treats, are taking their TV coverage to a whole new level this year. They’ll be breaking new ground for festival entertainment with a super-generous seven and a half hours of Bestival 3D TV on Sky this coming September.

Rob da Bank said: “It’s amazing to be part of the world’s first 3D TV festival extravaganza on Sky. Bestival in 3D will be a mind-blowing explosion of colour and multi-dimensional music and mayhem and it’s great to be working with Whizz Kid again to bring it to life. Having Camp Bestival too as part of the Sky festival season means we’ve got a great summer of TV ahead.”

This year they’ll be beaming all the best bits of music and mayhem from Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight directly into your front room, all in very modern 3D on Sky. Teaming up with the legendary Malcolm Gerrie’s Whizz Kid Entertainment Bestival will broadcast two hours of LIVE 3D TV each day from Friday 9th through to Sunday 11th September, so you’ll be able to experience Bestival’s unique magic in 3D form. There will also be a super-sized 90-minute Bestival Special on Sky One following the festival season’s closing spectacular, so everyone who was there can relive their glories and catch up with the bits that they’ve missed.

Of course, nothing beats actually being there; check out the full line up and info at
