“Blink” Events: Desert Island Disco-ing at Bestival 2014

Wowsers, what a weekend! The sun shone on the Bestival fields of joy and made an amazing event even more incredible. Thanks to Megan who pitched her tent and hit the party for us. Today you get to rest and recuperate in readiness for London Fashion Week!

This year, Bestival seems to have outdone itself. Not only was the ‘Desert Island Disco’ theme stunningly embraced by the fancy-dressed crowd, Robin Hill Country Park was transformed with beautiful installations, swathes of sandy beaches and a very tropical-island-looking procession of utterly beautiful, awe-inspiring costumes.

Let’s not loose track of the fact that this is essentially a music festival though, and the line up was unbelievably exciting topped off for us by Sam Smith (smashing it again), Outkast and Chic as well as loads of brilliant DJ sets and exciting pop up events.

We’ll kick off our coverage with some shots to set the scene…

And last but not least, Bestival set a new world record for the largest disco ball ever, launched high into the night sky and ending the festivities in utterly magical, appropriately bonkers style!
