Bestival Benefit

A very special charity night ‘Bestival Benefit’ will be held on Saturday 30th March 2013 in memory of those involved in the fatal coach crash in 2012 on the A3

In September 2012, Bestival promoters and the entire festival team were utterly devastated to learn of the fatal coach crash involving Bestival-goers following our 2012 event. After extensive consultation with those affected and as a tribute to everyone involved, we would like to announce a very special charity night ‘Bestival Benefit’ on Saturday 30th March 2013.

Rob da Bank said: “Bestival HQ and everyone connected to Bestival 2012 were devastated by what happened after our festival on the A3. We've been working to get an event set up to show some love and hopefully raise lots of money for those affected and their families and we're pleased it's in the home town of many of those involved; Liverpool. Thanks to everyone who has rallied round and contributed to making this event happen – everyone from the DJs and live bands to the venue Nation are donating their time and services for free so please get the date in your diary and prepare to party for a very good cause. See you on the dancefloor.”

Michael Molloy, Kerry Ogden and coach driver Colin Daulby died in the tragic accident, Zach Washington-Young suffered life-changing injuries and many others involved were also affected. We knew that we had to do everything we could to show that they are in our hearts and minds so we’d be honoured if you would join us in paying tribute to them, helping us to raise as much money for charity as possible. 

Iconic Liverpool landmark Nation, the home of Cream, has kindly provided us with the venue for a fundraising show hosted by Rob da Bank and the Cuban Brothers that will feature some of Liverpool’s finest and guests doing what they do best with proceeds from the night donated to charity. 

Tickets priced £16.25 including booking fee are available now from Ticketline. Please save the date and put Saturday 30th March in your diary now. Full line-up details for this one-off event will be released very soon, so please watch this space.

Event location:
1 - 3 Parr Street
