Electric Eclecticism - Bestival's Big Top Stage Revealed

Festival Crowd Header

The Big Top, old 'big blue' in the main arena is Bestival’s action-packed, genre busting second largest stage, amidst a myriad of mind-blowing musical and immersive experiences and insane Bestival micro-parties.

Opening the show on Thursday night with a line-up big enough to grace almost any other festival’s main stage, it’s where the best breakthrough acts rub shoulders with cult heroes and international favourites. Giving genre-specific cosiness a swerve, The Big Top is awe-inspiring eclecticism brought to life and programmed for maximum aceness. And this year it’s going to be even better than ever, as, for the very first time, we have teamed up with BBC Radio 6 Music to present The Big Top Hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the cream of 6 Music’s presenter line-up DJing in between acts, bringing you the very best music round the clock.
