Bestival is a music festival which is held on the Isle of Wight. The festival runs for four days and there has been a Bestival every year since 2004. In 2017, the festival is due to relocate to Dorset in order to give the land at the original site on Robin Hill time to recover and regrow. The original festival attracted around 10 000 people. However, this number has steadily risen over the years, and now the crowds are upwards of 55 000 at the festival every year. In 2015, Bestival was awarded the title of Best Major Festival in the UK in 2015.
