Bestival Goes International

The UK's Bestival has gone international.
This trademark triumvirate of music, magic and mayhem will be heading to North America, landing in Toronto, Canada for the first-ever Bestival abroad!
It will take place June 12 and 13, 2015.
The original boutique festival attracts 50,000 fans each year. Known for its creative vision and eclectic music, including previous headliners Stevie Wonder, Florence + the Machine, The Cure, Kraftwerk and the world's greatest electronic DJs, Bestival ensures the British summer will go with a bang.
Now the North American summer will bang just the same.
Curator Rob da Bank says, "We have waited 12 years to decide to launch another Bestival outside of the UK and our beloved Bestival, on the Isle of Wight, which has grown into one of the most important festivals in the global calendar. It took a really special city, and an even more exciting site, with Toronto and Toronto Island, to make us take the leap. So, the waiting is over and we are so excited to be launching in North America in June, with a classic Bestival line-up waiting to thrill, intrigue and party! I'd like to thank all our partners, friends, new and old, and supporters in Toronto, for making this happen. We cannot wait!"
Keeping our love affair with islands well and truly alive, Bestival Toronto will be set on Hanlan's Point Beach, in the Toronto Islands, on the shore of Lake Ontario. It's one of the most picturesque spots we could find in North America, and the familiar sense of adventure and escapism that getting on a ferry and crossing water gives you, made it impossible to resist.
