Bestival Fancy Dress 2015 - Summer Of Love Costume Theme
☮ ☮ ☮ ☮ ☮
It’s officially the Summer of Love thanks to Bestival, the UK festival that’s not just a world class music event but also the UK’s biggest fancy dress party of the year.
For 2015 it boasts a line-up of some of the best artists from around the world with Skrillex, Rudimental, Charli XCX, Mark Ronson and The Jacksons just some of those supporting headliners Missy Elliott, The Chemical Brothers and Duran Duran.
Aside from awesome music and being the last hoorah before summer slips away, what makes Bestival so popular is its theme which is brought to life every year thanks to the outstanding displays of fancy dress by the thousands of people who descend on Robin Hill, on the Isle of Wight.
In fact in 2005, an attempt was made to set the Guinness World Record for the most people in fancy dress at any one event. By 2010 this was achieved, when 55,000 festival goers set a new Guinness World Record.
So you have to hand it to the Bestival-goers, every year as soon as the theme is announced you can almost hear the sewing machines hard at work, glue tops opening and glitter sprinkling.
With a reputation as one of the festival to show off your fancy dress skills and wares, intense planning always goes in to the outfits on show – think hippies, disco divas and flower power this year dude!
Though Saturday might be the official day for fancy dress, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy doing so all weekend long! And at Escapade we’ve made sure we have a wide range of 60’s and 70’s inspired costumes, wigs and accessories for you to choose from to refresh your look throughout the weekend.
And not only does Bestival encourage fancy dress, they reward it too! Yes indeed, there is a Fancy Dress Competition over the weekend with the final heat held on the Main Stage on Sunday at 3.30pm. BBC Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney will be helping the audience to decide the overall winner and it could be you!
