Following various teasers, Bestival organisers have announced the event’s return for this summer, confirming their ‘Summer of Love’ theme.

Unveiled moments ago, the announcement was released with the following message – “Hear this as the first of the whispers… the festival returns to its roots. A salute to the original muses: Music, Freedom, Peace, Love and Euphoria. In the year 2015, Bestival acknowledges its ancestry with the theme, ‘Bestival’s Summer of Love’.”

Bestival’s curator Rob da Bank said: “Our theme for 2015 is the Summer of Love… it’s a simple theme and hopefully one that’s easy to embrace. It’s largely a positive reaction to all the bad news and downright evil going on in the world. We’re not hiding our heads in the sand and pretending everything’s rosy and laid-back but we can, as a big family of 50,000 people, come together, listen to music, party and spread love, even if it’s just for the weekend. That has always been at the heart of Bestival and its year-round community. Hate out, love in!”

Set to take place on 10-13th September, the first full Bestival announcement will take place next Thursday (12th February), which will also include the confirmation of the first two headliners. Tickets will also go on-sale the same day, starting from £130.

Bestival organisers also released a short teaser to celebrate the announcement…. roll on the biggest closing party of the summer!!
