Bestival reveal 'Summer of Love' theme for 2015

Bestival hoping to ‘smash’ the world record for busking

Anyone remember the huge disco ball that appeared during Chic’s headline performance on the final night of last year’s Bestival?

If you don’t, head over to our review from last year to find out exactly what went down, but basically it was all part of a rather ambitious Guinness World Record attempt that Rob Da Bank and co absolutely nailed.

And it appears this time around, Bestival is again intent on marking its permanent place in history with a bid to host the largest gathering of buskers of all time.

Organiser Rob Da Bank says: “We do love breaking records at Bestival, but this one isn’t all about a world record… It’s about a huge Summer of Love sing-along.

“Our mates CoCo and The Butterfields suggested it would be a cool idea to do a little jam session and bring busking to Bestival, but with your help this could turn into the biggest busk ever! So dust off your tambourine, polish your triangle and pack your banjo for September”.
