When: September 5 to 8
Where: Robin Hill County Park, Isle of Wight
Why: It’s the tenth anniversary of the festival that single handedly kick-started the trend of fancy dress as festival-appropriate (Kate Moss lookalikes being the first). Attendees made it into the Guinness Book of Records in 2005 for the most number of people wearing fancy dress at any given event. This year’s theme is HMS Bestival. Very nautical but nice. DJ and record producer Rob da Bank and his wife Josie have curated a barnstormer of a line up. Elton John and Snoop Dogg are headlining on Saturday and Sunday respectively. We'd better start planning our outfits now.
How much: From £180, available at Ticketweb
