Bestival Starts On The Isle Of Wight
Bestival will see 55,000 music lovers descend on the Isle of Wight this weekend.
Elton John, Sussex's Tom Odell and Fatboy Slim are all performing.
Snoop Dogg will be on the main stage on Saturday night after ten. He'll follow the likes of The Roots, Rudimental and Franz Ferdinand.
The theme of this year's four day event is HMS Bestival.
Organiser Rob Da Bank spoke to Capital about why he chose it. He said:
''We're on an island surrounded by water and everyone has to get a boat to get here, so it just seemed like an obvious one.
It's also one with loads of different angles on it - you can be a sea creature, you can be a Captain Birdseye or you can be a mermaid''.
With the event into its tenth year, Da Bank expects it to be extra special, saying:
'We've sold out again which is incredible news and everyone's on course for a cracking weekend.''
