The Best of Bestival

Who’d want to miss these two lovely ladies? No, this is just one lovely lady… more on the other after the break.


Bestival looks like losing not a whiff of its supercredibility this summer (it’s already holder of like the Best Medium Size Festival Held in a Venue That’s Not A Superstore Car Park or something), headlining the fabulous Gossip, starring Beth Ditto (have you ever seen a better picture of her than this one on the cover of Diva mag btw?). Also on the live line-up, one of our favourite singers like ever…

Marlena Shaw! She of ‘Woman of the Ghetto’, that fabulous ‘Go Away Little Boy’ with the long spoken intro and albums like Who Is This Bitch, Anyway? She is – quite simply – the best live performer ever (except for maybe Kate Bush and Madonna, but that was a bigger production). Funny with lots of chat (don’t dare heckle – she will have your internal organs for jewellery), she’s the only reason we can think of we’d hang around in a field with a beaker of warm lager. This is what she looks like…

You can tell, can't you?

Bestival is on the 7th, 8th and 9th September on the Isle of Wight, so you could get some nice coloured sands in a test tube for your mum while you’re there (it’s the IoW speciality!) Snap up tickets here.
