Always at the forefront of the festival experience and new technology, Bestival is once again pushing the boundaries as we announces that, for the first time, the festival will be live streamed to the Bestival YouTube channel for fans around the world to enjoy, in what is a UK festival exclusive.

The live stream is available on the festival’s official YouTube channel – – across all internet-connected devices and it will cover both the Main Stage and Big Top on September 7th, 8th and 9th.

With what is one of the strongest line-ups in Bestival’s nine year history, music fans will be able to watch performances in real time, from wherever you are, as long as you have an internet connection, including headline performances from Florence + the Machine and New Order, a UK festival exclusive appearance from The xx and live sets from Friendly Fires, Two Door Cinema Club, Emeli Sande, Bat for Lashes, Orbital, Miike Snow, Azealia Banks and many more.

The detailed daily program of the live stream is available on the Bestival YouTube channel. Follow #bestivallive on Twitter for all the latest details and to join the conversation.

Once Bestival comes to a close, individual songs from acts will be available on-demand for the next 90 days on the Bestival YouTube channel.

“I’ve been watching festivals such as Coachella and Tomorrowland on YouTube and loving the futuristic new angle on showing festivals in a different light via a medium that nearly everyone in the music and festival worlds is tuned into. We’re really pleased that Bestival is the first UK festival to go down this route”
