Once again we have another Bestival under our belt. Now in its 9th year – meaning it’s also our 9th Bestival – this year’s monster headlines were Florence and the Machine, New Order and Stevie Wonder.
We were blessed with sunshine for our slot straight after Sister Sledge and made for a HOT show! Miguelito was recovering from a dance injury so was brought onto stage on a throne by 6 men in kilts.
The audience was big (always great), smiling (amazing) and up for the party (the best).
Opening with some tracks from the album, we were joined half way through the set by one of our favourite singers of all time, Omar. After a rendition of “Ohms” a track featuring Omar on the chorus, he blessed us with a performance of “There’s nothing like this”.
The set came to a climax with a breakdance performance from Miguel’s Habanero School of Performing Arts.
Right from the beginning to the fireworks after Stevie Wonder on Sunday, all I experienced was good vibes – people helping, looking out for each other, being polite, and smiling all the way through. That’s what makes Bestival such a pleasure to do every year!
