Those after proof that Bestival after dark is a smorgasbord of bass heavy hard hitters need look no further than Skrillex in the Big Top.

With the cleaners out to sort the damage after Pendulum all but destroy the main stage, thousands cram into the steaming Big Top to catch a glimpse of the US dubstep prodigy, or at least an earful of his tunes.

He doesn't disappoint either, mixing his own metal-dubstep with the likes of a remix inside a remix, placing Skream's version of 'In For The Kill' through the churner and stretching it out into a stinker.

Snippets of Damian Marley’s ‘Welcome To Jamrock’ give those with voices left a chance to sing, before Skrillex tests the speakers with his own ‘Ruffneck Bass’.
