Also just unveiled are the Pants Of Poverty people, who are aiming to revive the Make Poverty History message by getting everyone to don their briefs, as part of their mission to rid the world of bad pants.
Bestival spokesman Bruce Hay said: "You can pant with them too by coming to a fashion show at their stall, "panticipating" in the Best pants section of the fancy dress competition or joining them in the world record attempt on Sunday for the most people ever gathered in just their pants!"
