Early bird tickets for Bestival 2009 will go on sale from midday this Friday (12 September).

Fans of the boutique bash will be able to grab tickets for next year event at £120 for adults and £60 for 13-15 year olds.

Next year's edition will take place at Robin Hill Country Park, Newport on the Isle of Wight from 4-6 September.

Speaking about this year's wet festival, organiser Rob Da Bank said: "Wow what a weekend – in more ways than one! The mud of the Somme with the spirit of Dunkirk as one Isle of Wight wag told me over the weekend.

"I take my hat off to you one and all. And we've already had literally hundreds of requests for tickets for next year and so are delighted to be going on sale again this Friday! Come rain or shine, but preferably shine, see you next year!"

The festival is three days of eclectic music, comedy and theatre with festival-goers encouraged to dress up and take part in the annual fancy-dress parade. My Bloody Valentine, Amy Winehouse, Underworld and many more appeared in 2008.
