Bestival releases iPhone app

Bestival organisers have released an iPhone application to help ticket holders get the most out of the event.

The programme features a site map, a feed to Rob da Bank’s Twitter to keep up to date with what the head honcho is up to over the weekend as well as The Soundboard – which features snippets from da Bank and Beardyman that users can get creative with.

The app will also have The Bestival Decider on it, which helps users decide what to do over the weekend on the roll of a dice.

Speaking about the application, Rob da Bank said: "'3,2,1…. blast off!  Yes, we're ready to take Bestival dancing, kicking and screaming into the 21st century technological cyberspace with our own amazing application for the i-Phone. Check out Beardyman at his best with some of his finest imitations of a major artists, and throw the Bestival dice to help guide you to what's going down at any given moment."

12 Bestival-goers are also set to start their swim across the Solent from Gosport to the Isle of Wight today (10 September) to raise money for charity.

Those taking part will be raising money for the Island Youth Water Sports Centre, Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline and Imibala.
