Following their triumphant mud-soaked Glastonbury activities featuring Editors, Four Tet, Erol Alkan and The Filthy Dukes amongst others, Adventures In The Beetroot Field will bring their Electronic Rock 'n' Rave Circus to The Bestival.

People who like a heavy kick drum with their guitars and a bleep with their bass should gird their loins for the musical mayhem that’s sure to ensue courtesy of The Beetroot Field at Bestival, which takes place on September 9-11 at Country Park, Newport Isle Of Wight.

The Beetroot Field folk have curated a forward thinking line up of the most exciting bands and DJs around including guests The Rakes, British Sea Power, Clor, Long Cut, White Rose Movement and Erol Alkan. Chief AITBF residents The Filthy Dukes, (fresh from tearing Fabric’s roof off at their Kill Em All residency) are joined by Simian Mobile Disco, and Eat Your Own Ears DJs under the big top.

There will also be the usual Beetroot Field side show attractions, such as Giant Gnomes, a Town Crier, a small Enchanted Forest, The Beetroot Field Barn and Pastoral Visual Delights – we’re promised an experience we’ll never forget.
