Rob da Bank, organiser of the Isle of Wight's Bestival, has revealed that 80s sensation the Village People have agreed to judge the festival's fancy dress competition.

The competition theme for this year’s festival, held from 8-11 September at Robin Hill Country Park, is ‘Rock Stars, Pop Stars and Divas’.

Rob da Bank said: “I can’t think of a more suitable act to judge this year’s Fancy Dress competition than the Village People!

“They practically invented the genre so prepare to put some effort in to wow the cowboy, impress the policeman or win over the Red Indian with your best Rock Star, Pop Star or Diva.”

The festival is set to welcome The Cure, Pendulum, Magnetic Man and Primal Scream, plus hundreds of other acts.
