Festival 2016

The Best Team-Ups At Bestival

The Bestival lineup is so huge, it's probably best to see as many artists as possible at any given time.

These are the team ups and B2Bs you need to see

Usually when we talk about a festival line up being 'massive' we're talking metaphorically. But when we use it to describe Bestival, we're talking both metaphorically and literally. Have you seen the size of that lineup? It took us over five minutes just to read through it, never mind take it all in.

The lineup is so densely populated, that in order to maximise your Bestival experience, it's probably a good idea to see as many artists at one time as possible. Luckily their are a lot of team ups, B2Bs and group sessions this year, so we've decided to pick out our favourite group offerings to help you out.

Purple Rave

Festival bossman Rob da Bank reunites with Tayo for a second tribute to the purple one and this time they've invited the first lady of jack, Heidi along for the ride. Giving that we tragically lost Prince earlier this year, expect this to be a poignant, but pumping, tribute to one of the greatest to ever do it.

Oneman B2B My Nu Leng

If ecclectic bass-orientated selections is what you're seeking, you need to see Oneman team up with my the My Nu Leng lads for what promises to be a blistering B2B. Both acts are riding high this year - with My Nu Leng mixing Fabriclive 86 and Oneman justa about to complete a ten week residency at xoyo. Be sure to bring your bass face as this one's going to be big.

Eskimo Dance

With grime once again dominating the UK music scene, what better way to get reacquainted with the classics than an all star lineup assembled by one of the origianl greats. Though Wiley's track record of turning up to gigs is a little lacking, with Section Boyz, Big Narstie, Newham Generals, Chip, P Money, Elf Kid, Jamms and Maximum on hand, there's more than enough reason to put this in your schedule.

Shy FX's Party On The Moon

Shy FX has assembled a crack team of eclectic artists for what promises to be one of the parties of the summer. Where else can you see Peckham MC Giggs, disco funk all stars, The Fat Back Band and UK Bass don, Redlight all share a stage? Nowhere, that's where.

Sink The Pink Presents No Limits With Candi Staton & Livin' Joy

One of London's most notoriously hedonistic parties is bringing true disco queen, Candi Staton, together with 90s house royalty Livin' Joy, for what could be one of the most fun couple of hours ever staged.

Bodhi Presents: Axel Bowman, Bodhi & Romare

If slightly cooler, more forward thinking music is your bag, you could do a hell of a lot worse than catching Cardiff duo Bodhi teaming up with underground hero Axel Bowman and Ninja Tune protege, Romare. This is guaranteed vibes.

Melé And Monki's NRG Flash

One of dance music's power couples, Liverpool selector Melé and Radio One favourite Monki will once again be teaming up for their NRG Flash concept. Expect big drops and bucket loads of energy.
