This week Mixcloud looks back on an amazing four days of radio from the best festival of the year. Bestival Radio will be uploading new shows from that wonderful weekend, and reminding you of the last days of summer 2013.
They started of the action traditionally with the Thursday breakfast show with the right honorable Rev. Milo Speedwagon easing in the festivals’s early arrivals with traffic, weather and that unique brand of Speedwagon joie de vivre that only the man himself can provide.
Highlights from the rest of the day included the mighty Mixhell and Wall of Sound’s Mark Jones
Fridays line up featured more amazing artists such as Roska & Jamie George, Room Service, Jagwa Ma, Prince Fatty, Senseless Records and more.
Saturday was one of the strongest musical line-ups in the station’s history. From Artwork to Franz Ferdinand, Simian Mobile Disco to Hot Natured it was a huge slice of the best Bestival had to offer.
As the evening kicked in Franz Ferdinand dropped in for an unexpected but amazing deep dub and reggae selection before a quick trip over to play one of the headline sets on the main stage.
One of the Saturday night highlights came from the awesome duo of Hot Natured and Jamie Jones, who romped through an hour of deep disco and house deliciousness all from a seated position, vibes.
On Sunday, one of our own Mixcloud team members Tayo, who provided one of the more memorable visuals of the weekend by rowing an inflatable boat around backstage rocking a ‘Coming To America 2013’ African prince look, delivered one of the highlight morning shows.
Jesse Rose kicked off the customary Sunday night rave up with style, culminating with ZTG from Teed dropping techno and electro bombs while people tried to guess who was inside the giant furry ﬁsh costume. Then it was over to a Bestival Radio all-
star back to back session until the early hours.
All in all 2013 was another amazing sail through the airwaves of the Isle of Wight and beyond. Catch all the shows archived on Mixcloud at http://www.mixcloud.com/bestivalradio and video highlights, pictures and more over here: bestivalradio.tumblr.com.
