IT MIGHT be sold out, but Bestival fans without a ticket will still be able to see some of the show thanks to a UK first with YouTube.
From Friday to Sunday next week the action on the Main Stage and the Big Top at the Isle of Wight event will be screened on the Bestival's dedicated YouTube channel www.youtube.com/user/bestivaltv
After the event, individual songs will be available on demand for 90 days.
Bestival curator Rob da Bank said: "I've been watching festivals such as Coachella and Tomorrowland on YouTube and loving the futuristic new angle on showing festivals in a different light via a medium that nearly everyone in the music and festival worlds is tuned into.
"We're really pleased that Bestival is the first UK festival to go down this route."
Event director Ben Turner added: "Following our pioneering coverage in 3D last year, Bestival is proud to now be the first UK festival to live stream to YouTube.
"This type of music and festival is being under-served by mainstream TV in the UK, and we believe that it’s an important step forward for music coverage overall.
"We also believe this approach is reflective of how today's audiences want to consume music at home."
Patrick Walker, Senior Director of YouTube Music, Europe, Middle East & Africa said: "As the premiere destination for music lovers worldwide, YouTube has been working hard to expand our offering of live gigs and festivals to satisfy the hunger for great original content.
"We're delighted to announce a partnership with Bestival, whose dream line-up of musicians including Florence + the Machine, The xx, Emeli Sande and New Order, will now be made available to anyone, anywhere with an Internet connection."
