Bestival truly is the gift that keeps on giving. Whether it’s the list of acts which consistently seems to grow and grow right up until the gates open on Thursday morning, or the fact that they’ve now added a 7m high Kanye West head to the decorations (genuinely, that isn’t a joke), the Rob Da Bank party is a fitting send off to the festival season.
Now the guys over at Bestival have just announced a split of parties which are sure to keep fans spreading glitter and colour across the weekend, in the form of Desperado’s Clubhouse.
Rebooting three legendary club nights over four days with original residents in an innovative, interactive house structure, Desperados Clubhouse will give a whole new generation a tantalising taste of some truly vintage rave behaviour.
Kicking things off, did somebody say acid house? On Thursday 7th September, seminal acid emporium, Shoom are in the house with sets from Lone, Pete Heller and Shoom founder Danny Rampling.
Friday 8th sees Camden’s finest Flashback To: AITBF in action with sets from Crispin Dior going back to back with Ben Rymer, the long-lasting pleasures of HAAi, a rare DJ set from analogue techno overlords Paranoid London and non-stop party machine Jackmaster. While Saturday 9th sees the AITBF crew at it with Ben Rymer, Crispin Dior, and Bestival stalwarts Hot Chip hitting the decks.
Wrapping up the club classic vibes on Sunday 10th our very own forebear Sunday Best makes a triumphant return ramping up the last night madness with slo-mo disco kings Wayward, genre weaving genius Klose One, Sunday Best chief Rob da Bank and the raw energy of Paul Woolford in his Special Request guise all hitting the ones and twos.
Expect to see a real party atmosphere at each one of these, not just artist’s playing one after the other. It’s all about the encompassing vibe and atmosphere as a collective, the theme that this individual parties bring.
