Watch: The Best Of Bestival 2012

Written by Kiel Egging on September 10, 2012

The Isle of Wight was a party zone on the weekend as Bestival took over the UK island for its annual three days of fun and festivities.

The festival is the brainchild of DJ and record producer Rob Da Bank and is an off-shoot of his Sunday Best record label and club nights. This year’s Bestival was headlined by the likes of Stevie Wonder, Florence and the Machine, and New Order.

It also made history by being the first UK festival to be streamed live in its entirety through YouTube.

As expected, a truckload of fan-filmed videos from the event have emerged on the web – so Music Feeds has sifted through them all and found the best quality ones for your enjoyment.

First up, we have Florence and the Machine, who headlined Friday night’s proceedings. Naturally, their hit Dog Days Are Over got one hell of a singalong.

New Order slayed the crowd as Saturday night headliners – especially with their timeless classic Love Will Tear Us Apart:

Unfortunately, no one seems to have filmed Sunday night’s headliner, Stevie Wonder. But, there’s a small snippet of what looks like him in this predominately crowd shots-filled highlights clip:

Here’s a stack of videos from some of the other quality acts who played on various days and nights throughout Bestival.
