Bestival Fancy Dress 2014

Bestival is one on the biggest dates on the calendar in the fancy dress world. The costume themed music festival that emanates from Robin Hill Adventure Park each September is always a great opportunity to see live music and wander about for a weekend wearing a crazy costume and not look out of place in the slightest.

The year the theme is desert island disco, boasting all things South Atlantic, desert island and tribal with an original dose of disco for good measure. Pick out your costume nice and early because before you know it Bestival will be looming and the ferry will be leaving!



Here's one that's perfect for the desert island celebrations. Cute and appealing, this one looks gorgeous!

The Luscious Luau costume includes a bright and colourful floral print dress with a green grass style skirt.

Mo Town

Fully embracing the disco theme, we think this costume is ideal with its almost Aztec themed colour scheme.

Our Mo Town Boy Band costume includes a pair of multicoloured trousers, waistcoat, matching jacket and a belt.

Beach Beauty

Beach Beauty

Ideal for the warm climates and demands of the feverish disco dancing that will be required this September, this outfit will keep you cool while looking cool.

The Hawaiian Beauty costume includes a red and white floral patterned dress with a frilled hemline.

Beach Hunk

Here you go chaps, a matching beach get-up that looks as awesome as you could possibly want.

Our Hawaiian Hunk costume includes red and white floral patterned shirt and a matching pair of shorts.

Desert Island Disco Fancy Dress

We've been hearing about your amazing, daring and bold costume ideas on Twitter. Here's a few outfits that we think would fit in nicely with the desert island disco fancy dress theme. Take a look, which is your favourite?

Hawaiian Shirts

One item that is essential on a desert island is a bright and colourful Hawaiian shirt. Here's our pick of shirts that embrace the colour, imagination and essence of the theme.

Grass Skirts

Choosing one of our colourful grass skirts is a great way to take part in the desert island disco theme at this year's Bestival. They are pretty freaking awesome as you can wear your boots underneath unimpeded and still look great. You can find more grass skirts in our Hawaiian costumes category.

Bestival 2014

The Winner of best major festival in 2012 at the UK Festival Awards, Bestival will officially begin when the camp-sites open on midday Thursday 4th September and the festivities will invariably rage on with everyone clad in their Bestival costumes until the aforementioned camping areas close at 4pm on Monday 8th September.

This year's Bestival will feature a Roller Disco, the Wall of Death, Freak Shows, Helter Skelter, and the return of the Inflatable Church, plus, the always popular Comedy & Cabaret Tent. We're personally most excited about the Pink Flamingo Cocktail Bar.

This year Bestival is adding on a £1 charity donation onto all Bestival tickets. The money raised will go directly to the Isle Of Wight Youth Trust.
