Bestival Camping – Swim with your tent?

We are coming to the end of the festival season in the UK and this weekend is Bestival which takes place on the Isle of White. This year’s artists include Kraftwork, Doves, Lilly Allen, Elbow and Little Boots who will all be performing at the festival which is in it’s sixth year.

Getting to the festival is slightly different from your average festival as you need to get the boat over to the island from the south coast. There is the option to swim over this year with 12 people taking up the challenge.

They set off on this Thursday and with help from the local lifeguards team and will raise money for three charities Imibala, St Catherine’s and Christopher’s Smile. Only 12 swimmers can compete each year but places are open for next years event.

They won’t swim with their camping gear but if you do need to cross a river many backpacks with a waterproof bivi bag will keep your goodies dry and afloat.
