BESTIVAL curator Rob da Bank has sent his condolences to the families and friends of people involved in a tragic coach crash on the A3.
Three people including the coach driver were killed when the coach, which was returning to Merseyside from the Isle of Wight event, ploughed into a tree on Monday night (10) near Hindhead.
Those who died have been named as driver Colin Daubey, 63, Michael Molloy, 18 and Kerry Ogden, 23.
Police believe the 52 seater coach may have had 53 people, including the driver, on board at the time of the accident.
Rob said: "Myself and the Bestival team want to personally send our condolences and heartfelt sorrow to the families and friends of everyone affected by the coach crash after Bestival.
"We are devastated that this has happened at the end of what was hopefully a joyous weekend of music and fun for most and leaves a shadow over all of us.
"Bestival is a festival that thrives on positive music and good vibes, so this has been a terrible shock. We're in constant touch with Surrey Police and are assisting in any way we can."
*A Surrey police spokeswoman said today (Thursday) that ten people were still in hospital following the A3 coach collision.
"Five people remain in a serious condition as a result of injuries sustained in the collision on Monday night and one man, a 21-year-old, is described as having suffered life changing injuries," said the spokeswoman.
