Chance to see acts compete for Bestival bill

Bestival curator Rob da Bank will be one of the judges at next week's event, when Isle of Wight acts will compete to perform at the festival.

TOP musicians, DJs and spoken word artists on the Isle of Wight will compete on stage next Thursday in a Bestival competition final.

The free to attend event takes place at Northwood House, when acts will perform in front of a panel of judges for the chance to perform at Bestival in September.

Finalists include the bands Auris Acumen, Badow, Charming, Duveaux, Pleasureade, The Lion and The Wolf (also known as Thomas George) and Wight Hot Pipes.

Hadda, Kris Pixel, Oz White, Patriot, Scotty the Yeah and Vitamin G will compete in the DJ category and spoken word artists, competing for a slot in the Amphitheatre, are Alice Smith, Jeni Law and Lady Robinson.

The best choir, The Dollymopps, has already been chosen by Bestival curator Rob da Bank and will perform in the Big Top.

The event starts at 7pm.
