Missy Elliott and The Jacksons close Bestival 2015

Monday, September 14, 2015 - 10:27

BESTIVAL 2015 was brought to a close by disco and hip hop heroes last night (Sunday).

Rapper and producer extraordinaire Missy Elliott delivered a fiery medley of songs from her platinum-filled back catalogue, before a stunning fireworks show. 

Appropriately, shortly after drizzle began to soak the audience, she warmed proceedings up with her groundbreaking 1997 hit, The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).

Before that, The Jacksons gave the crowd plenty to sing along to, with hit after hit including renditions of Blame It On The Boogie, Can You Feel It and Want You Back.

The four brothers from Indiana mirrored their 70s choreography as archive footage played alongside their energetic live performance.

They ended their set saying "we'd like to thank our little brother who's here in spirit, Michael".

Earlier in the day, Bestival also unofficially broke the world record for the largest number of buskers singing one song in one place.

Four hundred and forty six people gathered in the main arena to sing and play All You Need Is Love on a motley collection of instruments, in a bid to raise money for Syrian refugees.

Local music was represented from Island mainstays such as The Ohmz, Polar Maps and the Happy Skifflers.
