Bestival will be heading to North America, landing in Toronto, Canada for the first ever Bestival abroad on June 12th- 13th 2015 at Hanlan's Point Beach, Toronto Island.  Bestival UK has been going for strong for the past 12 years, winning a multitude of awards. The original boutique festival attracts 50,000 fans each year and known for its creative vision and eclectic music including previous headliners Stevie Wonder, Florence & The Machine, The Cure and Kraftwerk. Bestival curator Rob da Bank says: “We have waited 12 years to decide to launch another Bestival outside of the UK and our beloved Bestival, on the Isle of Wight, which has grown into one of the most important festivals in the global calendar. It took a really special city, and an even more exciting site, with Toronto and Toronto Island, to make us take the leap. So, the waiting is over and we are so excited to be launching in North America in June, with a classic Bestival line-up waiting to thrill, intrigue and party! I’d like to thank all our partners, friends, new and old, and supporters in Toronto, for making this happen. We cannot wait!”
