BESTIVAL 2015 Costume Festival

Festivals and costume parties have become synonymous in the U.K. but it hasn't always been the case. Ten years ago BESTIVAL challenged its audience to attempt a world record for the biggest ever dressing up party and, with the help of a willing crowd of super-creative party loving people, they  changed the face of festival culture forever, sparking a huge UK-wide renaissance in what they call fancy dress. Now, as the BESTIVAL story unfolds into new worlds, they are coming to Toronto, and they need you to help them make this the mother of all parties.
BESTIVAL curator Rob da Bank says: “We do love dressing up at Bestival and have seen the most incredible creations over the last dozen years at Bestival UK. There’s something about dressing up and letting your hair down that seems to make people drop their guard and just escape for a while. So it’s not about a plastic Elvis quiff and microphone from a cheap store, it’s more about wearing something you wouldn’t wear anywhere else, but kinda want to anyway! Equally if it’s not your thing come as you are….just come :)”
BESTIVAL Costume Party

 Over the years BESTIVAL’s themes have become world renowned, never failing to fire up the crowd’s imagination. From Pirates to Outer Space and HMS Bestival to the Desert Island Disco, rallying 55,000 fashionistas in the art of dressing up, they are the catalyst for incredible audience creativity, and a weekend of un-self-conscious joy, forging a shared experience that is truly unique to the event. For our first-ever foray abroad we thought we’d give Canadian Bestivalites free rein to get those creative juices flowing. The reason we wanted to come to Toronto in the first place is because we know how original and inventive you are; it’s open house on fancy dress, so show us what you’ve got!

But be prepared because it’s not just BESTIVAL-goers who push the boat out, the performers love a bit of a costume party, too. From Mumford & Sons’ fetching musketeer look, and Lily Allens glittering Barbarella, to Florence Welch’s space age flapper, the all-embracing love for costume-based high-jinx takes the festival vibe to another level of unadulterated hedonism that can’t be underestimated. Music festivals in North America see an abundance of their own kind of “fancy dress,” with dance music culture allowing music lovers to express their individualities through eccentric outfits. Embrace the BESTIVAL costume party and get creative! Be whoever you want to be! Take a look at some images from previous years in the UK here: http://bestival.ca/photos/costume-gallery/photo/1
