According to the music festival’s director and partner Ben Turner, Bestival got its start as a series of parties created by BBC Radio DJ Rob Da Bank called Sunday Best, which took place at a tea shop in London, UK. Da Bank would invite “legends of our nightlife world and DJs to play for nothing” and the audience would pay a mere 99p (.99 cents) per person to get in, says Turner.
