UK's Bestival to be streamed live on YouTube

  • Bestival is to become the first UK festival to be streamed live on YouTube.

    The Isle of Wight music festival has tied up up with the video sharing website to show acts such as Florence + The Machine as they perform on stage.

    The event runs between September 6-9 at Robin Hill Country Park.

    "I've been watching festivals such as Coachella and Tomorrowland on YouTube and loving the futuristic new angle on showing festivals in a different light via a medium that nearly everyone in the music and festival worlds is tuned in to,” said Bestival curator and BBC Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank.

    Songs will be available on demand for 90 days after the event on YouTube.
