Bestival

When: September 10th-13th

Where: Isle of Wight, England

Why Go: Including the word "best" in a festival's name is a bold move, but this September soiree has been doing everything it can to live up to that promise since it began in 2004. Originally intended as an off-shoot of record label Sunday Best, the four-day event is a perfect end-of-summer dance party that blends tried-and-true legends (Duran Duran, the Chemical Brothers) with the most exciting up-and-comers (FKA Twigs, Charli XCX).

Must-See Acts: Charli XCX, Duran Duran, Jurassic 5, FKA Twigs, the Chemical Brothers, Girlpool, Future Islands, Annie Mac, Flying Lotus, Tame Impala, Guy Gerber, Action Bronson, Neneh Cherry, Fat White Family, Young Fathers
