The Spindle team are reporting LIVE from Bestival this weekend, so don’t expect to miss a trick thanks to our compilation of selected highlights. Reporting from backstage, in the pit and from the fields themselves, our team are sharing their experiences with the artists they brush shoulders with from both festival sites. Don’t forget to check out our social media channels for more…

Here’s what went down on Day 1.

Petite Meller’s performance at The Big Top

Spindle with Petite Meller

“I never wanted to be indie. I think my goal is to deliver my music everywhere. Now I have lots of crowds in Brazil and in Japan and I don’t want it to be like… How do you say it, there’s a word for it… esoteric.” – Petite Meller

“You don’t realise that build at your home in Liverpool because you’re always away but when you come back it’s just gotten bigger and bigger. The last gig we did at home, we were upgraded to a much bigger venue and it sold out like 3 weeks before and it was just like the ultimate gig night you would have pictured in your head. It was rammed to the ceiling.” – Mike, Clean Cut Kid
