Bestival and New Order Support the Youth Trust
We are delighted and somewhat humbled to be so whole heartedly supported by the Bestival team and to learn that the New Order performance at Bestival 2012 is to be released as a CD, with the profits coming into the Youth Trust to support the work we do with young people. We are deeply grateful of the support from Bestival and from New Order – we thank them both.
Speaking recently, New Order’s drummer Stephen Morris said“ We played at so many festivals in 2012, and our highlights were, without doubt, the last two in the UK, Portmeirion and Bestival. Saturday night was fancy-dress night, and Gillian enjoyed dressing up in her peacock head-dress. This charity release is a special way to mark the Bestival experience, and we’re thrilled to be working with Rob and Josie’s team to raise money for such a worthy cause on the Island. It’s great to give something back, and also to give such a brilliant crowd something to remember the show by. And if you weren’t there, buy the CD and enjoy the experience that way!”
Rob da Bank: “As part of our Live From Bestival series we needed to choose an act from 2012 that nailed it for not only us at Bestival HQ and the crowd but also would come across as perfectly on a CD. New Order fit that bill and then some. I was lucky enough to be side of stage for the start of the gig, in the middle of a pogoing crowd for much of the set and then back onstage for the finale. The whole band looked like they were loving it and the crowd was vintage Bestival – appreciative, raucous and dancing like maniacs! Thanks so much to New Order for supporting our charity cause as sales from this recording will really help young people on the Isle Of Wight.”
