Bestival Pictures: Festival Goers Descend On Isle Of Wight To See Elton John, Snoop Dogg And Fatboy Slim

Thousands of people have begun to arrive at Bestival, the last big music event of the summer, for Rob da Bank's festival's 10th year celebrations.

Rocking up for the three-day music event headlined by Fatboy Slim, Snoop Dogg and Sir Elton John, music lovers were greeted by blazing sunshine at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight.

But while the festival is having a bright beginning, the rest of the weekend is forecast to be plagued by rain.

On Friday night 'Praise You' DJ Fatboy Slim will throw a huge 10th anniversary birthday bash.

He told The Huffington Post UK: "It’s an absolute honour to return for this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times."

The big beat Brit Award-winning DJ will play an exclusive set, which he's dubbed 'Fatboy Slim's Bestival Birthday Bash', complete with mega-hits from 'Everybody Needs A 303' to 'Star 69 (What The F*ck)'.
