“We had such a great time in the Isle of Wight at Bestival that we wanted to release this show as a way of thanking fans and islanders alike. Bestival is the best!” Robert Smith

Sunday Best Recordings are thrilled to announce the release of The Cure: Bestival Live 2011, a live recording of the iconic band’s fabulous two and a half hour set performed at Bestival 2011. All profits from the sale of the album will go to The Isle of Wight Youth Trust.

The double album, which is split over two CDs and also available as a digital download is made up of 32 Cure classics, including “The Lovecats”, “The Caterpillar”, “Close To Me”, “Friday I’m In Love”, “Lullaby”, “The Hungry Ghost”, “The End Of The World”, “Just Like Heaven”, “Grinding Halt”, “Jumping Someone Else’s Train” and “Boys Don’t Cry”.

“The Cure pulled off the epitome of the “festival set” akin to Bowie at Glastonbury 2000 or Macca at Glasto ’04, and every bit as legendary” The Guardian

It’s available to buy now via Amazon / Play / HMV (2xCD) and iTunes from the bargain price of £7.99, and also in all good record stores.

All profits from the sale of this album will go to the Isle of Wight Youth Trust (Reg Charity No: 1087163). The Isle of Wight Youth Trust is a charitable, independent and professional organisation offering counseling, advice, information and support services to young people aged 25 and under on the Isle of Wight (the home of Bestival) and, in some cases, their parents or carers. The Youth Trust has been working on the Isle of Wight for 27 years and has made a positive input to the wellbeing of people locally.
