Rob da Bank has announced that he will publish a book celebrating the world of music festivals, ‘Rob da Bank’s A-Z Of Festivals: My Festival Life In 26 Letters’, on 1 May via Boxtree. In the book, the Bestival organiser and Radio 1 DJ will talk about festivals from around the world, with illustrations by his wife, Josie da Bank.

Rob da Bank told CMU: “I spend approximately 12 hours a day 365 days a year thinking about festivals – when I wake up, while I’m changing nappies, if I’m watching the box and before I go to bed. It’s got beyond a joke but I can’t leave the blasted things alone. I haven’t been to anywhere near enough of them around the world but I do know a lot about them so I decided to write a book with some beautifully eccentric illustrations from my wife Josie”.

Editorial Director at Boxtree, Ingrid Connell added: “We are hugely excited to be publishing this really lovely book by Rob, a key and respected expert in his field (please excuse the pun!). It’s going to be a beautiful package and great fun to promote to all those thousands and thousands of festival-goers the world over”.
