Feeling Gloomy isn't normally something you'd associate with Bestival. Feeling deliriously happy, yes, feeling slightly silly dressed as a giant banana, most probably, feeling like I'm about to explode with excitement, most certainly, but 'gloomy', not likely, unless you've not got a ticket and are stuck at home getting manically enthusiastic text messages from your mates at 3am in the Bollywood Field.
Unless, that is, Feeling Gloomy refers to "the UK's only club night that brings you the saddest, most melancholy music known to man" (in a good way, of course), as it does in the case of this exclusive Besti-mix, compiled by Feeling Gloomy's resident DJs Leonard and Cliff, who'll be bringing their tear-jerking, hip-swinging 'poignant' platters to Bestival this year.
Something a little bit different, with suitably satirical chat from the Gloomy boys themselves - this mix of weepy pop classics and heart-tugging festival faves might just have you crying with delight...
