Organisers of Britain's Bestival music event are setting up a fund for the revellers who were injured in a coach crash after the gig earlier this month (Sep12).

A bus transporting more than 50 festival-goers home from the event crashed into a tree on 10 September, killing the driver and two passengers and injuring everyone else on board.

Many of the victims were seriously hurt and are still in hospital receiving treatment, and Bestival bosses announced on Tuesday (18Sep12) they are setting up a fund to help those affected by the tragedy.

In a post on Twitter.com, promoter Robert Gorham writes, "We will be launching a Bestival fund for those affected by the crash in (the) next 24 hours... and appreciate how many people wanna help/donate."

Bestival takes place over three days on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England. This year's headliners were Stevie Wonder, Florence + the MAChine, and New Order.
