Last week Bestival announced this year’s theme along with Friday headliners OutKast. Today, they revealed some more names: Foals (Saturday Headliners), Beck (Thursday Headliner), Disclosure (Friday Second), Major Lazer (Sunday Second), London Grammar, Wild Beasts, Sam Smith, Caribou, Clean Bandit, CHVRCHES, and Laura Mvula.
Hey ya! By the power invested in me as chief Bestival booker, I’m pretty darn excited to announce that OutKast are headlining Bestival this year! We’ve fought hard to get the recently reunited legendary hip-hop duo onto the ferry… and it’s no ordinary ferry this year as Bestival goes Desert Island Disco for 2014… Palm trees, grass skirts and mirrorballs are the order of the day. It truly is gonna be the Bestival yet!
Yes folks, HMS Bestival has set sail once more and we have finally landed back on the Isle of Wight for our 11th instalment – a Desert Island Disco. Foals were voted best live act of last year and I’m delighted they’ll be headlining the Saturday night – there’s no better indie guitar band in the UK right now. Also donning a grass skirt and mirrorball is a total icon of popular music and one of my favourite songwriters, Beck, plus disco darlings Disclosure, Diplo and his Major Lazer crew and all the hottest new bands from London Grammar to Clean Bandit. So get out of your deckchair and get ready to disco, my friends!
Bestival 2014 takes place between Thursday 4th and Sunday 7th September 2013 at Robin Hill Country Park near Newport on the lovely Isle of Wight.
