Busta Rhymes has been added to the line-up for this years Bestival, organisers have confirmed.

Confirming the news, organisers Rob da Bank said “Woo hah people! Yes it’s true, Busta Rhymes has got you all in check and he’s coming to Bestival for his first ever UK festival appearance! I’m such a Busta fan and it’s amazing not just to see him back in the charts with another banger with ‘Thank You’ but also to know he’s getting on the ferry and bringing it to Bestival!”

Busta’s addition to the bill means the famed rapper will join the links of Outkast, Sam Smith, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Laura Mvula and Chvrches, amongst others, at the 3-day event this September.

Tickets for this year’s Bestival, whose theme has already been confirmed as ‘Desert Island Disco’, are on sale now direct from Ticketline.
