Wiley, Loyle Carner, Twin Atlantic, Fatman Scoop and Nick Mulvey are among the names added to this year’s Bestival following a massive expansion of the already-packed lineup.
Set to be headlined by the already-announced Pet Shop Boys, The xx and A Tribe Called Quest, other notable names for this summer’s closing party include UKG heroes Heartless Crew, Oxide & Neutrino and DJ Luck & MC Neat. Meanwhile Heidi, Monki and Mele have been added to the DJ roster, whilst the House Gospel Choir will be equally unmissable.
Of the new names, founder Rob da Bank says:
“Bestival’s formula is pretty simple – we like you guys having fun, exploring new ideas and listening to amazing bands and DJs in a massive field or forest or both at the same time whilst dressed as a multi-coloured gherkin. If you like the sound of that you’re on board already, but if you need any more persuasion, we are proud to announce some mega new acts for Besti, repping the best in grime with Wiley, AJ Tracey and 67, through indie and rock with Blossoms and Twin Atlantic, all topped off with some good old fashioned rave with DJs from Heidi to Bjarki, Monki to the Ragga Twins and a massive garage takeover. Step up people, step the **** up!”
