London Grammar, M.I.A. and Plan B are among the names announced in Bestival 2018’s first wave line-up reveal.
Returning to Dorset’s Lulworth Estate for the second time, Bestival 2018 will also see the likes of Grace Jones, Mura Masa, Chaka Khan, Jorja Smith, House Gospel Choir and Goldie grace the annual event’s new home across 2nd-5th August.
Additional names on the line-up include Not3s, Mabel, Mike Skinner, Mr Jukes and Rudimental. The Friday night headliner is still being kept under-wraps, expected to be announced in the coming weeks. London Grammar will headline Saturday with M.I.A closing the event on the Sunday night.
Of the line-up, Bestival founder Rob da Bank says: “Here come the girls…and a few boys too! Yes, it’s Bestival 2018 and we’re here with the first wave of our all-singing all-dancing line-up. With UK festival exclusive headliners London Grammar and Jorja Smith to legends in the game Chaka Khan, Jimmy Cliff and Grace Jones, and always representing the new blood from Mura Masa and IAMDDB to Mabel and Idles, we’re covering all bases. As any Bestival veteran knows we don’t just do music, so come and check our Hot Yoga, Dubstep Dodgem rides, wood-fired hot tubs, AmbientLand craft tent, East 17’s Christmas Party!, and loads of circus-based trickery, including a Human Cannonball, high wire fire walking and a pretty buff strongman popping up on the Main Stage.”
