The long-awaited third headliner for this summer’s Bestival have been announced.
Having already revealed London Grammar and M.I.A. as bill-toppers for 2018, this summer will also see Diplo and Mark Ronson perform under their new Silk City project on Bestival’s Friday night.
Of the new addition to the line-up, Bestival founder Rob da Bank says: “We don’t like doing the same thing as other festivals here at Bestival HQ… so for our Friday night headliner we’ve booked something you’ll never have seen in Europe or probably the world. Two of the best party-starting DJs with a new stage show packed with surprises back to back… ladies and gents, boys and girls, please welcome Diplo and Mark Ronson aka Silk City to the stage! They’re long-time friends of Bestival, so we are ecstatic Diplo and Mark Ronson have chosen our 15th anniversary celebrations to make their European debut as Silk City with a UK festival exclusive set. And if there’s one thing you can guarantee, it’s that this pair know how to rock a party. Two of music’s greatest names together on the Castle stage, with you, us and some big, big tunes, it’s already got legendary written all over it.”
This year’s line-up is shaping to be one of Bestival’s strongest, with the likes of Grace Jones, Jorja Smith, Plan B, Chaka Khan, First Aid Kit, Mura Masa, Mabel and more already confirmed – you can check the full list here. Bestival tickets are onsale now over on their official site.
