Setting the tone for Year of Colour, Bestival announce even more amazing artists who join the likes of The xx, A Tribe Called Quest, Pet Shop Boys, Jamie T, Kurupt FM, Justice and Dizzee Rascal.
Taking place from 7 – 12 September at the Lulworth Estate in Dorest for the first time, Bestival plan on redefining escapism for the festival generation.
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.
Added to the line up today is Wiley, Blossoms, Loyle Carner, Roots Manuva, Twin Atlantic, Nick Mulvey, AJ Tracey, Fatman Scoop, Romare and Sinkane.
Plus sound system action keeping the floors lit all weekend long, with celebratory behaviour from Andy C presenting 25 years of RAM featuring Andy C, Calyx & Teebee, Culture Shock, DC Breaks and MCs Tonn Piper, and Carasel & 2Shy.
Bestival lifetime resident David Rodigan presents Ram Jam with Preditah, Conducta & MC Creed, Venum Sound and a very special guest still to be announced. And there will be footwork frenzy for the Teklife Showcase with sets from DJ Spinn, DJ Taye, DJ Paypal & Teklife Dancers.
The Garage Pool Party will be rinsing some classic beats with garage playas Heartless Crew, DJ Luck & MC Neat and Oxide & Neutrino. Ensuring the subs are red hot right across the site is the likes of Kiko Bun, StarOne, Riddim Punks, Ghost Writerz, Shepdog, Serocee, Red Eye Hifi, Mr Benn, Cut La Vis, Jamie Rodigan, Origin One & AAA Badboy.
Many more acts TBA. Tickets for Bestival 2017 on sale now.
