Rob Da Bank has lifted the lid on Bestival’s 2015 lineup this morning, with rave gods The Chemical Brothers set to headline the 5-day extravaganza this September.
Elsewhere you’ll be treated to performances from The Jacksons, Jungle, Flying Lotus, Gorgon City, Little Dragon, Future Islands, Annie Mac, Andrew Weatherall and Young Fathers.
This year’s festival theme is Summer of Love explains Rob Da Bank, “We’re taking it right back to our roots for the 12th annual Bestival,” he explains. “It’s also the 20th birthday of the club where it all started – Sunday Best, and that club and our beloved Bestival were founded on some pretty simple aims – listen to amazing music, make new friends, have fun, and maybe stay up all night.
“Two decades later we’re rigidly sticking to those principles, and this edition of Bestival, with its Summer of Love theme, is all about one huge musical, well, orgy… So, returning friends the Chemical Brothers rave alongside iconic popstars Duran Duran and The Jacksons, and some of my favourite modern musical mavericks – Tame Impala, Flying Lotus and Jungle – jump in bed together… and this is just the start of the party… Watch this space and feel the love!”
There’s still plenty of acts to be announced over the coming months including two more headliners for Friday and Sunday.
