More room in the crowd I guess! 

Oh, i'll probably still be there (unless there's somebody great on elsewhere)... Just noting that he's really not in the same league as the likes of Beck, Underworld and M.I.A..

All credible acts! Gutted I missed M.I.A, she's been quite a rarity. Jamie T's shows are always a bloody good time but I suppose it's a different story if you aren't that much of a fan - he's got more of a cult following than anything else it seems.

This - it makes for a good atmosphere.

Anyone have any idea how much more we can expect to be announced?

Hopefully a lot more.. it seems Bestival don't have a very unique line-up overall at the moment.  I have a ticket and I'm super excited either way but it'd be a shame if they don't pull off a successful year this time round. They have the same core acts of the other festivals but without any prominent headliners as such. There will be a few more big announcements I'm sure

RDB has said tickets are selling well so that's one thing I suppose. I really hope they make a success of it this year...

Just realised the Electic Picnic lineup is posted on the previous page... a few others off that would go down well!

Wouldn't be surprised to see Sampha, but i don't think SBTRK are active at the moment.

RTJ a good shout too.

I'm really hoping Sohn and Bonobo show up.

RTJ would be class but i think they're to big of a draw to have not been announced yet, perfect fit above Danny brown, earl sweatshirt would be a good booking for that day imo . Would love to see bonobo play, seen before and  he was flawless. I was really hoping for Johnny marr, but being realistic I'm hoping for alvvays and caribou aswell.

I can't see any dates for Caribou at the moment so don't think that's very likely unfortunately

ATCQ have cancelled some European dates due to Q-Tip injuring his shoulder.

Given Roskilde is at the end of June though I'm guessing (hoping) they will still be there for Bestival.

I think he'll be fine... I'm actually recovering from a quadruple shoulder joint fracture I sustained 8 weeks ago, and I could do a show now, but wouldn't have been a couple of weeks ago.

It makes their appearance even more special too... It's turned out to be quite the coo for Bestival, when at first it might have been a little underwhelming given the fact they were also doing Parklift and (probably) Glastonbury...

I'm looking forward to it! Good luck with the recovery.

Reckon we're going to have another line-up drop on Thursday or Friday now we've gone to phase 4 ticket sales?

Hope so! I don't think we'll have RTJ as I'd previously hoped for though as they seem to be in America that weekend...

Wish they would just drop something soon, fed up with waiting. Jamie XX will surely be announced!?

Rob has just said on twitter that there is some "exciting (but still secret) news just in for Thursday shenanigans on our new stage The Temple"
