On Saturday the Rizlab will host headline sets from Coldcut, The Toddla T Sound, Bonobo, Actress, and Raf Daddy (The 2 Bears). Ninja Tune DJs will set the tone for the day ahead of appearances by FattyDL, Slugabed, and Raffertie.

Big Dada hosts the Sunday with performances from El-P (live) and Sticky scheduled to bring the festival to a close in style. Earlier in the day, the line-up includes Roots Manuva, and The Banana Klan Soundsystem, a live set from BEAK>, Kwesachu mixtape (ft Micachu, Kwes, Dels and more), as well as sets from Dobie, Bang On, Offshore, and A La Fu.

Bestival organisers have also announced a collaboration with youth volunteering specialists RockCorps to set up a scheme that will allow would be local Bestival-goers to trade their time for a ticket.

They will be giving away 50 camping tickets to those who successfully sign up and take part in a project to create a sustainable allotment at the Isobel Centre, a community centre, at Furrlongs, Pan.

To get into the Bestival spirit, volunteers will have to arrive in wildlife-themed fancy dress and bring something to barter with. Each volunteer will be asked to work for at least four hours on Wednesday 5th September5, the day before the festival starts.

Those wanting to enter should email barterforbestival@rockcorps.co.uk with your name, age, address, and telephone number with 'Barter for Bestival' in the subject line.

Bestival has over 20 stages of live music from more than 300 bands alongside a wealth of hidden treasures peppered across the site. From the old world southern American charms of the Swamp Shack and the magical aura of the Wishing Tree, to the mayhem of the Wall of Death and the rush of the Roller Disco it's a non-stop party paradise all weekend.

New Order will headline Saturday, with Stevie Wonder headlining the Sunday. Also performing are Orbital, The xx, Sigur Ros, Justice, Two Door Cinema Club, Hot Chip, Friendly Fires, Death In Vegas, Nero, The Horrors, Gary Numan, Earth, Wind & Fire Experience feat Al McKay, Rizzle Kicks, and many more.
