The Bollywood Tent line-up has been announced for the Desert Island Disco themed Bestival has announced the line-up for the Temple Island Area returning for to Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight, from Thursday 4th until Sunday 7th September 2014.
Joining the previously announced Skreamizm (Skream, Derrick Carter, Route 94, Horsemeat Disco) on Friday will be David Rodigan presents Ram Jam (with Randall ( AWOL Set) & MC Fearless, Mele, Stylo G, & Venum Sound), Hackman, Lorca, Awesome Tapes From Africa, Desert Island Disco, and Yoga Beats.
Faith’s founder Terry Farley said: “About 10 years ago a record label appeared that caught the mood of real Househeads all over Europe, and especially those on the Faithfanzine board. Innervisons out of Germany caught the vibe perfectly and the producers and DJs of Innervisons are now huge stars across the world. Dixon and Ãme both played in London for Faith in those early days and Innervisons were big fans of the Faith printed 'Strobelight Honey/Faithfanzine' magazine whose mantra 'House, House and more fucking House’ became a T-shirt that Innervisons printed up as a homage . It’s with great pleasure that we once again join up with Ãme at Bestival with Stuart Patterson and myself playing on the Sunday night in Faith’s takeover of the Bollywood tent. Come along and join us, you know already that it’s going to rock."
Island leader Rob Da Bank added, “Bollywood is everything that Bestival is all about, from its mind-bending entrance and lavish insides, to the dangerously moreish cocktails and full on party music. And when it comes to the music, I have to say I’m quite chuffed with who we’ve got coming to take over Bollywood for our Desert Island Disco, with Skream and Derrick Carter ramping up the disco vibes, the mighty Rodigan and his Ram Jam crew adding some fat reggae and Terry Farley and Stuart Patterson’s peerless Faith with Ame and Luke Solomon, it’s gonna go right off, all weekend long. You’re guaranteed to see me having a bit of dance there, so see you down the front”
