Festival organiser Rob da Bank said, "I love booking Bestival. It's proper 'kid in a sweetshop' time when I look at all the acts out there and try to curate a line-up that makes sense across many genres… which is how I think Bestivalites like it. It’s not just booked for you, it's for me too, so I cannot wait for a weekend encompassing Kano, Goldie, Mura Masa, Evian Christ and Reggie and Bollie. If you fancy it too, I'll see you on the ferry!"
