    Would you say Bestival suitable for children?

    Yes - but in a lovely, happy, friendly way!

    Catfish and the Bottlemen and the Libertines are both total dogshit though. I'd be ashamed to tell anyone I was going to Bestival if they were the headliners.

    Jack Ü = Diplo's collaboration with Skrillex from about three years ago. It was pretty huge.

    What's that in reference to? Anyway, Bestival have just tweeted, "it’s a top secret project to be revealed soon…", so I imagine there's significantly more to Silk City than just Diplo & Ronson on their laptops....

    Well I'm a big fan of Diplo's sets, so that's cool. However, last time Mark Ronson did a B2B DJ set on the Bestival main stage, he killed the vibe every time it was his turn, by playing something really obvious and dull.

    That's a big assumption, but if it is, then it looks like it might be a name made up of 2 x 4 letters, possibly one of the words being 3 letters if there's an H, M or W in there. What it looks most like, apart from the fact that the top of the second letter looks flat, is SOFT CELL. Which would be a coup, especially given that their O2 show was announced as "the band’s ONLY and last EVER show". Surprisingly that show isn't yet sold out though, and they don't strike me as a crowd-puller for people who do festivals (though, being 42, I'd definitely go see them). Anyway, the first letter under that black bar is a C, G or S. The second is probably E, I or T. The first letter you can see on the right-hand side is C, J or S. And I think the last letter is A, E, F, M, L, P R or Y. But it's probably just a bunch of random letters that don't mean anything.

    Well, he's booked the NPG for both Common People festivals. It'd definitely be nice to see them at Bestival though.

    They've said "start of March" for the Friday headliner announcement.

    "Huge and very special" is the other clue, though of course they're hardly going to call them "Mid-ranking and ordinary".

    On the day that Daphne & Celeste announce a new album and a couple of UK dates. Coincidence...?

    I can't find it now, but last night there was a stage listed on the website as "Lit Stage - Needs a New Name".... But that could be a "new blood" type stage.

    It's definitely got a different feel to what I'm used to seeing on a first announcement. Much less of a "major festival" feel, to be frank. Jorja Smith as Thursday's headliner is a surprise choice, to say the least, but I love the fact that they've gone for all female (/-fronted) acts at the top of the bill. But there's plenty in that first wave to keep me entertained, and when Britney's announced as Friday headliner (it must be her, surely?!) it'll look a lot more balanced and exciting.
