2017 first line-up poster

Recommended Posts

Well if Bon Iver did pull out that hopefully freed up a little bit of cash for the undercard.

I reckon it'll be the XX undercard, some of the "day&night" acts for the undercard (Sampha etc)

Chance the rapper 
Faithless (Dj set)

De la soul

Gold panda 
Slaves (live set not just DJ)
Delta heavy 
Sub focus 
Run the jewels 
Flume

I like the idea of all of those! A couple more I think could make the bill is professor green and the 1975 maybe two door cinema club or gaslight anthem

Gaslight anthem are on hiatus I believe but wouldn't be surprised to see Brian fallon there in some way! Wishful thinking but I'd love to see Johnny marr pop up, same with alvvays

People will always have aslight moan about prices as they are only there to see a few acts, but the great thing with festivals is that you explore and hear and see bands you've never heard of that become your faves, it's all about the adventure.

I've noticed RDB tweeting about Divine Comedy a couple of times this week - maybe they will appear on the line up?? Also would love to see London Grammar on there... they are doing the rounds...

Yeah I can see London Grammar headlining the 2nd stage at the same time as PSB or ATCQ.

The 2nd stage headliner doesn't start until after the main stage has finished.

Aren't they making the second stage/ tent smaller for this years fest. I wouldnt expect the format to be staying exactly the same if that is the case. There were already dangerously busy levels for some of those tent headliners in previous years - Crystal fighters and Katy B last year was rammed (don't know if they were 'headliners' though).

I would expect more of the traditional headliners up against one another if they have downsized the tent.

I read somewhere on Facebook ((I think)) that the format for the box will be the same as the big top stage and be closing late with late headliners

They've got a music licence up until 4am on Friday/Saturday nights I think, so yeah I would imagine it's staying the same (or as similar as it can possibly be)

Anyone think with R&L being so close that we'll get some acts from that announcement? Personally I would love: Flatbush zombies, migos, Noisia, High contrast, Jaguar skills and marmozets to make an appearance

London Grammar were incredible as the sun set on the main stage a few years back.

Seriously, what are Bestival spending their money on?

Looking at recent festival announcements, Bestival is surely one of the worst line ups on the circuit.

And don't get me wrong, headliners aren't everything. But overall line up is. 

Id bet they won't sell 20,000 tix

Probably best you just move on now, you got some money back from last year, best off concentrating on another festival you are going to enjoy rather than dwelling on the past.

Any lineup with Crazy P on it is winning this year. I couldnt recommend them highly enough for when you go if you like a dance. Hoping they will be at whatever festival I end up going to.

I went to see the xx in Cardiff last night on the last leg of their European tour and they were incredible. Sounded great, well thought out setlist and amazing stage set up and light show. Will be interesting to see what they bring to Bestival but we should be in for a treat! 

Any ideas on the next line up announcement? It's all gone a bit quiet
