Bonobo, SBTRKT,Darkside (Nicolas Jaar & Dave Harrington), Temples, DJ Yoda, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Peter Hook and the Light with 'Unknown Pleasures', Cate Le Bon, Nick Mulvey, Denai Moore, Public Service Broadcasting, The Radiophonic Workshop, and Ady Suleiman have been announced for Bestival's Desert Island Disco themed 11th edition at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight, happening Thursday 4th until Sunday 7th September 2014.
This year for the first time, Bestival have teamed up with BBC Radio 6 Music to host The Big Top on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with 6 Music’s presenter line-up DJing in between acts, bringing you the very best music round the clock.
Rob da Bank said, “I probably spend more time in The Big Top at Bestival than in any other space. The Main Stage has lots of huge and excellent acts on, but The Big Top is the intimate beating heart of Bestival and getting sweaty with 10,000 other Bestivalites to the most cutting edge indie, electronic and folk acts is always fun.
"I’m really pleased with the new additions from the incredible cinematic electronica of Nicolas Jaar's Darkside project through to dance mania from SBTRKT, the hottest indie band in the UK, Temples, and old friends Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Peter Hook doing Joy Division. See you down the front…if you're up for it!”
