Rob da Bank said, "Oh wow... Am I excited about this stage in 2014! I love working with Red Bull who have been at the majority of the last 11 Bestivals in some form or other musically. We definitely share a love of underground electronic music from all over the world and this year we’ve nailed our biggest line up yet. Jackmaster and his Numbers crew are simply the best party people around right now, the total legend that is Harvey used to DJ at my club Sunday Best 15 years ago and is still the man for awe inspiring leftfield DJ sets for disco heads, Tropical is where its at right now as grime, house and bass collide in a sunshine vibe and Diplo comes straight from the main stage with his Major Lazer crew to mash up the grand finale. Seriously this is gonna be a lock out from Thursday to Monday! Check it!”

Also confirmed are Busta Rhymes, Disclosure, Major Lazer, London Grammar, Sam Smith, Wild Beasts, Clean Bandit, Caribou, Chvrches, Laura Mvula, Paloma Faith, Basement Jaxx, Candi Staton, Sven Vath, Damian Lazarus, Boys Noize, Annie Mac, Green Velvet, Chase & Status (DJ Set), Andy C, Wilkinson, 1-800 Dinosaur (James Blake, Dan Foat, Airhead, Mr Assister), Route94, Bicep, Richy Ahmed, Krystal Klear, Monki, Loadstar (2 Shy, Adapt, MC Jakes), Jaguar Skills, Gorgon City, Rob Da Bank, and more.
