Bestival 2016 - the line-up (so far)

Bestival is unofficially the end of the 2016 festival season in the UK, and it looks like they're planning on a huge party on the Isle of Wight this year with a tremendous line-up.

Artists confirmed to play are Hot Chip, Animal Collective, Wolf Alice, Rationale, Years & Years, Aurora, Bastille, , Craig David’s TS5, Damian  Marley, M, The Cure, Diplo, Fatboy Slim, Spring King, Odesza, Jagwa Ma and many many many more.

Earlier on this year the festival also announced the Invaders of the Future stage, and it will be bouncing all weekend long to sets from west London’s All This Noise, high-octane punks Asylums, atmospheric four-piece Black Honey, Island b-boys Born Ina Barn, and soulful pop types Clean Cut Kid, with appearance from Coco, Creeper and Danny L Harle.

Bestival will also have singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eska, beguiling trio Fatherson, pop outfit Fickle Friends, ultra-vivid chanteuse Girli, rock n rollers The Greasy Slicks, the darkly inventive HÆLOS, visceral Spanish indie quartet Hinds and the swirling sounds of The Japanese House.
Getting those in the know all hot under the collar there will be more Invaders of the Future action from the golden voiced JP Cooper, Illinois’s K.Flay, the folk musings of L.A. Salami, hotly-tipped Merseysider Louis Berry, emo four-piece Moose Blood, punk rockers Milk Teeth, hyperreal ultrapop label action from PC Music All Stars and Pinegrove.

The festival will be taking place on the Isle of Wight at Robin Hill Park, it runs this year from the 8th to the 11th of September - tickets are £190 for the weekend.
