The Chemical Brothers and Underworld have been announced as the first two headliners to perform at Bestival this year, with the Chemical Brothers playing on the Saturday night, while Underworld will take to the stage on the Thursday.
Other artists confirmed for the 50,000 capacity live music festival, which is curated by Josie and Rob Da Bank, include Tame Impala, Annie Mac and Lily Allen presents Funlord.
The Jacksons and Duran Duran will both be making UK festival exclusive appearances at the event. Duran front man Simon Le Bon had this to say: “This year sees the beginning of a new Duran Duran live show. I couldn’t imagine starting it with more of a bang than an appearance at Bestival.”
The festival will take place on Robin Hill, Isle of Wight between 10-13 September, with this year’s theme being Summer of Love.
Bestival 2015 will celebrate the festival’s 20th birthday and it’s sure to be one hell of a party with The Chemical Brothers in attendance.
