Already the most diverse, and by extension, exciting line up to grace UK shores, Bestival's line up has been completed by the Sunday night headliners' announcement of Wiz Khalifa and Sean Paul. The pair are going to close the Isle of Wight's best festival, and look to be the cherry on the top of the best festival left this year.
The pair join the headliners The Cure, Major Lazer and Hot Chip, which kinda proves that whatever your bag is, Bestival will fill it. The line up also features the best names in UK grime, in the shape of Skepta and Kano, one of the most promising electronica names in the form of Bicep, and local talents in the name of the almighty New Desert Blues.
But there's a lotta Vapour Trail favourites there too, which is why you can find us waltzing around the island covered in glowy face paint and glitter. The Wytches, hot off the back of a fantastic EP, look to tear the IOW a new one, whilst NYC dream-rockers Sunflower Bean also make the cut. Our favourite Queen Of Pop in waiting Girli is there, whilst you can also see Black Honey, who've seemingly been on the brink of greatness since time began. Oh, and Ride are playing too, y'know, that band we're named after...
So it seems the Bestival line up is pretty complete, and I know it's the best weekend I'll have all year... see you there!
