Beck and Basement Jaxx have already been announced for Thursday night slots under the Big Top and joining them now will be electronica star Bonobo, Bestival favourite SBTRKT, Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington’s Darkside and psych-rockers Temples.

DJ Yoda, dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip, Peter Gook & the Light, Cate Le Bon, Nick Mulvey and Public Service Broadcasting have also been announced for Bestival's Big Top stage today.

Alongside all of this entertainment you can now enjoy The Big Top Hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the cream of 6 Music’s presenter line-up DJing in between acts, bringing you the very best music round the clock.

Rob da Bank commented: "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!"

BBC Radio 6 Music Editor James Stirling said: "BBC Radio 6 Music is really excited to be working with Bestival for the first time this year. The fantastic line-up on The Big Top stage follows 6 Music’s ethos of mixing alternative-spirited established artists such as Beck and Basement Jaxx with emerging talent such as Temples and Cate Le Bon. Some of our presenting family will be there DJing, introducing some of the artists on stage and generally bringing the spirit of the festival alive for our audience".
