The Red Bull Music Academy return to Bestival this September with a new stage and dance-conducive bill.

Glaswegian star collective Numbers lead the takeover on Thursday (Sept 4) and introduce Jackmaster & Oneman, who present 'Can U Dance', showcasing their four-deck manoeuvres, plus there's live sets from Redhino, Kool Clap and Spencer going back to back with Optimo.

Commenting on his return to Bestival Jackmaster said: "We've started thinking of Numbers at Bestival as a bit of a tradition within our ranks, as have myself and Oney with our b2b sets at the festival. Heavy looking forward to taking that to the next level with our 4 deck Can U Dance set and also welcoming two of our favourite DJs on the planet!"

Friday sees Harvey’s Discotheque in control, programming a line-up that includes techno-head Daniel Avery, Pachanga Boys, Eric Duncan, Jolly Mare, Andre Laos and Hugo Capablanca.

Saturday gets a urban flavour with Boy Better Know’s JME, Skepta, and ex-Kiss FM DJ Logan Sama. They’re joined by Preditah, C4, Slimzee with Riko Dan, and Plastician.

Finally, Sunday is brought to a close with Diplo & friends taking care of the headline slot, alongside appearances by Kaytranada, Trippy Turtle, Artwork and Martelo.

Bestival founder Rob da Bank said today: "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!"

Bestival 2014 takes place from 4-7 September at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle Of Wight.

OutKast, Foals and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers have all been confirmed to headline the event this September, which will also feature Busta Rhymes, Paloma Faith, Disclosure, Major Lazer, London Grammar, Wild Beasts and Laura Mvula.
