Bestival organisers have announced details of the Rizla Arena, which will feature dance, reggae, dub and ska DJs. They'll also be giving out free condoms...

Acts playing the tent will include Terry Hall, Andy Votel, Greg Wilson and Tim Love Lee.

It follows the recent confirmation of the new BBC Introducing... stage, which will boast breaking acts like Jack Penate and Architecture In Helsinki.

Organisers have also revealed that free condoms will be handed out at the festival to encourage safe sex. Revellers simply text condom to 88800, they will then get a text back telling them where they can pick up a condom on the campsite. Teams will also be handing out condoms around the festival site.

Speaking about the plan, organiser Rob Da Bank said: "We welcome this initiative which is a quirky way to encourage festival goers to practise safer sex and ensure they won't be caught unprepared.“

Bestival takes place at Robin Hill Park on the Isle Of Wight from 7-9 September and features headline sets by The Chemical Brothers, Beastie Boys and Primal Scream.
