Kid Sister, Nathan 'Flutebox' Lee, Magistrates and Soko will also play the three-day bash, which takes place at Robin Hill Country Park, near Newport, from 5-7 September.
with less than two weeks to go, several new arenas have been announced. The Red Bull 54 Speakeasy will resemble 1970s
New York with hip hop, breaks and dubstep being played.
Meanwhile, Skid Row will be set along one side of the 24 Hour Field, featuring Bestival favourites like Club Dada, the Polka Tent and Area 51.
The Rizla Players will be making their return in their own designated dance area, featuring DJs Annie Mac, Justin Roberston and Greg Wilson.
While the Xbox Social will offer more laid back tunes, plus comedy, pub games and karaoke, and Kickers will be offering you the chance to appear in a music video for Chromeo by showing off your fancy footwork.
For the second year running,
the Solent Swimmers will be risking life and limb as they swim across the busy swimming shipping lanes of
the Solent for charity.
This year the 12 will be donating to three charities; Gosport's branch of the Chernobyl Children's Life Line, Island Youth Water Activities Centre (IOW) Ltd, and Imibala. You can find out more and donate HERE.
Bestival is completely sold out.
