As picked up by Isle of Wight blog, Rob da Bank twittered about the situation.

He wrote: “Had potentially had The Beastie Boys for secret act but adam yauch has cancer so not happenin.wishin him a speedy recovery:-)”

The festival is now famed for its secret shows with Madness, Grace Jones and The Specials all performing in the past.

That means the Bestival-faithful are set to go back to the guessing game as to who will play this year.

, Massive Attack and Elbow will headline the sold out Bestival 2009 which takes place at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight from 11-13 September.
