Festival fans will also welcome the return of Club Dada and the Polka Tent.
Speaking about the additions, Rob da Bank said: "I'm down on the Isle of Wight at the mo' supposedly having a breather before Bestival but actually just getting very excited about all the latest fun and games we have to announce. Janelle Monáe is without a doubt a superstar, fame and glory aside she just writes the best songs since Prince ... technicolour funk mayhem coming to Bestival only this year! The Jolly Boys were so brilliant at Camp Bestival we had to get them back for Besti and they'll be gracing the main stage - undoubtedly a Bestival moment waiting to happen.
Mrs da Bank has been very busy beavering away on a brand new field, The Wishing Tree, roughly running 24 hours and really a place to wind down after the main stage finishes and also somewhere to get horizontal during the day and check out some brilliant cabaret, comedy and our two new micro venues Chai Wallahs and The Bimble Inn, two staples of the alternative festi circuit. Make sure you discover the actual The Wishing Tree (you can't miss it) and get inside later on for ambient sets from the likes of Phil Mison, Chris Coco and Moonboots. Yoga, meditation and chanting is not compulsory but is encouraged. Phew ...i cant wait!"
All the tickets have been snapped up with fans eager to see the likes of Dizzee Rascal, The Prodigy, The Flaming Lips, Chase And Status and many more.
