One of the greatest artists of all time and a true musical innovator, Bestival organisers say they couldn’t be more ecstatic that she’s coming to the Isle of Wight for her first UK show in nine years and what is destined to be one of the most epic Bestival finales of all time. Ever.
Commenting on her headline appearance, Missy Elliott said:
“I’m very excited to be performing at Bestival this year! I can’t wait to see all my fans I haven’t seen in some time… new ones and my day one fans! We are gonna have a blast together! Bring your dancing outfits and kicks!”
Bestival b-boy Rob da Bank says:
“So, putting the final pieces together for the world’s most intricate jigsaw puzzle that is Bestival, I’m mighty proud to announce our Sunday headliner Missy Elliott. Needing no introduction Missy is the epitome of hip-hop royalty, the first lady of party-starting club bangers and a downright legend. I cannot wait to watch the most successful female rap artist ever to Work It at Bestival 2015!”
Hailing from Portsmouth…in Virginia, Missy Elliott is one of music’s most successful MCs, songwriters, and producers. She’s racked up five Grammy awards, one double platinum and four platinum albums and over 166 awards from VMAs to MOBOs and beyond, but more importantly she drops bombs.

Her production innovation has had a huge impact on music globally, firing out guilt edged monsters by the truckload from The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly), Hot Boyz and Get Ur Freak On to Work It, Pass The Dutch and Lose Control the stamp of her influence can be heard loud and clear to this day.
