Adding even more weight to the superlative 10th birthday DJ line-up, Bestival organisers are making it bounce at Bestival HQ with the news that current UK Top 40 Singles Chart No.1 star Duke Dumont is coming aboard HMS Bestival.
Taking the top spot in the Official UK Top 40 Singles Chart last night with ‘Need U (100%)’, undoubtedly one of the biggest dance floor smashers of the year, Duke Dumont is renowned throughout clubland for his scintillating DJ sets that have seen him win an army of fans at the likes of superclubs such as Fabric and Bugged Out.
Rob da Bank says: “I’ve been playing out the Duke’s remixes and productions for a few years now, but never really expected him to have a huge Number One smash… It couldn’t happen to a more deserving chap and he’s gonna slay our new concept stage where he’s playing at Bestival… More news on that very soon!”
Crowned Diesel U Music Champion in 2006, Duke Dumont has since gone on to gain plaudits from some of dance music’s biggest names (including Erol Alkan and Armand Van Helden), earning him the epithet ‘The producers’ producer’. And now, armed with a bona-fide smash hit under his belt, he’s coming to Robin Hill to play at a soon to be announced brand new arena, helping us celebrate a decade of dancing on the Isle of Wight!
This is just a taster of what’s to come over the next couple of months as we’ll be announcing even more great acts for our 2013 line-up, new arenas, and of course our third headliner, so keep checking www.Bestival.net and our Facebook and Twitter. And don’t forget to tag your tweets #hmsbestival.
