With over 25 stages, revolutionary soundsystems, zombie love-ins, psychedelic woodland adventures, 24-hour free haircuts and a host of dazzling new attractions, Bestival’s Summer of Love has expanded even more with the announcement of new acts – including The Chuckle Brothers!
Bringing on the love with big fat beats, revellers can expect main stage appearances from grime pioneer Wiley plus the unstoppable skank machine, Dub Pistols. More Isle of Wight-based Bestival main stage action will come from cool chanteuse Gabrielle Aplin, sing-along faves Dodgy, and the Isle of Wight’s own Xockha and Yrslf.
Old blue, Bestival’s beloved Big Top will be playing host to some mighty sounds this summer, too, including the much requested return of Joseph Junior Adenuga AKA Skepta and an absolute must-see live set from drum n bass hero Roni Size & Reprazent. Drenge, DJ Yoda Presents: Breakfast of Champions and Kitty Daisy & Lewis also join the Big Top line-up.
To top it all off, Jaguar Skills will be joining the dancefloor at The Port for Bestival between 10th-13th September.
Love commando Rob da Bank says:
“I’m well excited with this new batch of acts we’re announcing. With so many identikit festivals about with similar acts and bills I’m proud that 12 years on we don’t go with the flow.
“If the indie amazingness of Drenge isn’t your bag then the grimy facials of Skepta ad Wiley might be, and if you’re insane and don’t like the legendary junglist brilliance of Roni Size and his live Reprazent show then perhaps, just perhaps, you’ll be singing ‘to me, to you, to me, to you’ whilst dancing in a pair of ill-fitting shorts to the Chuckle Brothers.
“No matter what, there’s plenty more fish in the sea to come, as our Summer of Love really starts to heat up. See you down the front”.
