With ten fields of wonderment filled with amazing music, insane sideshows and magical happenings, Bestival’s spectacular 10th birthday bash this September 5th-8th will have something for just about everyone. And if you’re hankering for the freshest music on site then you’re in luck as Bestival organisers are delighted to announce that the ‘Replay with Rob da Bank’ stage will be returning again this year!
Rob da Bank says: “Last year we really went to town on the ‘Replay with Rob da Bank’ stage – some amazing bands making it one of the most popular stages we’ve ever had, with insane performances from the likes of Alt-J tearing the place apart. This year’s no different – we’ve gone full steam ahead and booked one of the best line-ups of exciting and fresh music that you’re likely to see all year long, with The 1975, Swim Deep, Merchandise and Jagwar Ma already announced and amongst many I ‘d recommend. Make sure you don’t miss out on this one, it’s gonna be big.”
One of the biggest draws on site when it made it’s inaugural appearance last year, huge crowds were treated to acts such as Kate Nash, Alt_J, Skepta, and Jake Bugg in 2012.
Now situated in its very own unique big top tent, the ‘Replay with Rob da Bank’ stage will play host to a litany of newly-announced acts, including sublime stream of consciousness action from Ghostpoet, Disclosure collaborator Sam Smith, hotly tipped Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, super sharp beatniks Ruen Brothers, hook-heavy Nottingham quintet Dog is Dead, folk-rockers To Kill A King, anthemic duo Man Without Country, melancholy mix maestros Feeling Gloomy and sassy chanteuse Chloe Howl. Plus there will be appearances from the previously announced Champs, Jagwar Ma, Lewis Watson and Molotov Jukebox, with many more acts still to be added to the stage – watch this space for more news.
If you can’t wait until September for a taster of what Replay has to offer, then the Road Trip To Bestival is for you! You can catch a selection of artists from the Replay line-up pre-Bestival at two exclusive in-store performances. Replay’s Road Trip To Bestival will kick-off in London at Replay Store Carnaby Street in August.
