Currently showing just about everyone exactly how it’s done, we’re delighted to announce long-time Besti-friend, Charli XCX, is coming back to Robin Hill to blow apart our Summer of Love! Also making a triumphant Bestival return is purveyor of blissed out balladry, Lianne La Havas, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to announce Neneh Cherry is coming to Bestival, playing alongside London duo RocketNumberNine, with whom she released the album MeYouWeYou in 2013.
We’ll also have the gravelly tones of Ella Eyre, experimental singer-songwriter Andreya Triana, BBC Radio 1 raver B.Traits, and BBC 1Xtra’s ever-eclectic Monki, the stunningly brilliant SOAK, Manchester synth ace Lonelady, fuzzy Scottish duo Honeyblood, interactive audio-visual genius Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra, and California-based lo-fi duo Girlpool. Plus we’ll have music fromMoxie, Josey Rebelle, DJ Barely Legal, Ekkah, Jagaara, Throwing Shade, Laura Moody and Graceland.
And, lest we forget, we also have a star-studded array of previously announced acts including Roisin Murphy, Little Dragon, Kate Tempest, Snap!, Annie Mac, Lily Allen Presents Funlord, Hannah Wants, Lapsley, Shura and Rae Morris, amongst a veritable love-in of amazing joy that includes The Chemical Brothers, Underworld, Duran Duran, Tame Impala, The Jacksons and many, many more.
