Rob da Bank says: “Woo hah people! Yes it’s true, Busta Rhymes has got you all in check and he’s coming to Bestival for his first ever UK festi appearance! I’m such a Busta fan and it’s amazing not just to see him back in the charts with another banger with Thank You but also to know he's getting on the ferry and bringing it to Bestival!”
Yes, you might have noticed that we like a bit of hip-hop at our Desert Island Disco, so we are extremely pleased to say that rap superstar Busta Rhymes is coming to Bestival to flex his next level skills in what will be his first ever UK festival appearance. A bona fide hip-hop colossus whose intricate technique has brought him a sack full of plaudits, Busta is gearing up to release the much anticipated Extinction Level Event 2 this year and we can’t wait to witness his dopeness on our main stage!
The biggest electronic music festival, the biggest rave in Spain. A lot of terms are used in an attempt to describe this festival, however it is literally impossible to put in plain words if you have not had the chance to attend it.
A Life experience! Set in the desert, 40 000 people, 20hrs non-stop music, alternating between Electro, Techno, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass & Dubstep, on 5 simultaneous stages, Monegros is a unique event.
On top of the first artists released (Boys Noize, Paul Kalkbrenner live, Luciano, Vitalic, Steve Aoki y Dirtyphonics live); comes an array of 50+ artists covering all spectres of the electronic music scene. From the pophouse of megastar David Guetta, the Dubstep wobbles of Caspa, Benga and Rusko, and vintage sounds of techno pioneers such as Carl Cox, Dave Clarke and Richie Hawtin. The 2011 edition of Monegros Festival will cover and cater to all electronic music lovers.
