Orbital and Clean Bandit set for Standon Calling 2017

Bringing together a unique weekend of irresistible fun, extraordinary experiences and unrivalled entertainment, Standon Calling has over 11 years marked itself as the true epitome of what a festival is. Celebrating creativity, community and freedom – Standon Calling offers a genuine weekend escape that’s seen over 12,000 festival-goers return year after year – with 2017’s 12th edition only set to continue that story.
 
 
Originators, visionaries and vital in defining an era for an entire generation, Orbital sit on the head-table of electronic royalty with a catalogue and legacy packed with forward-thinking music. Since emerging at the start of the 90s, the Hartnoll brothers have consistently evolved and innovated, with rapturous live sets of infectious techno beats and peerless anthems such as ‘Belfast’, ‘Halcyon And On And On’ and ‘Chime’ standing in a class of their own. After five years away from the stage, Orbital are destined to provided a truly staggering festival moment, when they headline Standon Calling 2017 – as one of dance music’s true greats bursts back into frame.
 
 
One of the most infectious and dynamic pop groups of the 21st century, Clean Bandit’s fusion of classical strings, electro beats and vintage pop hooks have made them a treasured and adored part of British pop culture. Their worldwide smash ‘Rather Be’ paved the way for a career which consistently finds them creating and developing, with hits such as ‘Real Love’, ‘Tears’ and last year’s Christmas number 1 ‘Rockabye’ all becoming go-to anthems in music collections around the country. Guaranteed to bring the sun-soaked vibes, Clean Bandit are ones destined to seize the moment when they headline Standon Calling 2017.
 
Talking about their headline set at Standon Calling 2017, Clean Bandit said:
“Having spent so long in the studio working on the new album, it’s incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to play our new music to fans this summer. It’s a really exciting opportunity to be headlining a festival in the UK and we hope to bring the party to Standon this summer!”
Both Orbital and Clean Bandit head up a staggering wealth of talent making their way to Standon Calling, continuing a long-standing passion for emerging talent that has been the backbone of the festival for many years.
 
Heading back to the fields after a breakout set in 2015 is youthful punk royalty Slaves, bringing a live show amped full of blistering intensity, unquenchable energy and unmissable presence. One of the defining live bands of recent years, the Mercury Prize-nominated duo are sure to leave their mark at Standon Calling 2017. Fellow Mercury Prize nominee Laura Mvula knows all about show-stealing moments, and her set at Standon Calling is sure to be a stand-out, bringing the infectious rhythms of latest album ‘Phenomenal Woman’ to the fields. One of the fastest rising British bands of recent times, Nothing But Thieves will bring their anthemic and explosive live presence to Standon for a heavyweight offering of future riff royalty whilst dark-pop heavyweight Gary Numan will delve into his synth-laden cabinets of punk for a stunning trip down memory lane with an artist right at the forefront of individuality and independence.
Continuing the festival’s rich history of bringing some of the most critically celebrated acts to the forefront at Standon Calling, The Laundry Meadows stage (in association with The Independent) is set to play host to a myriad of game-changing talent. These include Beta Band frontman Steve Mason who is destined to lay out a dazzling set with choice cuts from his recent solo return ‘Meet The Humans’ full of revitalising modern experimentation. !!! (Chk Chk Chk) are a band born and raised exactly for explosive festival fields and eruptive live moments, and their set at Standon Calling is destined to be a true embodiment of everything the dance-punk groovers represent. The full live experience also radiates through British Sea Power, returning to Standon Calling with new album ‘Let The Dancers Inherit The Party’ continuing to show why their storied tales of British-life still resonate with a legion of fans around the country. Expect their live show to be a truly unmissable moment in a weekend crammed full of them.
 
Standon Calling once again brings the most talked about names in new music into one weekend, with UK MC Nadia Rose, shimmering indie-pop slickers Fickle Friends and Manchester anarchists Cabbage confirmed for the festival, whilst renowned party-lighters The Cuban Brothers will turn on the charm for a festival moment bound to trigger pure joy around the site. Manchster’s art-pop groovers Dutch Uncles will be spinning through latest album ‘Big Balloon’ at this year’s festival, with respected UK hip-hop wordsmith Akala also touching down for a set of explosive and vital portraits of a nation. With even more spectacular sounds emanating from electro genre melders Kero Kero Bonito, dreamers Plastic Mermaids and proto-punk hitters Idles Standon Calling 2017 is laying out the red carpet for the future of exciting new music.
 
Drawing in dance innovators on every level, Standon Calling’s late-night lineup boasts a staggering array of electronic names and unparalleled stage takeovers. Leading the first reveal of must-see DJ sets is Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip fame), influential favourites Faithless, Jax Jones, DJ Yoda and Maxxi Soundsystem with a plethora of beat-maker and party-shakers. The Cowshed will once again trade in infamous and standout takeovers from the likes of the glamour-soaked glitz-filled extravaganza of Sink The Pink, the drum’n’bass gurus from Hospital Records with their Hospitality live spectacle, The Streets figurehead Mike Skinner and Manchester rap-rave heroes Murkage bringing their Tonga night to the fields and sombre club night Feeling Gloomy presenting their own distinct Bowie Disco – the spectacular and the unique are celebrated in style with the late night highs of Standon Calling.
Speaking about the first line-up announcement, Founder and Festival Director Alex Trenchard said:
“Standon Calling has always been about jaw dropping performances, whether that be from crowd favourites or emerging talent. For me, the very first Orbital Glastonbury show is something I will never forget but Standon is also about the now and I'm very excited to be announcing Clean Bandit straight off the back of nine weeks at number 1. When it comes to breaking acts, something that has been such an important part of Standon’s gone-by, I'm really excited about Cabbage, Nadia Rose and Fickle Friends. We've got loads more to announce including a very special Sunday night headliner, and I can't quite believe this is only the first wave. But what I do know is Standon 2017 is going to be the best ever.”
 
Over at The Lawn, there’s entertainment at every turn – lead by the incredible new comedy programme headlined by rising star and TV stalwart James Acaster, bringing an extremely special hour long Edinburgh preview to the festival as one of the nation’s leading new comedians heads to Standon Calling. With emerging star John Robins also confirmed for a set, expect to hear the belly laughs ringing from the comedy programme of stand-up and sketch performers across the weekend. Along with the gather-round thrills of the Pub Quiz, the sipping of smooth concoctions from the Cocktail Masterclasses, the unwinding Acoustic Sets or the in-depth talks – Standon Calling has it all and The Lawn will be its beating heart.
Whether it’s adults letting their hair down until 4am to the rings of late-night dance or dipping in the outdoor swimming pool, kids aged from teens to toddlers enjoying a daytime array of unique activities and celebrated entertainment or even dogs – participating in the renowned Standon Calling Dog Show – there’s something unmistakably new at every corner of Standon Calling. The Matthew Bourne Re:Bourne programme of modern ballet performances and workshops will appear at the festival this summer, choreographed by the five time Olivier award winning choreographer himself – Sir Matthew Bourne – in what’s sure to be a truly stunning experience of modern dance of the highest order. From Rockaoke to the Groove Garden, the wellness area boasting hot tubs, Yoga, meditation and more to the Real Ale Festival and the stunning array of curated street food, one-off delicacies and beyond – Standon Calling brings every turn of modern culture into one unforgettable weekend.
Unparalleled and unmissable, Standon Calling 2017 will once again open its gates for a weekend that defines the British festival experience.

Mike Snow

Florence and The Machine to headline Friday at Bestival 2012

Rob da Bank says: “The first time I met Flo she was whirling around like a spinning top to a Paul Simon track at a party I was DJing at. I hadn't even heard her open her mouth but she had this alluring vibe already. Once I heard her scratchy demo I was sold and when she did her first radio session for me at Radio 1 I couldn’t believe this flame-haired eccentric young lady had such a stunning voice. Her shows for us at Bestival and Camp Bestival over the last few years have always been highlights for many and I’m glad we can finally seal the deal with a headline show on the Friday of Bestival and with The xx on before her this promises to go down in the Best of Bestival yearbook!”

Florence & The Machine

A longstanding Bestival buddy, Florence Welch and her trusty Machine have wowed Bestivalites across the years. From her mesmerising performance in the Club Dada tent to a handful of those in the know, to her all-conquering main stage set in 2009, her epic vocals, quirky melodies and self-contained musical world have created some utterly jaw-dropping moments that will live long in Bestival lore. Her second album ‘Ceremonials’, released at the end of last year, has cemented her reputation as one of the biggest stars on the planet and gained her accolades by the bucket-load, so we really are honoured to have her back with us again!

Florence Welch says: “This year we are headlining the one and only Bestival on the main stage on the Friday night after the amazing The xx, we hope we'll find you there in the wilderness with us! Lots of love, Florence + The Machine.”

To celebrate the fact that Florence + the Machine will be headlining on Friday night, they have put together a spectacular video message for us rejoicing in our Wildlife theme, which you can check out on our website, www.bestival.net!

Never ones to do things by halves, we’re also over the moon to announce that Swedish indie-pop doyens Miike Snow will be getting on the ferry across the Solent to join us at Bestival. Lauded for their eponymous debut album that brought them to worldwide attention, the band’s recent sophomore outing, ‘Happy To You’, has upped the infectious factor, as they effortlessly cross genres with their uniquely orchatronic sound. Their live show is a theatrical joy and one not to be missed and we can’t wait to see them!

The band told us: “We of Miike Snow are very happy to be playing Bestival this year, on the fantastical Isle Of Wight. We are looking forward to making sure everyone has a delightful time, and visiting Shanklin Chine. See you all very soon.”

Don’t forget about the recently announced Bestival Blocos either and our, frankly, off the hook carnival-esque Wildlife parade. More info on that can be found here.

We will be announcing our Friday night headliner on Monday 21st May, so keep your eyes peeled for the details and in the meantime make sure you keep on checking in at  www.bestival.net, and our Facebook page and Twitter for all the latest behaviour.

Orbital to headline Slam Tent at T in the Park

DJ Yoda joins the Saturday line up and for the very first time, the Slam Tent will be open from the Friday with Sven Väth and Slam at the helm, playing extra-long sets from 5pm until midnight to bring the big club atmosphere straight into the tent across the weekend of 6th – 8th July.

OrbitalUndefeated champions of British electronic music, Orbital get back in the ring in 2012 with Wonky, their first new album in eight years.  Both timeless and contemporary, heart-warming and exhilarating, Wonky puts a vividly modern spin on their signature blend of richly melodic, deeply emotive electronica.  After seven albums and more than fifteen years together, Orbital took themselves off the scene in 2004 for five years but this only increased demand for their emotionally uplifting music, especially their legendary live shows in front of huge festival crowds.  Orbital first played T in the Parkwith a stunning set in the Slam Tent in 2002 and a decade later they return for what is certain to be one of the seminal music moments of the summer, showcasing festival-rocking anthems in the making as well as vintage live favourites such as Chime andBelfast. Revitalised, rebooted and reunited, Orbital are ready to reclaim their title as lightheaded lords of the dance arena, at T in the Park 2012.
 
With his 2010 European tour boasting in excess of 100,000 attendees, Paul Kalkbrenner marked a milestone in the realm of live electronic music performance.  The tour followed his acting debut as the fictitious DJ Ikarus in the modern cult classic Berlin Calling and until then, no other musician from Germany had established himself in this genre with such overwhelming response, not just from all the dancefloors, but also in the hearts of newfound fans from beyond the club and techno scenes. Whether behind the decks or infront of the camera, Paul Kalkbrenner’s success story continues to soar and fans are in for a treat when he performs his first ever live set in Scotland, in theSlam Tent at T in the Park 2012.
 
DJ YodaDJ Yoda is no ordinary scratch DJ.  His seminal How to Cut & Paste series showcased a tongue-in-check mixing style that prompted Q Magazine to declare him ‘one of the top 10 DJ’s to see before you die’. From hip-hop beginnings, DJ Yoda has evolved in the past ten years using his turntable skills and diverse influences as varied as Funk, B-more, Kuduro, Reggae, Drum’n’Bass and even Big Band Swing and Country and Western to make unashamed party music. Trail-blazing into the world of audio-visual, he pioneered a new art form, using cutting edge technology to scratch and mix visuals on top of his DJ sets in the clubs. Fans can prepare for a very special set in the Slam Tentthis summer.
 
Gary Beck is regarded as one of the most prolific and inventive producers in the current electronic music scene. Renowned for his own unique sound, Gary is currently in high demand all over the world. Championed by many of the biggest names in techno, including Pete Tong, Dubfire, Chris Liebing, Len Faki, Nic Fanciulli and Richie Hawtin, Gary is set to release his début album on Slam's Soma Recordings in autumn this year.
 
Hans Bouffmyhre started off promoting his own party in Glasgow called 'Sleaze' booking and playing alongside some of the world’s best Techno acts. His own releases have gained huge support from the best in Techno, including Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Adam Beyer, Len Faki, Marco Carola, Steve Lawler, Laurent Garnier, Stephan Bodzin, Joris Voorn and many more. At only 24, the future looks bright for Hans Bouffmyhre.
 
The Slam Tent is a T in the Park essential for the discerning music lover with a taste for the finest beats around.  Over the years the Slam Tent has hosted juggernaut sets from the likes of Leftfield, Daft Punk, Fatboy Slim, Derrick May, Wu-Tang Clan and Laurent Garnier to name just a few of the performance titans to play stand out sets.  With an atmosphere second to none, a whole extra night to party (Friday) and mind blowing sets a plenty – 2012’s line up is guaranteed to please, way into the night.

OrbitalThe Secret Garden Party is pleased to announce the initial music line up for its 10th birthday celebrations.  Headliners include electronic pioneers Orbital, and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros who are fronted by the enigmatic IMA ROBOT  Alex Ebert.  Appropriately for the party’s anniversary year, the Gardeners are thrilled to welcome back KT Tunstall, whose last appearance at the Secret Garden Party was way back in 2004!!  Other highlights include legendary Jamaican rocksteady singer Little Roy, Alexander (Alex Ebert's side project) and ear-busting garage rockers The Jim Jones Revue. Well known for championing new music over its 14 live music stages. the gardeners are already tipping Pearl And The Beard, Legendary Tigerman and Scanners for big things in 2012.

The real power of the party is not just about what you are watching or doing, but the fact that you are watching and doing it together. This summer, for the garden’s 10th birthday celebrations, gardeners can expect to be united under the theme ‘Standing on Ceremony’, with more collective celebration, interactive theatre, hypnotic ceremonies and breathtaking spectacles than ever before. The garden will once again play host to an abundance of new dramatic and innovative artworks by a huge range of rising installation artists from all over the world. 

We will see the return of many garden favourites such as OneTaste, Wormfood's Valley of the Antics, The Crossroads, The Artful Badgers, The Feast of Fools, Bearded Kitten's infamous Collo-Silly-Um, Where the Wild Things Are, The Pagoda, The Living Room, Small World, Tax Deductible’s Never-Ever Land Theatre and of course, the Dance Off.  The much loved Remix Bubble will be coming back even bigger and better as 'The Temple of Boom' and the Pirate Technic's crew are already working hard on their most ambitious creation yet for the legendary lake stage.  

There will be even more radical action camps encouraging play and participation across the party. Over the last few years, the intellectual platforms in particular have grown very rapidly, developing handsomely to form an exciting area unique to The Secret Garden Party.  Each space is lovingly programmed by fellow gardeners and together they offer a very alternative programme of talks, debates, discussions, science experiments, poetry, theatre, games and workshops.  There are numerous camps where gardeners can go to be edified, enlightened and enthralled. This summer we can expect wild rituals and mind bending discussions led by some of the country’s finest experts in their fields.

Of course, delicious fine-dining cuisine will be on offer in the Soul Fire Restaurant and there are even more Boutique Camping luxuries to choose from this summer too.   

Bestival announce theme and first acts for 2012

OrbitalWith some rather handsome Bestival announcements on the horizon, the mighty Rob da Bank and the Bestival crew are so excited that we just can’t contain ourselves! So, with that in mind, we’re going to ‘leak’ a few choice nuggets of loveliness for your delectation with12 new things for Bestival 2012 including our untamed fancy dress theme and a tantalising touch of live news.

Rob da Bank says: "I’ve never been pestered so much on Twitter and even in clubs and on the street about who’s playing Bestival this year so we thought we'd better start the proceedings. Legendary brothers of rave Paul and Phil Hartnoll aka Orbital are the first act who have self-announced themselves today…and what a classic to kick off on. As ever the theme of Bestival is a hotly debated topic – this year its Wildlife – so maybe you're thinking foxes, badgers or flamingos or go a bit more lateral and think of wild men and women, hedonists and crazy people? It’s an open book as ever. More news very soon!”

So, without further ado, here’s what’s brand new this year!

1) The theme for Bestival 2012 is Wildlife…We want you to unleash the party beast from the hinterlands of your imagination, covering Robin Hill with some properly wild things, from fantastic fauna, kings of the jungle and even organisms aplenty to just the outrageously wild… The sky is far from the limit of what can happen when you get amongst the wildlife….And we will also be launching our very own Insect Museum and Animal Tug of War.

2) Barter for Bestival – can’t afford a ticket? Then barter yourself to us for a few hours to help with an IOW charity legacy project in exchange for a free Bestival ticket! 50 people from far and wide will get the opportunity to help create a community allotment space working with Natural Enterprise.  Applications will open on 20th February when full details are announced so watch this space.?

3) Film is coming to Bestival in 2012 – new for 2012 are the Lost Picture Show – a vintage cinema to take you back to the golden age of movie going, plus Rob da Bank will be rescoring the 1930s original of King Kong at the brand new Amphitheatre performance space in the Woods with more film collaborations to be announced soon.

4) Soul Park – our new and expanded Healing Area will feature unique spaces for yoga, massage, relaxation, hammocks and meditation with the David Lynch Foundation plus wood-burning Scandinavian hot tubs and a sauna area.  Perfectly calm for when you just need to relax a little and refresh to get your positive energy recharged.?

5) Arcadia Mechanical Cabaret – not content with having invented the crazy mechanical spider that spits flames and has scared the living pants off us at the last few Bestis, Arcadia have now trawled the world for brand new structures and insane fire art to wow us with, much of it from Burning Man.

6) Young British Foodies – We’ve got the country’s finest young chefs, street food vendors, bakers and mixologists all under one roof! Winners of the nationwide search for the most talented Young British Foodies will be joined by the YBF all-star foodie judges to create a never-been-done-before, spectacular eating experience.

7) The Bollywood Bar is having a complete Josie da Bank makeover – with an old London bus being transformed into a Bollywood chill out bar in full Indian colours and the inside getting a cinematic Bollywood lick of paint.

8) Grand Palace of Entertainment – roll up roll up, we’ve cranked up the fun factor with this new venue! Expect twisted cabaret, raucous games and quizzes, dancing-lycra-clad-bearded trannies and multicolored, glitter strewn, late night parties. ?

9) More camping space – yes we may not be expanding on capacity onsite cos we know we’re the right size but we will be creating much more space for you… check out this aerial picture showing you all the new land we’ve taken.

10) Create a bloco for the Bestival Carnival – Your chance to unite with other festi-goers and get creative! We are inviting you to form your own bloco and be part of ourcarnival parade on Saturday afternoon. From fabulous costumes, to drumming,dancing and giant puppets, we can’t wait to see what delights you come up with! Details of how to enter coming soon.

11) Cycle To Bestival – emulate mighty Mark Cavendish with a truly Olympic effort to ride almost 100miles from Central London to Bestival…and raise cash for charity. More details will be available at the end of the month but you can get in training now if sounds like fun to you… on yer bike Bestivalites. ?

12) Rob da Bank’s Music Club – Are you a rock star in the making? Head to Rob da Bank’s Music Club to find out! This project, set up in partnership with the Isle of Wight Youth Trust, is coming to Robin Hill to offer up a brilliant selection music and arts workshops. 
  
As well as all the brand spanking fresh stuff there’s going to be a healthy dose of unbridled joy on the dancefloor too, as Bestival are overjoyed to declare that dance music legends Orbital will be crossing the Solent to join us for an epicurean adventure, or as we used to call it a proper rave up, headlining the Big Top on Sunday night! Renowned for their festival annihilating brilliance and a dashing line in torch specs, the brothers Hartnoll are true pioneers of dance music and with a brand new album, ‘Wonky’ currently getting the critics all giddy, you can expect nothing less than a legendary set!

With many more acts to announce for Bestival 2012 and to build just a touch of anticipation for our headline announcements, Rob da Bank will be taking to his trusty Twitter announcing an act a day until mid-February when we’ll be announcing some headliner news. Until then, make sure you check the Twitter feed for news on some of the many acts that will be gracing Bestival 2012 with their presence.
