Bestival announces Chemical Brothers and Underworld as first headliners
Bestival has revealed its first wave of headliners for its ‘Summer of Love’ 2015 edition. Taking place on the storied Isle of Wight from September 10-13, the UK festival has announced Underworld and Chemical Brothers as its Thursday and Saturday night headliners respectively. The dance legends are joined by seminal pop acts Duran Duran and The Jacksons, as well as on the more contemporary tip, Flying Lotus, Tame Impala, Duke Dumont, Gorgon City and more. Techno will also receive its fair share of airtime with Tale of Us, Seth Troxler, Guy Gerber, and Ben UFO performing.
Event organizer Rob da Bank said of the lineup: “We’re taking it right back to our roots for the 12th annual Bestival… this edition of Bestival, with its Summer of Love theme, is all about one huge musical, well, orgy… So, returning friends the Chemical Brothers rave alongside iconic popstars Duran Duran and The Jacksons, and some of my favourite modern musical mavericks – Tame Impala, Flying Lotus and Jungle – jump in bed together… and this is just the start of the party.”
Further headliners for the remaining days will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for Bestival are available for purchase now.
