Bestival announces an exciting 2013 line-up
Elton John and Snoop Dogg have been announced as headliners for Bestival 2013.
The musical festival, now in it's tenth year, will be the first major UK festival Sir Elton John has headlined.
Bestival takes place from September 5-8 within picturesque surroundings of the Robin Hill Country Park, in the Isle of Wight.
Each year curators Josie and Rob Da Bank select a fancy dress theme and 2013 will see the festival become HMS Bestival.
Sir Elton John is set to headline on the Sunday evening of the festival, with it being the 40th anniversary of his Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album.
He said: "I haven’t played any of the major festivals in the UK in recent years, so when the opportunity to play Bestival came up I was very interested.
"I’ve heard that the Bestival audience comes in fancy dress and I can’t wait to see that - they must all look amazing from the stage."
Hip-hop icon Snoop Dogg is to headline the festival on Saturday night, with an album produced with Major Lazer on its way.
MIA, who hails from Mitcham, will also be performing a UK festival exclusive set, as well as Franz Ferdinand and Belle & Sebastian.
Clapham-born Jessie Ware is set to perform, as well as South London based dance acts Disclosure and Erol Alklan.
