Organisers have today confirmed that the New York rapper and lyricist will still appear at the festival in September, depsite her recent announcement that she's cancelling all summer appearances.
Organisers have also announced that Frank Ocean and M.Ward will appear at the three day festival in September.
With 10 fantastic fields of Bestival’s own inimitable magical mayhem and 20 stages of the best music around, including headline sets from Stevie Wonder and New Order, exclusive performances from The xx and Sigur Rós and hundreds of amazing live bands and DJs, Bestival is already shaping up to be pretty darn incredible.
And things just got more exciting with the announcement that the one and only Frank Ocean will be rocking the party at Robin Hill. One of world renowned hip-hop collective OFWGKTA’s major players, at just 24 Frank is already a well established songwriter to the stars including Beyonce and John Legend and can count the likes of Kayne West and Jay Z amongst his collaborators.
Also announced today is indie-folk heavyweight M. Ward. A stalwart of the American folk scene, who also releases records as part of She & Him with Zooey Deschanel and acclaimed super-group Monsters of Folk with members of My Morning Jacket and Bright Eyes, his seventh and latest solo album, ‘A Wasteland Companion’, has been critically acclaimed for its pastoral Americana.

Rob da Bank says: “With the Friday headliner coming in a few weeks I thought we'd ramp up the excitement a bit more for Besti-goers with the additions of Frank Ocean and M Ward. Two totally different artists from across the Atlantic, Frank is one of the most requested acts on our messageboards and he's such an incredible performer - like a young Prince! M Ward is a folk and indie legend already and we’re very excited to welcome him for the first time!”
