A longstanding Bestival favourite, Florence Welch and her trusty Machine have appeared at Bestival at different points in her career - 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.
Now she returns in the festival's top slot, to headline Friday night's line-up. 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.
To celebrate the announcement, Florence and the Machine have put together this special video messagee:
