Odd Future, Tom Vek, Professor Green, Hercules and Love Affair and Crystal Fighters are amongst the latest acts revealed for Bestival 2011

Arguably the most exciting hip-hop act to have emerged in years, Odd Future will be flying in to the Isle of Wight from LA. A true musical phenomenon headed up by Tyler The Creator, OFWGKTA’s live shows are about as punk rock as it’s possible to get.

Comeback king Tom Vek will also be returning to Bestival. After a mysterious six year hiatus, Tom Vek’s new album ‘Leisure Seizure’ looks set to be one of the albums of the summer.

Hackney’s finest Professor Green will be hyping the crowd with his trademark mix of attitude and heavy hooks, while Sunday Best trio Kitty, Daisy And Lewis will be making a very welcome return to Bestival, treating Bestivalites to self-penned tracks from their critically acclaimed new album ‘Smoking in Heaven’.

New York discoid grooves will come courtesy of Hercules and Love Affair, Crystal Fighters will deliver a salvo of  Anglo-Spanish electro action and Sound of Rum, another gem amongst Sunday Best’s august stable of delights, will be blowing the crowds away with fat beats and devastating rhymes.  

There will also be sets from Alex Winston, Ben Howard, Brigitte Aphrodite, Catherine A.D., Catherine Okada, Chancery Blame And The Gadjo Club, Cheviot Hill, Chris Peck & The Family Tree, Dog Is Dead, Dr Syntax, Fly Frankie Fly, Ghostpoet, Gideon's Demise, Goodbye Stereo, Gypsy & The Cat, Hempolics, Jackson Analogue, James Owen Fender, Losers, Lucy Rose, Luke Concannon, Mazes, Mc Xander, Mirrors, Nosaj Thing, Paul Chambers, Paul Kalkbrenner, Punk's Not Dad, Puzzle Muteson, Secret Rivals, Stopmakingme, Subgiant, Tall Ships, The Chapman Family, The Fan Jets, The Piney Gir Country Roadshow, Tripwires, Various Cruelties, and Woo Woos.

These latest acts will be joining an already astounding line up that includes The Cure, Pendulum, Primal Scream, Brian Wilson, Public Enemy, Mogwai and loads more.
