The Saturday will have headline performances from Richie Hawtin and Leftfield while Izzy Bizzu and Anne-Marie will play earlier in the day. Sunday will see The Human League and Jagwar Ma oversee proceedings with Honne and Mura Masa (who makes our pick of the acts at Warehouse Project) also making appearances.

Shy FX will bring his party on the moon to the festival's opening night with a line up curated by the man himself. This includes the likes of Giggs, Redlight, General Levy before the Digital Soundboy takes over with his drum'n'bass dub styling (listen above).

All of this precedes a headline slot from Hot Chip in what promises to be a huge night of music - see the Bestival line up in full.
