Bestival have announced the talent for their first ever festival to take place in Dorset, with a huge host of names lined up. As you'd expect from a Bestival line up the music is hugely wide-ranging, with headline turns from A Tribe Called Quest, The XX and Pet Shop Boys.

A new dance music stage, entitled the temple, features Annie Mac, Andy C and Maceo Plex, whilst across the various stages Jamie T, Little Dragon, Mr Scruff, DJ Shadow and Justice all on board - making for another mouth-watering ensemble of eclectica at one of the most well-loved festivals on the UK circuit.

After a prolonged stay on Robin Hill Farm on the Isle of Wight, Rob da Bank's festival made the decision to move the festival to the mainland, the same site with which he has hosted the family-friendly little sibling Camp Bestival. Unsure what to expect? Check out Favourite bits of Bestival 2016 as in indicator of what fun lies in wait.
