Other | Friday 28th February 2014 | James

    Bestival has confirmed Beck and Foals will join Outkast as the event's 2014 headliners, as part of an announcement that revealed 9 other new acts now set to play the festival.

   The new wave of confirmed acts now due to play the event also includes Disclosure, Major Lazer, Wild Beasts, Chvrches, Laura Mvula, London Grammar, Sam Smith, Caribou and Clean Bandit. 

   However, it is Beck and Foals who join reunited soul-funk due Outkast as headliners of the annual Isle of Wight festival, each headlining the Thursday, Saturday and Friday night slots respectively, and festival organiser and DJ Rob da Bank said in a statement; "Foals were voted best live act of last year and I’m delighted they’ll be headlining the Saturday night – there’s no better indie guitar band in the UK right now," the 40 year old Radio 1 DJ claimed. "Also donning a grass skirt and mirrorball is a total icon of popular music and one of my favourite songwriters, Beck, plus disco darlings Disclosure, Diplo and his Major Lazer crew and all the hottest new bands from London Grammar to Clean Bandit. So get out of your deckchair and get ready to disco, my friends!”

   Taking place from 4th-7th of September at the Robin Hill Country Park, the festival also recently announced its fancy dress plans for 2014, and following last years 'HMS Bestival', 2014's event will play host to a 'Desert Island Disco' theme this September.
