Bestival: OutKast revealed as headliners

OutKast rappers Andre 3000 and Big Boi will be on the Isle of Wight in September headlining Bestival.

OUTKAST have been named as the first headline act confirmed for this year's Bestival.

The recently reformed hip-hop duo will head to the Isle of Wight in September for what will be one of only two UK festival performances this year.

Organisers also revealed this year's fancy dress theme — Desert Island Disco.

Curator Rob da Bank said: "Hey ya!  By the power invested in me as chief Bestival booker, I'm pretty darn excited to announce that OutKast are headlining Bestival this year.  We've fought hard to get the recently reunited legendary hip-hop duo onto the ferry.  

"And it's no ordinary ferry this year as Bestival goes Desert Island Disco for 2014.  Palm trees, grass skirts and mirrorballs are the order of the day. It truly is gonna be the Bestival yet!"

Bestival takes place at Robin Hill, from September 4 to 7.
