A HOST of bands and DJs have been added to the Bestival 2013 bill, including hot new band Savages, dub reggae star Max Romeo — who recorded with Lee Scratch Perry — jazz maestro Courtney Pine and Musical Youth.
Former Oasis guitarist Paul 'Bonehead’ Arthur’s new band, Parlour Flames, has also been added to the line-up, along with live acts James Blake, Child of Lov and Introducing, who will recreate Daft Punk’s Discovery album.
They will join a bill featuring Elton John, Snoop Dogg, MIA, Wu Tang Clan, Flaming Lips and Johnny Marr.
Rob da Bank said: "Bestival is ten years old this year and I always want our festival to stay fresh and new, so I’m well pleased with the latest artist additions.
"Courtney Pine, legendary jazz musician, is going to open the whole birthday spectacular on the Thursday and from that point on we're gonna be treated to a plethora of new bands and talent from indie upstarts Savages and London Grammar to incredible electronic explorations from Hieroglyphic Being and Evian Christ.
"Not forgetting returning hero James Blake who’s part of the fabric of recent Bestivals. Hope you enjoy listening to all this lovely lot!"
