Peter Hook and others heading to Bestival

Cate Le Bon is heading to the Isle of Wight for Bestival 2014.

A PERFORMANCE of the iconic Joy Division album Unknown Pleasures by bass player Peter Hook and his band The Light, is among the latest highlights announced for this year’s Bestival.

The former Joy Division and New Order bassist will be in action on the Isle of Wight in September, performing in the Big Top, organisers have announced.

Other top acts announced today (Tuesday) include Darkside, SBTRKT, Temples, Cate Le Bon and dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip.

Bestival has teamed up with BBC Radio 6 Music to create the Big Top line-up and curator Rob da Bank said: "I probably spend more time in the Big Top at Bestival than in any other space.

"The main stage has lots of huge and excellent acts on, but the Big Top is the intimate beating heart of Bestival and getting sweaty with 10,000 other Bestivalites to the most cutting edge indie, electronic and folk acts is always fun."

BBC Radio 6 Music Editor James Stirling said: "The fantastic line-up on The Big Top stage follows 6 Music’s ethos of mixing alternative-spirited established artists such as Beck and Basement Jaxx with emerging talent such as Temples and Cate Le Bon. Some of our presenting family will be there DJing, introducing some of the artists on-stage and generally bringing the spirit of the festival alive for our audience."

Also due to perform are DJ Yoda, Nick Mulvey, Denai Moore, Public Service Broadcasting, Radiophonic Workshop and Ady Sulieman.
