The excitement never stops at Bestival HQ! Following the first line-up announcement, which included the amazing Sigur Rós, The xx, Two Door Cinema Club, Justice, Hot Chip, 2manydjs, Annie Mac Presents and loads more, plus the acts that have been announced on Twitter in the last week, they have now revealed the Saturday night headliner as the mighty New Order.
Rob da Bank says: “So I’ve got Blue Monday blaring out of the Bestival HQ office speakers as we unveil our iconic Saturday night headliner New Order. It doesn’t get better than that… but it does! True Faith, Bizarre Love Triangle, Fine Time, Regret – so many amazing records I grew up listening to and still listen to now and they still sound immense, pioneering, legendary. See you down the front!”
Since the band’s reformation in August last year, with Gillian Gilbert back among their ranks, interest in the band has been at fever pitch so it’s an absolute coup that they’re coming to Robin Hill to play a headline set at Bestival! With an armoury of anthems stretching back three decades, New Order live is an essential experience.
Also confirmed are live appearances from Friendly Fires, who will be unleashing their trademark live spectacular in their own inimitably vibrant and widescreen way, psychedelic electro-rockers Death in Vegas, super-hot eclectic art-pop quartet Django Django, the brooding Daughter, rave horn aficionado Drums of Death and the anthemic indie-dance of Zulu Winter.
Remember there are still two more headliners to announce, and lots more fun and frolics to let you know about, so keep your eyes on our beautiful new site www.bestival.net, which is still just in its first phase plus our Facebook and Rob da Bank’s Twitter for all the latest action.
