Festivals: Soulwax to replace Justice at Bestival

Soulwax to replace Justice at Bestival

They’ll also be playing a DJ set as 2manydjs in Dorset this weekend.

With Bestival kicking off tomorrow in Dorset, it’s been announced that Soulwax will be taking the place of Justice on Sunday.

In a statement on Facebook, Bestival said: “It is with much regret that we must announce today that Justice will not be performing at Bestival on Sunday due to production and technical issues beyond the band and Bestival’s mutual control”.

They continued: “However, we can confirm that long-time festival favourites Soulwax will replace Justice on the Castle Stage, followed by the Deawaele brothers making an appearance on the return of the much-loved HMS Bestival stage for a 2manydjs DJ set”.

This weekend, the festival will also welcome The xx, A Tribe Called Quest, Danny Brown, Jamie T, and many more.
