The Wight Stuff: Muse to Headline Bestival

Muse to Headline Bestival

Rob Da Bank’s Isle of Wight bash also features The Chemical Brothers, Charli XCX and Tame Impala.

In an interview backstage at The Snooker World Championship, Muse’s Matt Bellamy let slip that the band will be headlining Bestival in September. In more on-topic news, he also reveals that he enjoys playing snooker, but he’s not as good as his cousin.

Muse have got a busy summer of touring ahead of them in support of their sixth studio album, 'Drones'. Headline slots across Europe see them taking on Download, Bilbao BBK Live, and Pinkpop alongside a handful of North American dates, which start next week. Muse have also announced a three night stint at the 22,000 capacity Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico.

Bestival takes place on the Isle of Wight from September 10th, and features the likes of The Chemical Brothers, Charli XCX, Tame Impala, Underworld and Skrillex. Watch Matt Bellamy's interview below:
