Loyle Carner, Twin Atlantic & Skinny Girl Diet join Bestival 2017

The three acts will join the likes of The xx, Jamie T and Circa Waves at this year’s weekender.

Ahead of a full announcement of new acts tomorrow morning (Thursday 23rd March), we can exclusively reveal three of the latest artists to be added to the Bestival bill.

Loyle Carner, Twin Atlantic and Skinny Girl Diet are three of the latest names to be added to the line-up of this year’s weekender, which is moving from its infamous Isle of Wight home to a rather wonderful spot in Dorset.

They’ll be joining the likes of The xx, Jamie T, Circa Waves and A Tribe Called Quest, who have all been previously confirmed for this year’s event.

Elsewhere on the line-up for 2017, Pet Shop Boys, Justice, Danny Brown, Dizzee Racel and Lucy Rose will all be making appearances. This year’s theme also comes in the form of colour - so get prepped!

Bestival 2017 ends the summer’s schedule on the weekend of 7th - 10th September, and takes place at the Lulworth Estate. For more information and to buy tickets, head here.
