The Chemical Brothers & Tame Impala for Bestival 2015

Underworld, Jungle and The Jacksons have also been confirmed in the fest’s first announcement.

Bestival 2015 have announced its first slew of acts, with The Chemical Brothers, Tame Impala and Underworld leading the way.

The weekender, which takes place on the Isle of Wight in September, will also play host to the likes of Jungle, Flying Lotus, Duran Duran, The Jacksons, Little Dragon and Kate Tempest.

This year’s Bestival takes place form 10th to 13th September, at Robin Hill on Isle Of Wight. Last week, organisers Josie and Rob da Bank confirmed that this year’s theme is the Summer of Love.

Speaking of the initial announcement, da Bank says: “We’re taking it right back to our roots for the 12th annual Bestival. It’s also the 20th birthday of the club where it all started - Sunday Best, and that club and our beloved Bestival were founded on some pretty simple aims - listen to amazing music, make new friends, have fun, and maybe stay up all night. Two decades later we’re rigidly sticking to those principles, and this edition of Bestival, with its Summer of Love theme, is all about one huge musical, well, orgy… So, returning friends the Chemical Brothers rave alongside iconic popstars Duran Duran and The Jacksons, and some of my favourite modern musical mavericks - Tame Impala, Flying Lotus and Jungle - jump in bed together… and this is just the start of the party… Watch this space and feel the love!”

Tickets for this year’s Bestival go on sale on today from here.
