London Grammar, MIA, Jorja Smith and Mura Masa lead huge names for Bestival 2018

The big bash itself returns to Dorset between August 2nd-5th, with a huge bunch of names confirmed already
A whole bunch of names have been confirmed for this year’s Bestival – and it’s looking like a right ‘ol party if we ever did see one.

Leading the way are headliners London Grammar and MIA – with Jorja Smith confirmed for a special slot headlining the Big Top on the Thursday night in a UK Festival Exclusive performance (along with a very sneaky Friday night headliner to be confirmed). Across the board there’s some corking sets lined up from the likes of Mura Masa, Grace Jones, Plan B, First Aid Kit, Thundercat, Mabel, Django Django and more – with plenty of certified Dork faves thrown in the mix too.

Phil Taggart will be bringing his revered Slacker club night to the festival, with a stage takeover boasting big hitters like Shame, Ratboy, Superfood, Black Honey, Confidence Man and whenyoung – whilst Nilufer Yanya, Mr Jukes and We Are Scientists are lining up to deliver big’uns at every opportunity.

With a huge dance lineup, more random activities to throw ya sticks at and – most importantly – the East 17 Christmas Party, you can guarantee that trip down to Dorset is going to be well worth ya while.

Tickets are on sale now, so would be a pretty good idea to snap ‘em up sharpish.
