The xx, Jamie T, Circa Waves and A Tribe Called Quest are heading to Bestival 2017

There’s a big lineup and a big party in store between September 7th - 10th
After announcing that it’d be relocating this year to Lulworth Estate in Dorset, Bestival has revealed its first wave of artists for this year’s festival – headlined by The xx, Pet Shop Boys and A Tribe Called Quest.

Taking place between September 7th-10th, it’s the stunning party to end all stunning parties – with sets lined up from the likes of Jamie T (headlining The Box stage), Justice, Little Dragon, Circa Waves, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, Dizzee Rascal, Formation, DJ Shadow and heaps more.

Talking about their headline slot, The xx said:

“Bestival was one of the first festivals we played, back in 2010, and it had always been a dream for us… we even begged to play the previous year! In 2012 we returned to play the main stage and we’re so happy to say we’ll be headlining this year, at the new site in Dorset. The Isle of Wight will hold a special place in our hearts but we’re excited to bring our new show to their new home.”

Expect a whole load more across their plethora of stages to be announced over the coming months, with tickets for the festival on sale now.
