New Order to headline Bestival festival on Isle of Wight

New Order

New Order have been named as the Saturday night headliner for Bestival.

The iconic Manchester band reformed last August and are most famous for their classic song Blue Monday.

Other acts also confirmed for Saturday include Friendly Fires, electro rockers Death in Vegas and art-pop quartet Django Django

The festival takes place at the Isle of Wight’s Robin Hill Country Park between 6-9 September, and this year will have a wildlife fancy dress theme.

Previously announced for Bestival are The xx, Sigur Ros, Two Door Cinema Club, Orbital, Emeli Sande, Azealia Banks and Michael Kiwanuka.

A new performance area will also be in place – the Amphitheatre will be “nestled under a canopy of trees” and feature music, comedy, theatre and poetry.

Bestival was first held in 2004 and is organised by Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank.

Its fancy dress theme encourages fans to dress up and recent years have seen themes like fantasy, space, and rock stars, pop stars and divas.
