Florence + The Machine to headline Friday night at Bestival

More News

Miike Snow will also join the Wildlife Extravaganza this year

Bestival have announced that the Friday night headliner is to be Florence + The Machine. It has also been confirmed that Miike Snow will be joining the Robin Hill extravaganza this September…    

“The first time I met Flo she was whirling around like a spinning top to a Paul Simon track at a party I was DJing at. I hadn't even heard her open her mouth but she had this alluring vibe already. Once I heard her scratchy demo I was sold and when she did her first radio session for me at Radio 1 I couldn’t believe this flame-haired eccentric young lady had such a stunning voice. Her shows for us at Bestival and Camp Bestival over the last few years have always been highlights for many and I’m glad we can finally seal the deal with a headline show on the Friday of Bestival and with The xx on before her this promises to go down in the Best of Bestival yearbook!”
Rob da Bank

Florence Welch and her trusty Machine have wowed Bestivalites across the years. From her mesmerising performance in the Club Dada tent to a handful of those in the know, to her all-conquering main stage set in 2009, her epic vocals, quirky melodies and self-contained musical world have created some utterly jaw-dropping moments that will live long in Bestival lore.

“This year we are headlining the one and only Bestival on the main stage on the Friday night after the amazing The xx, we hope we'll find you there in the wilderness with us! Lots of love, Florence + The Machine.”

Swedish indie-pop doyens Miike Snow will also be performing at Bestival this year. Lauded for their eponymous debut album that brought them to worldwide attention, the band’s recent sophomore outing, ‘Happy To You’, has upped the infectious factor, as they effortlessly cross genres with their uniquely orchatronic sound. Their live show is a theatrical joy and one not to be missed.

“We of Miike Snow are very happy to be playing Bestival this year, on the fantastical Isle Of Wight. We are looking forward to making sure everyone has a delightful time, and visiting Shanklin Chine. See you all very soon.”

Bestival has HUGE plans for 2012 and will be bringing sets from the legendary Stevie Wonder, New Order, The xx, Sigur Rós, Friendly Fires, Orbital, Frank Ocean, Hot Chip, Annie Mac Presents, Skream & Benga, Four Tet going back to back with Caribou and so much more.

Expect all the usual mayhem, madness and magic with the Wishing Tree, the Swamp Shack, Tomorrow’s World, the Wall of Death the Roller Disco and Ambient Forest or even a brand new Grand Palace of Entertainment and plenty of bounteous bohemian treats for you to enjoy.

Bestival - 6-9th September 2012 - Robin Hill Countryside Adventure Park, Isle of Wight
