Elbow also set to headline Sunday night

The additions of Doves, The Horrors (pictured), Appleblim, Martyn and 2562 have significantly bolstered this year’s Bestival line-up.

Elbow – who will headline the Sunday night – The Big Pink and Toddla T are also among the new names for the festival, which takes place from 11th – 13th September at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight.

Tickets for the weekend are available now at a cost of £140 for adults and £70 for those aged 13 – 15. Is perception notably impaired during those two, awkward years? We’re not sure what the scientific basis behind Bestival’s pricing is, but kids aged 12 and under get in free.
