Having announced this year's Bestival theme as the future, organisers have now confirmed two of the three headline acts set to perform at this year's event.
The Cure and Major Lazer will top the Friday and Saturday legs of the festival respectively, with Sunday's main act yet to be announced.
Festival organiser Rob Da Bank said, “So, here we go again, but this time we’re going far… far away… into the future. Prepare yourselves for a Bestival unlike any other with futuristic new stages, and as ever it’s a broad church of music from every decade and every genre. Saturday night headliners and one of my favourite bands ever, The Cure, played Bestival five years ago and almost had to be dragged off stage after a three-hour mammoth greatest hits set. Robert Smith popped down last year and we shook hands on it all happening again… bring it on!
“Friday honours go to Major Lazer who have killed it every time they’ve played, on a bigger stage each time – I remember going to see an exhausted, sweating Diplo after his last main stage show for us and he said ‘headline next time?’, so here we are!
A number of others acts including Hot Chip, Animal Collective, Damian Marley, Years & Years, and more have also been announced for this year's festivities.
