Bestival is back and this year the festival will be taking place in its new home of Lulworth Estate, Dorset. Organisers have revealed details of 2017’s line-up, which includes headliner performances from The XX, A Tribe Called Quest and Pet Shop Boys.
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”.
