Fatboy Slim to join headliners at 10th birthday bash
DJ Norman Cook joins top billing with Elton John and Snoop Dogg at Isle of Wight festival this September.
Fatboy Slim will return to headline Bestival for its 10th anniversary this year, having been one of the headliners at the first event.

The big beat-era superstar DJ joins Elton John and Snoop Dogg as the third headliner to be announced for this year's bash on the Isle of Wight, taking place from 5 to 8 September at Robin Hill Park.

Norman Cook was one of the original headliners when DJ Rob Da Bank's party first started in 2004. He told the Guardian: "It was at Glastonbury 2003 where I closed the Sunday Best stage for Rob Da Bank and I first saw the glint in his eye to create his own festival. Twelve months later I was headlining Bestival, and 10 years later here I am headlining the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg. It's an absolute honour to return to headline this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times. You've come a long way, baby!"

The Friday night headline show is being dubbed Fatboy Slim's Bestival Birthday Bash, and promises to mash up the festival's decade-long history, with "on-stage birthday party antics and some very special surprises".
Rob Da Bank added: "I can't believe Bestival is going to be 10 … but it is and that's great, because we get to be even more mental with our on-site creations and general madness. We wanted to have a big moment for all our amazing crew and the beautiful Bestivalisties, whether they've been with us for the last decade or even just this year, so we went back to one of our headliners from the first year and someone who's supported us since our early days in clubland."
This year's event is being dubbed HMS Bestival, with the famous fancy-dress parade adopting a nautical theme.

Likewise, if you would like to purchase a Bestival ticket, the ONLY place we recommend that you go to is www.thetickettrust.com
The Ticket Trust has been created by the Association of Independent Festivals and Sandbag to offer a safe and secure ticket exchange to help correct the secondary ticketing problem. Comprising a group of promoters, artists and music industry professionals embarrassed by what they see happening to tickets to their events - the exploitation of fans' pockets! The Ticket Trust has created a place where music lovers can exchange unwanted tickets at face value, providing a platform for safe, secure and legitimate ticket exchange - without the over inflated mark-ups. This is the promoters' and artists' answer to the secondary ticketing market which seeks to make big profits - taking hard earned cash away from the fans, the musicians and the live events we all love.

MIRRORS

DJ: MARK JONES / ARTHUR BAKER / RICHARD X

Opening the gates to our vast world of escapist pleasures on the Thursday for the fourth year running, Bestival is now firmly established as a four-day festival of joy and, as ever, we have some proper mind-blowing entertainment in store for you. Heading Back To The Phuture, we welcome the return of Mark Jones’ timeless electro-fest to kick off the festival in finest style, mixing up appearances from electro-pop legends with cutting edge synth-lords to set you up for a glorious weekend in our party paradise.

Back To The Phuture kingpin Mark Jones explains: “After last year’s amazing, amazing opening I'm really very excited and proud to be going Back To The Phuture at Bestival once again. This year’s line up shows an incredible link of talent from the nu-discoid stomp of Hercules and Love Affair to the mutant muscle of Blancmange and the inspired electro soul of Santigold to the sythnfluences of OneTwo and Mirrors. You join the e-(electro)-dots and go Back To The Phuture.

“DJs Arthur Baker and Richard X give us even more to smile about, oh and the fact that this year it’s Rockstars, Popstars and Divas is the icing on the cake for me too! mmmmmmm yum yum ;)”

Joining the previously announced new wave alt. hip-hop chanteuse Santigold will be New York disco dons Hercules and Love Affair whose critically acclaimed second album ‘Blue Songs’ has seen them become a permanent fixture on dancefloors across the world. The legends come thick and fast with electro-pop duo Blancmange who will be showcasing their timeless pop classics, including ‘Living On The Ceiling’, ‘Blind Vision’ and ‘Don’t Tell Me’ taken from their four critically acclaimed albums and OneTwo a bonafide super group featuring the dulcet tones of Propaganda’s Claudia Brucken and OMD’s musical genius Paul Humphreys tackling the synths. And taking the synth action right up to date, Brighton’s Mirrors will be dropping their own inimitable take on electronic soul for your delectation.

Ensuring you’ll be dancing into the night there will also be DJ sets from electro godfather Arthur Baker, bootleg pioneer and synthy grunge pop genius Richard X and, of course, the man himself Mark Jones, who will be threading it all together, linking the old school to the new school and heading into the phuture.
