Bestival reveals Big Top Stage Acts, hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music

25 Mar 2014

LINE UP:
BONOBO / SBTRKT / DARKSIDE / TEMPLES / DJ YODA / DAN LE SAC VS SCROOBIUS PIP / PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT: UNKNOWN PLEASURES / CATE LE BON / NICK MULVEY / DENAI MOORE / PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING / RADIOPHONIC WORKSHOP / ADY SULIEMAN

For the first time, Bestival has teamed up with BBC Radio 6 Music to present The Big Top Hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with the cream of 6 Music’s presenter line-up DJing in between acts, bringing you the very best music round the clock.

Rob da Bank says: “I probably spend more time in The Big Top at Bestival than in any other space. The Main Stage has lots of huge and excellent acts on, but The Big Top is the intimate beating heart of Bestival and getting sweaty with 10,000 other Bestivalites to the most cutting edge indie, electronic and folk acts is always fun. I’m really pleased with the new additions from the incredible cinematic electronica of Nicolas Jaar’s Darkside project through to dance mania from SBTRKT, the hottest indie band in the UK, Temples, and old friends Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip and Peter Hook doing Joy Division. See you down the front…if you’re up for it!”

BBC Radio 6 Music Editor James Stirling said: “BBC Radio 6 Music is really excited to be working with Bestival for the first time this year. The fantastic line-up on The Big Top stage follows 6 Music’s ethos of mixing alternative-spirited established artists such as Beck and Basement Jaxx with emerging talent such as Temples and Cate Le Bon. Some of our presenting family will be there DJing, introducing some of the artists on stage and generally bringing the spirit of the festival alive for our audience”.

With a truck load of names still to announce, the Big Top Hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music is the distilled essence of Bestival’s legendary beyond eclectic philosophy and a stage you don’t want to miss.
