Bestival Unveils the First Acts to Feel the Love (Duran Duran included!)

February 12th, 2015

First Announce - Social - b15 no j5

TICKETS ON SALE THURSDAY 12TH FEBRUARY 10:00AM

We’ve always been lovers, not fighters, everyone knows that. So, now that Bestival’s Summer of Love theme is out in the open and our amorous adventures are well and truly underway, we’re more than a little excited to turn our attentions to our first line-up announcement! Featuring our mighty Thursday Big Top headliners and our Saturday main stage headliners, and a litany of party people spreading their love across more than 25 stages in 8 fields of wonderment with mega soundsystems, non-stop parties and 24-hour escapism, this is just the beginning, so don’t miss out; feel the love this September 10th-13th at Robin Hill on the Isle of Wight.

Joining our line-up for the first time for a UK festival exclusive appearance are iconic trailblazers Duran Duran. Unstoppable as ever, the band are currently in the studio with Mr. Hudson, Mark Ronson and Nile Rodgers, putting the finishing touches on a brand new album, set for release later this year. Frontman Simon Le Bon says: “This year sees the beginning of a new Duran Duran live show. I couldn’t imagine starting it with more of a bang than an appearance at Bestival.”

Duran Duran’s Bestival performance will be on Saturday, September 12.

Since we’ve got a bit of a hippie vibe going on this year, bringing back the peace and love, it seems like the perfect time to announce that Bestival has become a member of pioneering project Energy Revolution, a festival charity (pending incorporation) that crowdsources donations and invests in clean energy to tackle climate change and create a sustainable future for everyone. Audience travel makes up around 70% of a festival’s carbon footprint. Together we can account for millions of miles of travel, and turn a problem into a solution – renewable energy is the best chance we have to reduce global emissions to safe levels. So when you book your car park, caravan or camper tickets there will be an option to add a £3 donation to Energy Revolution. We’re doing our bit by using renewables where possible, so if you could help too, we could make a real difference!

Tickets for Bestival’s Summer of Love go on sale at 10am on Thursday 12th February, and more announcements are coming very soon.
