The Invaders of the Future stage line-up for this year’s Bestival has been announced.
Set in the Magic Meadow, this stage promises to showcase all manner of undiscovered or under the radar talent, as chosen by the Bestiman himself, Rob da Bank.
Speaking about his passion for hidden musical gems, he said: “Yup, we all love a stonking big headliner at Bestival, and huge DJs and bands that have sold millions of records smashing it on our stages, but mostly where you’ll find me across the weekend at Bestival is in our Invaders stage checking out the new bands.”
“Once more we’ve gone mentally diverse from Radio 1 and SXSW darling’s Danny L Harle, Pup and Sunflower Bean through the amazing Eska and a takeover from the hottest label out there, PC Music, to local island talent Born Ina Barn and Xockha. See you down the front!”
Rob’s unrivaled nose for new talent promises good things springing up all weekend. From Hinds‘ girly psychedelic sounds, to The Wytches grungey guitar sneerings and Will Varley‘s witty words encased in a toffee rich Mumford-esque voice, the Invaders of the Future stage is sure to unleash some out of this world talent into orbit.
Bestival takes place from the 8th-11th September this year. Tickets are available to buy here, with student discount and payment plan available.
