The Praise You DJ aka Norman Cook who headlined the first ever Bestival back in 2004 and will be bringing a very special set titled ‘Fatboy Slim’s Bestival Birthday Bash’ to the Robin Hill Country Park site on the Friday night.
Cook said: “It was at Glastonbury 2003 where I closed the Sunday Best stage for Rob Da Bank that I first saw the glint in his eye to create his own festival.
“12 months later I was headlining Bestival and TEN years on, here I am again, throwing them the biggest birthday bash possible and sharing the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg.”
He added: “It’s an absolute honour to return for this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times. You’ve come a long way, baby!"
Bestival curator Rob Da Bank said: “I still can’t believe Bestival is gonna be ten… but it is and that’s great ‘cos it means we get to go even more mental with our onsite creations and general madness.
“We wanted to have a big moment for all our amazing crew and the beautiful Bestivalites 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.
“Yes ladies and gents, boys and girls roll up roll up for what will be the biggest spectacle in UK festival land as we unveil Fatboy Slim’s Bestival Birthday Bash”.
Snoop Dogg and Sir Elton John will headline the Saturday and Sunday nights while other acts confirmed for this year’s festival include Rudimental, Franz Ferdinand, Jessie Ware, Disclosure, DJ Fresh, Bastille, M.I.A, Tom Odell, Chic Ft. Nile Rodgers, Angel Haze, The Knife and many more.
