Bestival’s Desert Island Disco is welcoming even more exciting acts this year with the addition of eccentric Paloma Faith, club legends Basement Jaxx and disco queen Candi Stanton. In true Bestival fashion the latest additions released a few statements, which you can read below.
Paloma Faith said: “Bestival is the best festival because everyone gets dressed up and I will be too, dressing my band up… It’s so perfect that I should be invited to play at this festival this year because my new album, which is called A Perfect Contradiction, was all influenced by the history of soul music, particularly disco. So, I was listening to artists like Candi Staton, Prince, Chaka Khan, Gloria Gaynor, all of those types of artists, Parliament, Funkadelic, the lot… It is my favourite festival without a doubt, I’m so excited, see you there!”
Basement Jaxx’s Felix Buxton said “It was an honour and a pleasure to headline the very first Bestival – and we are very pleased to be back!”
Bestival’s Desert Island Disco will take place on 4th– 7th September at Robin Hill on The Isle of Wight. Paloma Faith, Basement Jaxx and Candi Stanton join the already amazing line up which includes OutKast, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers and Sven Vath.
