The first night of Bestival 2013 will be closed by Fatboy Slim, it has been announced.
The superstar DJ is booked to top the Isle Of Wight event on Friday, September 5th and joins fellow headliners Snoop Dogg and Elton John, with the likes of Johnny Marr, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, Peace, Bombay Bicycle Club and Tom Odell also booked to perform.
“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,” Norman Cook has remarked.
“12 months later I was headlining Bestival and 10 years on, here I am again, throwing them the biggest birthday bash possible and sharing the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg. It’s an absolute honour to return for this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times.”
“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,” organiser Rob Da Bank adds.
“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.”
