The cure will be returning to the festival alongside Major Lazer and Hot Chip with a Sunday headliner still to be announced.

Animal Collective, Batille, Wolf Alice, Years and Years are just some of the other acts making the journey to the Isle of Wight.

Robert Smith and co famously headlined the festival five years ago, playing a huge three hour set organiser Rob Da Bank spoke of that famous set. “Saturday night headliners and one of my favourite bands ever, The Cure, played Bestival five years ago and almost had to be dragged off stage after a three-hour mammoth greatest hits set. Robert Smith popped down last year and we shook hands on it all happening again… bring it on!”

Bestival recently announced ‘The Future’ as the theme for the weekend, Robert Smith had his say on the theme. “We are very very happy to be back at our favourite festival; we can’t wait to play a special set to show the future IS what it used to be…”
