Isle of Wight's Bestival Acts Announced

Electro-pop veterans New Order have been announced as the latest headliners for this year's Bestival music event.

The 1980s band, famous for Blue Monday, will play the Saturday night headliner slot at the event run by Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank on the Isle of Wight in September.

Original bassist Peter Hook will not be performing with New Order, who reformed last year.

Other acts added to the line-up include Friendly Fires, Death In Vegas, Daughter, Drums Of Death, Zulu Winter and Django Django.

Icelandic chill-rockers Sigur Ros have already been announced as a UK festival exclusive along with The xx, Two Door Cinema Club, Justice, Orbital, Hot Chip, 2manydjs and De La Soul.

Rob da Bank said: "So I've got Blue Monday blaring out of the Bestival HQ office speakers as we unveil our iconic Saturday night headliner New Order.

"It doesn't get better than that, but it does, True Faith, Bizarre Love Triangle, Fine Time, Regret, so many amazing records that I grew up listening to (and still listen to now) and they still sound immense, pioneering, legendary. See you down the front."

Bestival takes place at Robin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight, from September 6 to 9.
