Story by Jack Foley

STEVIE Wonder has been confirmed as the headline act for Bestival 2012 on the Sunday night.

The event, which takes place at Robin Hill Country Park, on the Isle Of Wight, from September 6 to 9, 2012, has already announced New Order as the headline act for Saturday night.

But organiser Rob da Bank is thrilled to have enticed Stevie Wonder to the line-up.

He said: “What can I say? What a day! I see part of my job at Bestival as giving you acts you may never have seen or will get the chance to see again… so, I’m hoping you feel as happy as I do as we announce the legendary Stevie Wonder as Sunday night headliner!

“A winner of 25 Grammy Awards, the most ever for a solo artist, this man’s music has always been part of the da Bank home listening experience and also a favourite at our Sunday Best and Bestival parties and this is a very rare chance to see a legend in action. See you there!”

With over 20 stages of live music from more than 300 bands Bestival is the fans’ favourite festival, with a wealth of hidden treasures peppered across the site.

From the old world southern American charms of the Swamp Shack and the magical aura of the Wishing Tree, to the mayhem of the Wall of Death and the rush of the Roller Disco it’s a non-stop party paradise and the greatest show on earth!

And organisers have still to announce the Friday night headliner as well!
