Outkast to headline Bestival 2014


Story by Jack Foley

OUTKAST have been named as the first headliners of Bestival 2014.

Andre 3000 and Big Boi recently confirmed their comeback to mark their 20th anniversary and will be one of four acts topping the bill at the Isle of Wight event. They have also been confirmed to play London’s Wireless Festival.

Bestival takes place from September 4-7 at Robin Hill Country Park.

Commenting on the first announcement, organiser Rob da Bank said: “Hey ya! By the power invested in me as chief Bestival booker, I’m pretty darn excited to announce that Outkast are headlining Bestival this year!”

“We’ve fought hard to get the recently reunited legendary hip-hop duo onto the ferry… and it’s no ordinary ferry this year as Bestival goes Desert Island Disco for 2014… Palm trees, grass skirts and mirrorballs are the order of the day. It truly is gonna be the Bestival yet!”

Tickets for this year’s event are available from the Bestival website.
