"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!" he said in a statement, "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!"

OutKast - featuring Big Boi and Andre 3000 - will celebrate their 20th anniversary with several festival appearances, including the two weekends of Coachella and at New York's Governors Ball in June. Interestingly, the group's schedule still appears open for Glastonbury.

Arcade Fire are the only major artist confirmed for Michael Eavis' festival, though Dolly Parton and Kasabian remain strong rumors. There is speculation that Metallica, Prince, Elbow and Pixies may also appear.
