Festival curator and DJ Rob da Bank made the announcement saying, "Ahoy there shipmates and welcome to my desert island! Yes folks, HMS Bestival has set sail once more and we have finally landed back on the Isle of Wight for our 11th instalment - a Desert Island Disco. Foals were voted best live act of last year and I'm delighted they'll be headlining the Saturday night – there’s no better indie guitar band in the UK right now.

Also donning a grass skirt and mirrorball is a total icon of popular music and one of my favourite songwriters, Beck” He went on to add,“so get out of your deckchair and get ready to disco, my friends!"

The annual festival takes place on the isle of Wright and runs from the 4-7th of September. Also joining the line up are Laura Mvula, Sam Smith, Wild Beasts, London Grammar and current chart-toppers Clean Bandits. They’ll join previously announced acts Disclosure and Major Lazer. Fans have already taken to Twitter to express their delight at this years line-up, the fancy dress theme for which is the tropical, ‘Desert Island Disco.’

Last month Outkast delighted fans when they announced they would reunite for 40 festivals to commemorate their twenty year anniversary. The duo first announced they would be making their live comeback by headlining Coachella Festival in April.
