Sir Elton John is headlining Bestival 2013.
The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker will perform on Sunday September 8 during the final evening of the three-day festival on the Isle of Wight, and the singer can't wait to experience the annual fancy dress theme from the vantage point of the stage.
Elton said in a statement: ''I haven't played any of the major festivals in the UK in recent years, so when the opportunity to play Bestival came up I was very interested.
''I can't wait to see [the fancy dress] - they must all look amazing from the stage. At various times I wore enormous feathered head-dresses, cloaks, hot pants, jumpsuits, clown suits, a Minnie Mouse outfit, French Maid, the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.
''Wearing fancy dress makes us all feel less inhibited. So I think it's a great way to enjoy live music.''
Rapper Snoop Dogg will headline the Saturday night, where the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' chart-topper is expected to showcase his new reggae tunes as part of his reinvention as Snoop Lion.
A Friday headliner has yet to be announced for the festival, which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, but line-up highlights include Mia, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Roots, Belle & Sebastian, Jessie Ware, SquarePusher and the Polyphonic Spree.
Futher announcements will be made in coming weeks.
