Festival organiser Rob da Bank 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!'

Now we're ready.'
Rob da Bank posted on the Bestival website yesterday (7th February 2012): 'So, here we are then! Announcing Bestival again - and another bumper selection of acts from across the musical world and styles. The xx at Bestival two years ago is in my top three Besti performances ever so I'm delighted they're hitting the main stage in 2012 and I've finally landed Sigur Ros, one of my all-time fave festival acts. From Justice to AZEALIA BANKS, Spiritualized to Sister Sledge, I hope there's something for everyone and still three headliners to unveil shortly!' For anyone that may have missed that announcement, he announced the acts, plus a few others, on his Twitter page earlier today (8th February 2012).
