Duran Duran, The Chemical Brothers, Tame Impala, Jungle for Bestival 2015

The Chemical Brothers have been confirmed to headline this summer's Bestival, with Duran Duran, Jungle, Tame Impala, Future Islands and Little Dragon are among the first additions to the line-up. 

The festival will take place from September 10th to September 13th at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle Of Wight, with the Chemical Brothers headlining the festival's Saturday night. 

Among the other acts confirmed are Underworld, The Jacksons, Gorgon City, Duke Dumont and Boy Better Know. You can see the full line-up below. 

Speaking about the announcement, organiser Rob Da Bank: "We're taking it right back to our roots for the 12th annual Bestival. It’s also the 20th birthday of the club where it all started - Sunday Best, and that club and our beloved Bestival were founded on some pretty simple aims - listen to amazing music, make new friends, have fun, and maybe stay up all night."

He continued: "Two decades later we're rigidly sticking to those principles, and this edition of Bestival, with its Summer of Love theme, is all about one huge musical, well, orgy... So, returning friends the Chemical Brothers rave alongside iconic popstars Duran Duran and The Jacksons, and some of my favourite modern musical mavericks - Tame Impala, Flying Lotus and Jungle - jump in bed together… and this is just the start of the party… Watch this space and feel the love!"
