Slim, aka Norman Cook, was one of the very first headliners at the inaugural Bestival in 2004.

"It was at Glastonbury 2003 where I closed the Sunday Best stage for Rob da Bank that I first saw the glint in his eye to create his own festival. 12 months later I was headlining Bestival and ten years on, here I am again, throwing them the biggest birthday bash possible and sharing the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg," he said in a statement.

"It’s an absolute honour to return for this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times. You've come a long way, baby!"

The big beat Brit Award-winning DJ will play an exclusive set, which he's dubbed 'Fatboy Slim's Bestival Birthday Bash', complete with mega-hits from 'Everybody Needs A 303' to 'Star 69 (What The F*ck)'.

Also taking to the stage at this year's festival will be MIA, Franz Ferdinand, Flaming Lips, The Knife, Wu-Tang Clan, Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox, Annie Mac Presents, and many more.
