Bestival have truly outdone themselves for 2016, by announcing not one, but two headliners for the Sunday night of this year’s event.

Wiz Khalifa and Sean Paul will be taking to the stage on the final evening of the Robin Hill extravaganza and quite frankly, we can’t wait.

Luckily, neither can they, and Wiz has shared his excitement, stating: “Can’t wait to be back in the UK and perform at Bestival. The fans here have such good energy, it’s going to be lit.”

Sean Paul adds: “I can't wait to play at Bestival... I’ve heard the grand finale on the Sunday night is the best festival spot in the UK and I'm gonna bring the fyyyaahhh."

The booking is yet another UK festival exclusive for Bestival, who booked Missy Elliott for her only UK performance last year, and the duo join previously announced headliners Major Lazer, The Cure and Hot Chip.

The Sunday night will finish off with a Purple Rave, in place of the usual firework extravaganza, as Rob da Bank and team pay tribute to Prince.

Across the weekend, plenty of other big names will perform at the Isle of Wight event, including Skepta, Years & Years, The Human League and Wolf Alice.
