As the debate rages on over where the ladies are on this year’s festival line-up posters, Bestival have revealed the latest acts added to their bill and - yes, you’ve guessed it - they’re all female.
Charli XCX, Lianne La Havas and Ella Eyre are among the acts heading to the Isle Of Wight this September, along with B.Traits, Monki and Honeyblood.
The event’s organiser Rob da Bank has shared his excitement following the latest announcement, stating: “Well whaddya know? There are shedloads of amazing people making some startlingly good music at the moment… from pop to leftfield, soul to hip-hop and some ace DJs too, and look, lots of them are female! Whatever next?
“Joking aside, I'm really proud to announce the next wave of talent for Bestival - from pop starlets Charli XCX and Ella Eyre, to the legendary Neneh Cherry, and so many good new indie bands like Jagaara, Honeyblood and Girlpool.
“We're also raving away at Bestival HQ to the latest mixes from leading lights of the DJ scene, B Traits, Monki and Moxie. I cannot wait for September now - see you there!”
Adreya Triana, Soak, Lonelady and Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra are also on the line-up.
So far, just one of the events headliners, The Chemical Brothers, have been confirmed, and acts including Duran Duran, Tame Impala and DJ Annie Mac will also be taking to the stage, at the Summer Of Love-themed festival.
