For its 2016 edition, Bestival has finally announced its theme: The Future. While their announcement video takes cues from the gritty synths of the 80’s, we’re certainly going to get caught inside the bass monsoons of modern production.
Playing effortlessly into the year’s theme, Major Lazer, Hot Chip, and The Cure have been announced as headliners for the first wave lineup. However, no future themed event would be complete without the avant garde reaches of Animal Collective, and the accompanying house of Eats Everything, Danny Byrd, Richie Hawtin, TS5, and Skream.
Bestival Curator Rob de Bank said the following about the event earlier today:
“Prepare yourselves for a Bestival unlike any other with futuristic new stages, and as ever it’s a broad church of music from every decade and every genre.”
Bestival will take place from September 8th to the 11th, and you can find more information on their website. Trust us, you’re not going to want to miss this one.
