BBC Radio 6 Music and Bestival team up

The Big Top stage at Bestival has teamed up with BBC Radio 6 Music for this year’s festival, at Robin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight, 4-7 September.

The new partnership will see The Big Top Hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music stage debut, featuring the radio station’s DJs spinning the decks inbetween acts on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of the festival.

Some of the acts confirmed to play on the stage include Beck, Basement Jaxx, Bonobo, SBTRKT and DJ Yoda.

“BBC Radio 6 Music is really excited to be working with Bestival for the first time this year,” said BBC Radio 6 Music editor, James Stirling. “The fantastic line-up on The Big Top stage follows 6 Music’s ethos of mixing alternative-spirited established artists such as Beck and Basement Jaxx with emerging talent such as Temples and Cate Le Bon. Some of our presenting family will be there DJing, introducing some of the artists on stage and generally bringing the spirit of the festival alive for our audience.” 

Rob da Bank, Bestival’s organiser added: “I probably spend more time in The Big Top at Bestival than in any other space. The Main Stage has lots of huge and excellent acts on, but The Big Top is the intimate beating heart of Bestival and getting sweaty with 10,000 other Bestivalites to the most cutting edge indie, electronic and folk acts is always fun.”
