Bestival also have some super-exciting news of a very special cross-channel collaboration.

Helping Year of the Fantastic get off to stellar start Bestival are delighted to welcome the Isle of Wight's biggest band, Level 42, who will play a momentous 30th anniversary show opening the main stage at Bestival on Friday 10th September. There will also be appearances from rap sensation and Hackney's finest pop star Professor Green, high-octane ska-punks The King Blues, super-cool New York six-piece White Rabbits, sassy songstress Eliza Doolittle, soulful hip-hop from Nneka, a live set of slick rhymes from Giggs, the hotly tipped Villagers and a UK Festival exclusive live set from cocknbullkid. Plus there will also be live music from Joe Worricker, Kid Adrift, Visions of Trees, Dizraeli, Nately and Midnight Expresso.

Keeping you reaching for the lasers all night long will be a host of turntable terrorisers including drum n bass overlord High Contrast featuring MC Wrec, blissful dub specialists The Trojan Sound System, Ashley Beadle and Cosmo Murphy in their Darkstarr guise, the irrepressible Queens of Noise, Kill Em All kingpins Filthy Dukes, beatfreak Aldo Vanucci, the legendary Ross Allen and sets from BBC 6 Music new music champions Tom Robinson and Tom Ravenscroft. Also manning the decks throughout the weekend will be Reverend Milo Speedwagon, Coley, Crimes Against Pop, Daisy Heartbreaker, Flying White Dots, The Guru, Hip Hop Karaoke, In Light Of Aquarius, the Let's Go Crazy resident DJs Ben Davies, James Harwood and Twiggy Garcia, Johnno (Yacht Rock set), Rachel Furner, Handsome Dave Rocker & Gentle Bren, Moonboots, Ricky Redhead and the Union DJs.

Being the massive festival lovers that Bestival are at Bestival, Bestival are very proud to announce that Bestival have teamed up with France's finest, Rock en Seine, for a very special collaboration. Founded in 2003 and taking place in the magical and historic Domaine National de Saint-Cloud just outside Paris from 27-29 August, Rock en Seine has established itself as one of Europe's major summer festivals, playing host to the cream of the worldwide music scene and attracting 90,000 party goers from across the continent.

To strengthen cross-channel musical connections both festivals have teamed up to create an exclusive performance from a specially commissioned super-group made up of hotly tipped UK Electro-pop purveyors Ou Est Le Swimming Pool and the much admired Gallic hip-hop outfit Naïve New Beaters. Mixing up monster riffing with sublime synth action and the kind of beats that are guaranteed to move your feet, the bands will pitch in for a total of five tracks spread across each others sets, firstly at Rock En Seine on August 28th and then reprising the action at Bestival on September 10th. Destined to become part of festival folk lore on both sides of la manche, it's definitely one not to miss.
