Bestival boss recommends The Flaming Lips

Music lovers heading to the Isle of Wight for this weekend's Bestival event have been advised to check out the headline set by The Flaming Lips.

Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank stated that the US group - led by singer Wayne Coyne - are the "ultimate" band for festivals.

Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, he said: "Wayne will really have a ball with the fancy dress theme, 'Fantasy', rolling around in his giant hamster ball."

The festival's founder also recommended those heading on Isle of Wight holidays to attend Bestival - which gets underway on Thursday (September 9th 2010) - see The Correspondents, The Antlers and Dizzee Rascal, even though the latter is now a household name.

His final pick was The xx - who were announced as the winners of the Barclaycard Mercury Prize this week - who he said are "heartbreakingly beautiful live".

Other acts on the bill for the Robin Hill Country Park bash include The Prodigy, Fever Ray, Errors, Rolf Harris and Ellie Goulding.
