Bestival reveals Back to the Phuture line-up

Back to the Phuture is going to take place at Isle of Wight-based event Bestival again this year, the organisers of the festival have announced.

It will be the third year in a row the show, which has been described as the ideal way to open the bash, has taken place at Robin Hill Country Park.

Hot Chip will be heading the bill for the evening's entertainment, with support from the likes of 80s pop icon Gary Numan, hotly-tipped group Alabama Shakes and Killaflaw.

The 2 Bears, Adamski and Back to the Phuture's own Mark Jones are going to be the DJs taking to the stage on the night to spin some tunes for those who arrive at Bestival on the Isle of Wight early.

"It's great to be back at Bestival for a third year with Back to the Phuture and a truly amazing line up of inspiring artists. Tomorrow is Today…… Today is Tomorrow….. Bring the Noize," said Jones.

A wide range of acts have also been added to the bill of the Isle of Wight-based festival, which is set to run from September 6th to 9th this year and is headlined by Sigur Ros and New Order.

Skepta, Jessie Ware, Murkage, Jake Bugg, The Other Tribe, Parma Violets, Crowns, Daytona Lights and Alonestar, as well as Isle of Wight groups This Way Up and A Way Of Life.

Gilles Peterson has been confirmed as heading to the island this summer to play some tracks at Bestival, while Shy FX and Redlight are among the other big names from the world of dance music who are going to be performing.

Stevie Wonder is going to be one of the biggest draws for music fans travelling to the Isle of Wight to attend Bestival this year, with other acts taking to the stage over the course of the weekend including Two Door Cinema Club, The xx, Soulwax, Justice and Emeli Sande.
