Finalists chosen for Bestival competition

The list of finalists in a competition to win a place performing at Isle of Wight-based event Bestival has been announced.

DJs and bands will battle for a spot on the bill at the event, which takes place in September at Robin Hill Country Park.

A live final will be held at Newport Football Club in St George's Park on Thursday (July 1st 2010) to decide which act should play the four-day bash, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Sam Franklin, themartinieffect, Maxx Traxx and Reaperez will compete for the DJ prize, while Lycanthropy, The Dead Perrys, KHOTEH, One Stone and Airplane Pilots go toe-to-toe in the bands section of Plugged In Bestival.

All of the chosen acts have been hand-picked by Radio 1 DJ and Bestival curator Rob da Bank.

The winning musicians will be added to the Bestival line-up, which features headliners The Flaming Lips, Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip and The Prodigy, as well as new bands such as The xx, Delphic, Everything Everything and Silver Columns.
