Yuck, Johnny Flynn and Santigold head new Bestival names

The organisers behind the Isle of Wight-based music festival Bestival have revealed a host of new acts have been added to the bill, including Yuck and Santigold.

Johnny Flynn, King Creosote and Jon Hopkins are also set to perform at the September event, as well as Alice Russell, The Secret Sisters, Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer and Young Rebel Set.

Bestival curator Rob da Bank explained that there is still one headline act to announce on the bill of the Robin Hill Country Park bash.

He added that Johnny Flynn, King Creosote and Jon Hopkins are among his favourite live acts at the moment.

A raft of DJs have also been added to the line-up, including Howard Marks with a dubstep set, Radio 1's Huw Stephens, Mary Anne Hobbs and Joy Orbison.

Bestival takes place from September 8th to 11th 2011 and is being headlined by The Cure, playing their only gig in Europe this year on the Isle of Wight.
