Another act added to Bestival line-up

Another impressive act has been added to the line-up for the forthcoming Bestival event, which is likely to entice even more crowds to the Isle of Wight next month.

American artist Janelle Monae has become the latest act to announce she will take to the stage at the event held in Newport on September 9th.

The announcement came from Bestival organiser Rob da Bank on Twitter last Friday (August 13th), with the manager saying that he was "v chuffed" about the news.

He added that the performance will be the UK festival exclusive for the 25-year-old Grammy-nominee, who the organiser dubbed as a "total star".

Monae made a name for herself touring with No Doubt last year and will join the likes of The Progidy and Dizzee Rascal at the music gig next month.

Other acts confirmed include Cornershop, the Japanese Popstars, Hot Chip and The Temper Trap.

Australia's Rolf Harris will also make an appearance at the Isle of Wight festival.
