First Aid Kit to play Bestival 2012

Ticketholders for Bestival on the Isle of Wight this summer could be set to take in a show by First Aid Kit during their time on the island.

The band are the second act to have been announced as being on the bill for the event, after Orbital were confirmed as headlining the Big Top on the final night of the festival.

Curator of Bestival Rob da Bank confirmed the news via his Twitter page, which has over 38,000 followers.

He will be revealing more bands that are on the bill of Bestival 2012 over the course of the next week or so as part of the build-up to the announcement of the headlining acts in the middle of the month.

The Radio 1 DJ added there is no "rhyme or reason" behind the order the groups are confirmed, explaining he just wants to bring some attention to non-headline bands on the line-up.

Earlier in the week, the curator revealed the theme for this year's Bestival is to be wildlife.
