Chase & Status and Annie Mac among DJs to play at Isle of Wight extravaganza
7:21pm Thursday 27th February 2014 in News
THE cream of British DJ talent will be jumping on board HMS Bestival this year as more acts have been announced.
Chase and Status will be showcasing the very best of their DJ skills on the final night of the music extravaganza, which this year has the theme Desert Island Disco.
They will be joined on the night by drum 'n' bass legend Andy C, who will present Ram, with firing sets from Wilkinson and Loadstar.
Other big name acts that will be making the trip over to the Isle of Wight in September, include BBC Radio One DJ Annie Mac, who will be heading up her very own massive party night.
Promoter Rob da Bank said: “A massive white ship cast adrift in a field, blasting out the finest electronic music on a crystal sound system; a man in a rowing boat rows through thin air whilst dangling from a crane; pyro and confetti fill the air; the ship's horn booms across 10,000 people's heads as they writhe in rhythm; and, as night falls, the lasers fire up and the ship appears to float above the grass.
“Yes, it sounds like an insane area, doesn't it? But last year we created The Port, possibly our coolest stage ever, and its back with another three days and nights of musical marvels from many of the world's finest DJs.
“Roughly speaking, Friday is techno night, Saturday is Miss Annie Mac's massive party night and Sunday starts chilled, but ends in junglist bass mayhem. All aboard.”
