THREE more brilliant acts will be bringing their dancing shoes to Bestival’s Desert Island Disco in September.

Paloma Faith will be in the Big Top to close this year’s festival with tracks from her back catalogue and brand new album A Perfect Contradiction.

Basement Jaxx, headliners at the very first Bestival, return with a truckload of tunes and, one of the legends of gospel, disco and dance music, Candi Staton will also grace the stage with Young Hearts Run Free, Stand By Your Man and You Got The Love.

The new trio will join headliners Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, OutKast, Foals and Beck.

Rob da Bank told Your Entertainment: “Desert Island Disco seems to have lit up everyone’s imaginations with its mirror ball and palm tree vibes going down really well. So we thought we’d add some disco divas and pure upfront house legends to the bill!”

Paloma Faith added: “Bestival is the best festival because everyone gets dressed up and I will be too, dressing my band up. My newalbumis influenced by the history of soul music, particularly disco.”

Bestival 2014 takes place at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight from September 4 to 7.
