The xx, Sigur Ros, Azealia Banks and Two Door Cinema Club are among the latest to be added to the bill at this year’s Bestival.
Bestival curator Rob Da Bank announced on Twitter that the eclectic festival will also include 80s electro pioneer Gary Numan, this year’s BBC sound of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka, 70s disco stars Earth, Wind and Fire, and Lianne La Havas.
They join acts such as First Aid Kit and dance pioneers Orbital, who have already been confirmed for the festival season-closing event.
A few days ago Rob da Bank said: "I’ve never been pestered so much on Twitter and even in clubs and on the street about who’s playing Bestival this year so we thought we'd better start the proceedings."
Bestival's theme has already been announed as Wildlife.
"We want you to unleash the party beast from the hinterlands of your imagination, covering Robin Hill with some properly wild things, from fantastic fauna, kings of the jungle and even organisms aplenty to just the outrageously wild... The sky is far from the limit of what can happen when you get amongst the wildlife….And we will also be launching our very own Insect Museum and Animal Tug of War," said a statement on the festival's website.
A full line up is expected to be posted on Bestival’s website later today.
