Florence + The Machine will headline the opening night of this year's Bestival.
The band will play on the Friday night of the weekender (September 7). Festival organiser Rob da Bank revealed:
"Her shows for us at Bestival and Camp Bestival over the last few years have always been highlights for many and I'm glad we can finally seal the deal with a headline show on the Friday of Bestival and with The xx on before her this promises to go down in the Best of Bestival yearbook!"
Earlier this year, da Bank told NME magazine that quite a few of the users on the event's messageboards had already correctly guessed who the final headliner was. Regarding the third headliner, da Bank added: "The third headliner is done and dusted, but we're going to wait a while to announce them. There's quite a lot of people who've guessed right about who it is on our message boards, but I won't say anymore than that."
