The Bestival Festival takes place on the Isle Of Wight and this years looks set to be one of their biggest and best yet.

A diverse roster of names have been announced which includes such artists as Kraftwerk, Massive Attack, Fleet Foxes, Bat For Lashes and Passion Pit and that's literally just naming a few.

There's a few duds hidden away in the line-up (Goldie Lookin' Chain are still going?) but aside from those, the event looks pretty promising and it's always fun to see how effective their "fancy dress" dress code turns out. This year has a Space Theme so expect some inter-planetary silliness through the three day event.

Bestival runs through the weekend starting September 11th (Friday) until September 13th (Sunday). You can check below for the full line-up announced so far.
