Bestival, this year headlined by The Cure, Major Lazer and Hot Chip, has announce a bunch of bands for its Invaders of the Future Stage and there’s more than one Upset favourite among the list.
Former Upset Cover Stars Milk Teeth will continue their summer of fun with an appearance at the Isle Of Wight bash alongside Black Honey, Fatherson, Hinds and Vant. Creeper will be taking their South Coast Misery across The Solent alongside Moose Blood who’ll hopefully be showing off that anticipated second album. One band who will definitely be showing off new material is PUP, who are also Bestival bound alongside Pinegrove, Spring King and Pretty Vicious. Like we said, it’s pretty stacked.
Head-honcho Rob da Bank explains, “Yup, we all love a stonking big headliner at Bestival, and huge DJs and bands that have sold millions of records smashing it on our stages, but mostly where you’ll find me across the weekend at Bestival is in our Invaders stage checking out the new bands. Once more we’ve gone mentally diverse from Radio 1 and SXSW darling’s Danny L Harle, Pup and Sunflower Bean through the amazing Eska and a takeover from the hottest label out there, PC Music, to local island talent Born Ina Barn and Xockha. See you down the front!”
