1. Tame Impala 

Widely regarded as one the most innovative bands in 21st century music, Tame Impala are set to grace the Main Stage for this years Bestival. Having recently released their sensational third album Currents, Bestival 2015 offers revellers an opportunity to catch one of their first performances of the new album as well as the old classics. This could be one you tell your grandchildren about.

2. Action Bronson 

The man loves his food, and we love his music. Culinary connoisseur Action Bronson takes to the Bestival stage for the very first time and is expected to put on one of the most exciting hip hop sets of the summer. The least you could do is go to his show, he’s come all the way from Queens, NY.

3. Sleaford Mods 

No nonsense Nottingham lads Sleaford Mods are stepping out from under the perpetual midland’s overcast sky to give you their verdict on modern David Cameron’s broken Britain. Satire, rage, punk (!?) whatever you want to call it, this Nottingham duo will put on a show that will make you think about more than just music.

4. Eagulls 

This Leeds five-piece offer catchy punk tunes backed up by reverby goodness. Fans of The Clash, Joy Division and The Cure will appreciate these lads who have been around roughly six years. Currently recording their second album, the band will be keen to get out of the studio and tear up the stage with a raucous performance.

5. Jamie XX 

Britain’s electronic overlord Jamie XX will be bringing his beautifully unique brand of electronic music to fields of the Isle of Wight hot on the heels of the release of his latest album In Colour. Providing transcendental beats and atmosphere in abundance, you’d be a fool to sit this one out.
