Bestival unveil heavyweight line-up for Red Bull Music Academy stage



Bestival are delighted to announce that Red Bull Music Academy will be returning to Robin Hill once again with a new stage featuring a stunning altar dedicated to dance. Joining a throng of castaways cutting some rug from September 4th – 7th, Red Bull Music Academy has lined up some incredible daily hosts to take control of the stage.

A takeover by Glaswegian electronic music Mafiosi Numbers, who return to Bestival for the fourth time, kicks things off on Thursday, with Jackmaster & Oneman Present Can U Dance showcasing their four-deck manoeuvres, live sets from Redhino, and Kool Clap and Spencer going back to back with Optimo.

Friday sees Harvey’s Discotheque taking charge, channelling the same wide-grinned disco as his sell-out UK comeback gig with RBMA in 2012. Joining him are Daniel Avery, Pachanga Boys, Eric Duncan, Hugo CapablancaJolly Mare and Andre Laos. Whilst Saturday’s line-up comes packing some urban heat with JME, Skepta, Logan Sama, Preditah, C4, Slimzee, Riko Dan, Plastician, DJ EZ & Elijah and Skilliam go b2b for an alumni hat-trick.  Bringing the weekend to a close, Sunday sees Diplo & friends take the headline slot, with Kaytranada, Trippy Turtle, Artwork and Martelo.

Rob da Bank says: “Oh wow… Am I excited about this stage in 2014! I love working with Red Bull who have been at the majority of the last 11 Bestivals in some form or other musically. We definitely share a love of underground electronic music from all over the world and this year we’ve nailed our biggest line up yet. Jackmaster and his Numbers crew are simply the best party people around right now, the total legend that is Harvey used to DJ at my club Sunday Best 15 years ago and is still the man for awe inspiring leftfield DJ sets for disco heads, Tropical is where its at right now as grime, house and bass collide in a sunshine vibe and Diplo comes straight from the main stage with his Major Lazer crew to mash up the grand finale. Seriously this is gonna be a lock out from Thursday to Monday! Check it!”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
