Bestival Announce Final Headliner
Bestival organiser Rob da Bank have announced the final headliner for this year’s festival. Quite surprisingly they have announced it in a Reading & Leeds-style way with a double headliner – Wiz Khalifa and Sean Paul.
In a move no one could have predicted, the rapper and Hair singer will be taking to the Isle Of Wight stage this September when Bestival returns to Robin Hill Country Park. And, it looks like it could be amazing with a massive sound-clash between the two set to rock the Sunday night closing slot.
‘I can’t wait to play at Bestival,’ Sean Paul said in an official statement. ‘I’ve heard the grand finale on the Sunday night is the best festival spot in the UK and I’m gonna bring the fyyyaahhh.’
‘We love a big finale at Bestival,’ Rob da Bank, the festival’s founder, said. ‘We also love hip-hop and dancehall. A massive soundsystem superclash between Wiz Khalifa and Sean Paul seems like a solid plan to close off another big weekend of music, of raving, partying and expanding your minds at Bestival.’
It’s received a bit of a mixed reaction from festi-goers, though, with some calling it the worst headliner announcement in history, while others offering to ‘give my right arm’ to go to Bestival this year.
We will have to wait and see what the two acts are like come this year’s festival.
