Outkast to headline disco Bestival

Outkast have been named as the first headliner for this year's "party" festival Bestival.

The last of the main music events of the summer has also announced that its fancy dress theme for this year will be desert island disco.

The event, run by Radio 1 DJ Rob da Bank and which is in its 11th year, is held at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight from September 4 to 7.

Da Bank said; "Hey ya! By the power invested in me as chief Bestival booker, I'm pretty darn excited to announce that Outkast are headlining Bestival this year!

"We've fought hard to get the recently reunited legendary hip-hop duo on to the ferry... And it's no ordinary ferry this year as Bestival goes Desert Island Disco for 2014. Palm trees, grass skirts and mirrorballs are the order of the day. It truly is gonna be the Bestival yet."

Outkast, which is made up of rappers Andre 3000 and Big Boi, are famous for hits including Hey Ya!, Ms Jackson.
