The ‘Red Bull Music Academy Stage’ is the newest addition to this year’s Bestival Line-up. A brand new stage for the 2014 festival in association with Red Bull will be bringing a huge range of dance and electro to the already diverse mix.

Bestival founder Rob da Bank said today: “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!”

Four days of DJ’s, disco and dance make for an exciting addition to the weekend. Thursday see’s a Numbers session with Jackmaster at the helm, Friday is Disco DJ Legend DJ Harvey hosting his very own Discotheque, Saturday gives us a glimpse into the grime scene with JME and Skepta and closing the stage on sunday is Diplo, finishing the weekend off on a high.

Tickets are still available for the festival now, which is set in Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle Of Wight. With other huge headliners such as Chic & Nile Rogers, Disclosure, Foals and Chase & Status, the ‘desert island-disco’ (D-I-S-C-O) theme is sure to go down a smash!
