Last year DJ SNAKE authored two of the biggest dance tracks: his own 'Turn Down for What' and Major Lazer's 'Lean on'. 2015 was also the year that he shook the Boiler Room to its very foundations. This time he’s armed with a new album and determined to top last year’s performance.

Here’s another string of new names that will light up the dance floor: DJ CRAZE, DUSKY LIVE, THE JILLIONAIRE, JUST BLAZE, TROYBOI and SNAKEHIPS. Now here’s a blast from the past: American pop punk heroes GOOD CHARLOTTE! And last but not least loads of fresh names including CATFISH AND THE BOTTLEMEN, GLASS ANIMALS, JOSEF SALVAT NAO, RY X and SWINDLE.

Following Oscar and the Wolf, Soulwax and The Subs organisers are proud to present yet another batch of homegrown talent: AMONGSTER, CHARLOTTE DE WITTE, COELY, COMPACT DISK DUMMIES, TSAR B, WARHAUS, WARHOLA and WOODIE SMALLS are all joining us for Pukkelpop 2016.

On the downside, WAKARAT have been forced to cancel their upcoming European tour and that includes their appearance at Pukkelpop.


The line-up just keeps getting better and better! Organisers are thrilled to announce that BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner, TOM ODELL will be performing at V Festival. The British indie pop singer-songwriter, whose new album will be released in June, is currently in the midst of a sold-out tour. V Festival will be one of the only places you can get your hands on a ticket to see Tom play his new material, following the major success of his debut album ‘Long Way Down’.

After having announced musical delights such as Radiohead, who have just confirmed the release of a brand-new album this June, US sensation Kings of Leon and 30 more acts, we'll complete our 2016 lineup.

Festival organisers are thrilled to confirm that ultra-vivid violinist and singer LINDSEY STIRLING will grace the stage with one of her gripping performances. The Australian boys of THE TEMPER TRAP will conquer the stage for their only Germany show with full-on indie rock.

The insatiable ROISIN MURPHY will venture to Treptower Park with her new album Take Her Up To Monto, and TOCOTRONIC, who put German indie rock on the map in the mid-1990s, will also conquer the Lolla stage.

Shaping the destiny of dance music, our very own rave oasis, Temple Island, has lined-up the heavy hitters to take Bestival into The Future this September in the depths of Robin Hill. Curated in conjunction with Street Team and spanning all flavours of beat behaviour from hip-hop to jungle and almost everything in between, expect a jam-packed weekend of floor spanking brilliance from legendary selectors and the most exciting new DJs with non-stop songs of praise in our church of dance.

Bestival’s own dancefloor destroyer Rob da Bank says:

              However hard I try to stay away from the brain-melting mega-rave zone that is Temple Island at Bestival the more I seem to get dragged into the madness. With its unique stepped dancefloor and open air Ibiza vibe it really is one of our best venues at Bestival. Last year it seemed to be a lock out from lunchtime till the wee hours, and this year will be no different with so many amazing names and legends from Goldie and Annie Nightingale to new bloods My Nu Leng and Oneman… oh yeah and I appear to be playing a history of jungle with Aled Jones MCing over the top!
