Also just announced for the Isle of Wight festival are Bob Marley's former backing band the Wailers, Cumbria's Wild Beasts and pop veteran Howard Jones. Sting's daughter, who performs as I Blame Coco, is set to perform, while a DJ set is promised from La Roux and Dead Guy.
Festival organiser Rob Da Bank predicted that this would be the Prodigy's last UK appearance for some time. "Since raving as a young pup to 'Charly' and 'Out of Space' through to caning their new record on my radio show, the Prodigy have been a massive part of my record collection," he said. "As far as polishing off the party on Sunday night I can't think of a more explosive finale and it's gonna be the last we'll see of them for quite a while on our shores."
The Essex ravers closed an Australian tour on Thursday night (March 11), then next month head out on a European jaunt before returning to the UK to play the V and T in the Park festivals along with a show at Milton Keynes Bowl.
Bestival takes place at Robin Hill Country Park, from Sept. 9-12. Its packed line up boasts Flaming Lips, Hot Chip, Dizzee Rascal, Roxy Music and Gil Scott-Heron, with exclusive sets from the XX and Fever Ray.
