It has been revealed today that The Prodigy are to headline Bestival.

Joining Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip, Roxy Music and Flaming Lips, the Essex band will headline the Sunday night at the Isle of Wight based event.

Festival organiser Rob da Bank has said of the news: "So, we can finally unveil our Sunday night headliner as Braintree's finest, The Prodigy! 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. 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 so get in the queue now!"

Bestival takes place at Tobin Hill Country Park, Isle of Wight from September 9 -12. Tickets are now available for the event.
