Bjork revealed as final Bestival headliner

Icelandic singer will close the festival on the Isle Of Wight with a Sunday night set

Bjork has been revealed as the Sunday night headliner at this year’s Bestival.

She joins the festival’s previously announced main stage headliners, The Cure and Pendulum, and will play on the final day of the event (September 11), which takes place at Robin Hill Country Park, Isle Of Wight.

Other acts set to appear at the festival, which takes place September 8-11, include PJ Harvey, Brian Wilson, Primal Scream, Public Enemy, Kelis and Zola Jesus.

Bjork is currently performing her new album ‘Biophilia’ as part of the Manchester International Festival. She will play the Campfield Market Hall in the city on July 3, 7, 10, 13 and 16. The shows all start at 8.30pm (GMT) with the exception of the July 3 and 10 gigs, which begin at 4.30pm.

The singer, whose ‘Biophilia’ album – her seventh – comes out later in the summer, released the first single from the record, ‘Crystalline’, yesterday.

Bjork previously revealed that ‘Biophilia’ has been partly composed on an iPad and is set to be released in the form of a series of apps.
