Side stage announced for both events

The likes of Goldhawks, Errors and Egyptian Hip Hop are set to play a makeshift ‘tattoo parlour’ at this year’s Bestival (September 9-12) and The Bill Chill (August 5-8).

The bands are set to play the Sailor Jerry’s Ink City stage, which will resemble a 1930s shop in honour of Sailor Jerry Collins who was a tattoo artist.

“We never get tired of playing places that offer a place at the table for the little guy. Especially if there are costumes involved,” White Rabbits told NME of their slot at Bestival. “I love being surprised by somebody I’ve never heard of or had heard of but just haven’t had a chance to see.”

The line-ups for each festival is as follows.

The Big Chill
We Were Promised Jetpacks

Goldhawks
Racehorses
The Boy Who Trapped the Sun
