Stevie Wonder will close Bestival tonight (September 9) with a headline performance on the Main Stage.

Sigur Ros, who released their sixth studio album 'Valtari' earlier this year, will play just before the soul legend on the Main Stage. Bat For Lashes, Friendly Fires, Spiritualized, Grimes and Palma Violets will also perform at Robin Hill Park today.

This year's festival has been blessed with scorching sunshine and this will continue through today with temperatures set to reach highs of 22c, but punters will be cool while they watch headliner Stevie Wonder in the evening as there is a chance of cloud later, according to BBC Weather.

Other artists set to play today's event include Grimes, Kate Nash, AlunaGeorge, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Rizzle Kicks, Orbital, StooShee, Friends, Miike Snow, Lucy Rose, Daughter, Toy, Gold Panda, Factory Floor and Chas & Dave.

New Order headlined the second day of the festival yesterday (September 7) where they dedicated their set to the late Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis.

Florence And The Machine played at the festival on Friday (September 7) where The XX unveiled their second album 'Coexist' during their first UK festival slot this year.

You can watch a video with Bestival boss Rob da Bank talking through the preparation for this year's bash below.
