London Grammar told NME that they have some ‘special’ plans in store for their Bestival headline slot.

“We do have some shows this year,” said singer Hannah Reid. “We’ve got like nine gigs, and the show might hopefully be a bit different from the one we’ve been touring with this year so there will be some exciting stuff but it will be a bit more chill.”

“We love that festival. Dot’s been many time’s as a punter, we played there a bunch of times a few years ago so for us it needs to be special. We’ll make sure that it is, but I won’t give anything away about it.”
