We’re very excited about the news that dropped this week about one of the seminal stages at this year’s Bestival, in the Isle of Wight.
Temple Island curator and director of The Physical Network, Liam Negus-Fancey says: “This is Temple Island’s third year at Bestival, and this year we’ll be back where we were in 2014, continuing to build on the massive success of the stage. As always our line-up is focused on what the ambassadors want. And this year, Robby and I, and all of Bestival’s ambassadors will be selecting an up-and-coming DJ to join our amazing line-up. So please sign up for this once in a lifetime chance”
Temple Island’s headline accts are set to include Madlib, Philip George, B.Traits and Hudson Mohawke, whose forthcoming album “Lantern” is eagerly anticipated and due for release this year. Other notable highlights will be comedy pirate radio outfit Korrupt Fm aka People Just Do Nothing. Their work with True Tiger’s Stanza and the incredible DJ Barely Legal has helped bring garage sounds back from behind that grotty 90’s sofa and to the forefront of British Festival culture again. Bravo.
“We’re giving one up-and-coming DJ the chance to play on one of Bestival’s busiest stages with our momentous Temple Island DJ Competition! All you need to do to win a coveted slot on the stage is upload your finest floor-filling DJ mix (no more than 30 mins) to your SoundCloud/Mixcloud/YouTube channel and submit the link along with your name, age and location at http://bit.ly/BTIDJcomp.
Bestival curator Rob da Bank and The Physical Network’s Liam Negus-Fancey will select their favourite 10 mixes, and then our Bestival Ambassadors will vote for the winning mix! Don’t miss it.”
