Gypsy Punks Gogol Bordello have been confirmed as the headliners for the main stage of Friday night at the Isle Of Wight’s Bestival in September. On top of this, Guillemots will play the main stage on Saturday and Future Sound Of London presents the Atmosphous Androgynous have been confirmed for The Blue Pavilion.
Curator Rob Da Bank said:
“I’ve been chasing Gogol Bordello since Christmas to do Bestival and finally bribed and cajoled them to move recording commitments. We are really, really pleased they are headlining the Friday night. They’re easily the most exciting live band I’ve seen in 2006 and if you haven’t seen them yet you won’t be disappointed. Gypsy punk, Eastern European ska, New York bombastic breaks, weird haircuts and sexy ladies with washboards strapped to their backs!”
