Diplo and Mark Ronson bringing ‘Silk City’ project to Bestival
Bestival has revealed that its Friday-night headliners will be Diplo and Mark Ronson, presenting the European debut of their brand-new Silk City project.
The festival celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2018, when it will take place in Dorset for the second year running after spending the rest of its 15-year history on the Isle of Wight. In honor of the anniversary, organizers are promising what they call “the most colourful show on Earth.”
For their headlining set, Diplo and Mark Ronson will make their European debut as Silk City — a joint musical project they unveiled at the start of 2018 and which will get its world debut this summer at the Governors Ball in New York City. Bestival is the only UK festival where they’ll bring Silk City during the upcoming festival season.
According to Bestival curator Rob da Bank, their Silk City set will feature “a new stage show packed with surprises back to back.”
Diplo and Mark Ronson join a line-up that already includes London Grammar, MIA, Grace Jones, Chaka Khan, Hot Chip and many more.
Tickets are already available for Bestival, which runs from August 2-5 on Lulworth Estate in Dorset.
