Missy Elliott announced as Bestival's Sunday headliner

Joining Underworld, Duran Duran and the Chemical Brothers to complete 2015s set of headliners, hip-hop legend Missy Elliot has been announced as the Sunday bill-topper for this year's Bestival.

Having not performed in the UK for more than nine years, Missy Elliot said, “I'm very excited to be performing at Bestival this year! I can't wait to see all my fans I haven't seen in some time… new ones and my day one fans! We are gonna have a blast together! Bring your dancing outfits and kicks!”

While festival head-honcho Rob Da Bank added, “So, putting the final pieces together for the world’s most intricate jigsaw puzzle that is Bestival, I’m mighty proud to announce our Sunday headliner Missy Elliott. Needing no introduction Missy is the epitome of hip-hop royalty, the first lady of party-starting club bangers and a downright legend. I cannot wait to watch the most successful female rap artist ever to Work It at Bestival 2015!”

Bestival is set to take place near Robin Hill on the Isle Of Wight from the 10th-13th September. Visit http://www.ticketline.co.uk/ for all your ticket options.
