It’s Trident Media’s summer of love, music and festivals and our latest festival news comes from Bestival 2015!
The multi-award winning, four day festival in September, has announced its Sunday headlining act, the ‘First Lady of party-starting bangers;’ Missy Elliot!
Considered as one of the greatest artists of all time, and a true musical innovator, the team at Robin Hill, Isle of Wight, are ecstatic to see Missy Elliott perform her first UK show in nine years!
Commenting on her headline appearance, Missy Elliott said: “I’m very excited to be performing 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!”
Missy also added: “We are gonna have a blast together! Bring your dancing outfits and kicks!”
Bestival b-boy and co-founder, Rob da Bank, is also excited about Missy Elliott’s appearance and can’t wait to see her perform. He said: “Needing no introduction, Missy is the epitome of hip-hop royalty, the first lady of part-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!”
Hailing from Portsmouth (calm down everyone, not the one in England), in Virginia, Missy Elliott is one of music’s most successful MCs, songwriters, and producers. She is a one-woman hit machine, racking up five Grammy awards, one double platinum and four platinum albums, and over 166 VMAs, MOBOs and beyond.
Missy’s production innovation has had a huge impact on music globally, with her impressive discography, from The Rain (Supa Dupe Fly), Hot Boyz and Get Ur Freak On, to Work It, Pass The Dutch and Lose Control. Her recent performance at this year’s Super Bowl reminded the world of her influence and power and proved that her sound is just as vital now as it has ever been.
Joining Missy in the headliners for Bestival 2015 is Underworld, Duran Duran and the Chemical Brothers – a combination of mind-blowing artists, music legends and outstanding entertainers.
The line-up for this year will also see the likes of; Rudimental (DJ), Skrillex, Annie Mac, Mark Ronson, FKA Twigs, Boy Better Know, Lily Allen, and Ella Eyre, to name a few.
