Dizzee Rascal and LCD Soundsystem are playing this year's Bestival.

The acts join an eclectic line-up, including Australian singer and artist Rolf Harris, hotly tipped star Ellie Goulding and electro hitmakers Hot Chip.

The event, which this year takes place from September 9 to 12, is widely seen as being one of the last big summer festivals in the UK and attracts a large crowd.

Other acts playing at this year's Bestival include The Flaming Lips, Echo + The Bunnymen, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip, Marc Almond, Delphic and Simian Mobile Disco.

Dizzee Rascal has become a popular draw on the festival circuit, with Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis previously claiming that she wants him at her Somerset event.

She said: "We gotta have Dizzee. I think that's a given."

Bestival takes place at the Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight, and has previously attracted stars including Scissor Sisters, Lily Allen, Primal Scream and Amy Winehouse.

Tickets for the festival are now on sale.
