Stevie Wonder to headline Bestival

Stevie Wonder to headline Bestival

Bestival organisers have signed, sealed and delivered soul legend Stevie Wonder as one of their headline acts.

The chart-topping star, who scored his first UK hit in 1966, will appear at the Isle of Wight festival on Sunday September 9.

Bestival organiser and DJ Rob da Bank said: "A winner of 25 Grammy Awards, the most ever for a solo artist, this man's music has always been part of the da Bank home listening experience and also a favourite at our Sunday Best and Bestival parties, and this is a very rare chance to see a legend in action."

Other acts already announced to play the annual festival include New Order, The xx and Rizzle Kicks.

Wonder, who became blind shortly after he was born, started his career with Motown Records as an 11-year-old and released a string of critically-acclaimed albums in the 1970s which saw him pioneer the use of synthesisers.

He played Glastonbury in 2010 and ended the festival by leading the crowd in a massed rendition of Happy Birthday - which he wrote in 1981 as part of his campaign to have Martin Luther King's birthday recognised as a public holiday in the United States.
