On 30th March 2013, Bestival will be holiding a fundraising night to remember all those who lost in the tragic accident following last years Bestival and they’re incredibly pleased to announce an exciting line up of Liverpools finest and Bestivals best for Bestival at Nation 2013.
Taking the lead on the night will be Ian McCulloch with Ian Broudie, this pair are Liverpool legends who first found fame in the 80’s. Echo and the Bunnymen and The Lightning Seeds have countless chart hits behind them later becoming part of the fabric of rock n roll itself, the history of this pair stretches back to 1980 wiht the Bunnymens debut album – Crocodiles.
Here’s a few words from the Bestival organisers;
“It’s a real honour for us that they’ve agreed to take part in our fundraiser. We’ll also have the previously announced The Cuban Brothers dropping the party funk and b-boy moves in their own inimitable style, electronic trio Is Tropical, electro rockers Killaflaw and sets from the hotly tipped The Tea Street Band and future guitar duo Hoodie Ledbetter.
As anyone who has been to Bestival will know it’s not just about the music and we have some real treats lined-up for you including a spoken word set from the world’s most lauded trafficker of illicit substances, Howard Marks aka Mr. Nice. Plus we’ll have a rare screening of one of the best concert films from recent years, The Chemical Brothers: Don’t Think.
In the spiritual home of Cream we will of course have a corking DJ line-up that will include a very special guest synonymous with rocking the dancefloor in the past 20 years, with Bestival curator and Radio 1 leftfield behemoth Rob da Bank, a selection of Liverpool’s finest including Steve Parry, Chris McGee, Dave Whelan, Phil Fearon and James Silk plus Bestival’s own Little Chief.
The monies raised from the night will go to the immediate parents or guardians of festivalgoers Michael Molloy and Kerry Ogden who lost their lives in the accident and Zach Washington-Young who suffered life changing injuries.”
