The Cure are set to headline Bestival 2011 and the band have confirmed it will be their only European show of 2011.

Also, booked to play the festival are Primal Scream present Screamadelica, Brian Wilson ,
Magnetic Man, Robyn, Crystal Castles and Dj Shadow.

Rob da Bank said of booking The Cure: ‘I’ve spent the last twenty years of my life listening to The Cure and the last five attempting to persuade Robert Smith and the crew to hop on a ferry to our magical Isle. I’m still not sure what we’ve done right but I’m overjoyed that they are coming as Saturday night headliners. Few bands have had such a massive impact on my life (and hairstyles) so I’ll see you down the front!’

Cure frontman Robert Smith also commented: “I am delighted and excited that The Cure’s only European festival performance in 2011 will be at Bestival? We will do all we can to help make it a weekender to remember!”

Bestival 2011 takes place in September on the Isle of Wight and tickets are on sale now.
