The Prodigy will headline the final night of this summer's Bestival, it's been announced.

The band is the latest to be added to the line-up which also includes Dizzee Rascal, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah and the Audio Bullys.

Festival organiser, Radio 1's Rob da Bank, said: "Since raving as a young pup to Charly and Out of Space, The Prodigy have been a massive part of my record collection.

"As far as polishing off the party on Sunday night, I can't think of a more explosive finale on the Sunday night and after a busy tour it's going to be the last we'll see of them for a while."

Flaming Lips, Mylo, Gill Scott Heron and The Cuban Brothers are some of the 200 or so acts that have been confirmed to play the festival.

There will be 14 stages of live music which include DJ sets from Zane Lowe, Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs.

Bestival takes place from 9-12 September at Robin Hill Country Park on the Isle of Wight with tickets on sale through their website.
