Bestival organizers have been expanding this year’s lineup over the last several months, and now, they’ve announced a brand-new addition to the bill: Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim. He was one of the original headliners during the fest’s inaugural edition back in 2004, and he’ll make a return for the highly anticipated 10th anniversary bash.

“It was at Glastonbury 2003 where I closed the Sunday Best stage for Rob Da Bank and I first saw the glint in his eye to create his own festival,” said Cook in a recent interview with the Guardian. “Twelve months later I was headlining Bestival, and 10 years later here I am headlining the main stage alongside Elton John and Snoop Dogg. It’s an absolute honor to return to headline this momentous occasion – staying creative and independent in these times. You’ve come a long way, baby!”

Cook will join the likes of the Flaming Lips, Franz Ferdinand, M.I.A., Savages, James Blake, Willy Moon, the Knife, Belle and Sebastian, Wu-Tang Clan, Jessie Ware, Disclosure, the Walkmen, Musical Youth, Lissie, Parquet Courts and the Keepsakes, plus dozens more stellar acts.

Bestival 2013 runs from Sept. 5-8 on the Isle of Wight, just off the coast of Britain. Click here to pick up tickets.
