With Jess Glynne and Fatboy Slim already announced as Friday and Saturday night headliners respectively for next year's Camp Bestival, event organisers have now revealed that on the Sunday night, Tears For Fears will be taking to the main stage.

Tears For Fears

The group said about their upcoming first UK festival appearance in 26 years: "We are so looking forward to playing our first UK festival since our last one in 1990 at Knebworth. I know we're not the most prolific artists but we believe in quality over quantity. We're looking forward to performing new & old songs as we will have finished our new album before we perform. The fact that it's in the West Country where we began our journey makes it all the more gratifying. We look forward to seeing you at Camp Bestival."

Rob da Bank adds: "'Songs from the Big Chair' was, and still is, one of my most treasured albums, and one which appears totally timeless. I still can't figure out what most of the lyrics mean, but when the music and vocals are so strong it doesn't matter. We took our kids on holiday last year and only had two CDs in the car, one of them was this and they cannot get enough of it, too… so, I know after five years of trying, Tears for Fears are going to be something very special at Camp Bestival for all ages."

Tickets to the event - taking place at Lulworth Castle in Dorset from July 28-31 - are still available from Ticketline, or by ringing 0844 888 4410.
