Richie Hawtin will perform in the Big Top at the massive British festival.
The seminal techno producer will perform in the Big Top, one of Bestival's main stage areas. He will add to an already impressive lineup of electronic performers, including the likes of Dixon, Flying Lotus, Seth Troxler, and Ewan Pearson, plus dozens of top tier rock and pop acts.
The appearance will mark one of only two British dates in the first ever Plastikman world tour, which begins this March at the Time Warp festival in Mannheim. Following in the same vein as his 2004 Mutek performance, Plastikman's live act will comprise roughly sixty minutes of classic material from albums like Artifakts, Sheet One and Musik, all remixed on the fly with provocative visual accompaniment by Ali Demirel, Hawtin's longtime collaborator and director of Making Contakt, the documentary of M-nus's 2008 tour.
Other recent additions to Bestival's lineup include South London indie-rockers The XX and the all-mighty Fever Ray, whose eerie live performances in London and New York earned glowing reviews here at RA.
