Jewish rap trio The Beastie Boys will be the main attraction at this summer’s Bestival music weekend on the Isle Of Wight.
The festival, which takes place from September 7-9, will mark the New Yorkers’ only live performance in the UK this year. They will also play a string of dates across Europe, visiting Portugal, Germany, France, Belgium and Poland.
The band will also release a new album later this year, their first since 2004’s chart-topping To The Five Boroughs.
Band member Adam Yauch, aka MCA, told US magazine Billboard, “Hopefully that’ll be out this summer.”
