The Kooks have revealed on their Twitter that they are to play the Big Top at Bestival this evening (September 6th).
This also follows a surprise set from one of London’s premium grime artists, Lethal Bizzle, last Friday night (September 5th) and the cancellation of Busta Rhymes performing.
Bestival’s HMS themed weekend this year is headlined by Nile Rogers’ Chic, Foals and Outkast who performed a career spanning set last night.
The Kooks release their new album Listen this Monday September 8th. The bands front man Luke Pritchard stated that the album includes more improvisation and found that “that kind of fearlessness when you make the first album kind of crept back in.”
The Kooks are playing the UK this autumn. Tickets are available from here.
