The Cure will headline Bestival 2016 on September 10th. Tickets are on sale now.
"Saturday night headliners and one of my favourite bands ever, The Cure, played Bestival five years ago and almost had to be dragged off stage after a three-hour mammoth greatest hits set. Robert Smith popped down last year and we shook hands on it all happening again… bring it on!
The Cure's Robert Smith said: "We are very very happy to be back at our favourite festival; we can't wait to play a special set to show the future IS what it used to be…"
One of Bestival HQs favourites and, frankly, one of the greatest bands of all time, The Cure will headline Saturday night when Bestival heads to The Future. From Three Imaginary Boys in 1979 to their most recent album 4:13 Dream, they've forged their own path, dragging everyone else in their wake. Covering the gamut of emotions that take in the heady pop of Boys Don't Cry and Inbetween Days, the heartbreak of Pictures of You and Bloodflowers, the ferociousness of Give Me It and Fascination Street and the dreaminess of Underneath the Stars and Lovesong, their live shows are legendary, taking the crowd on a beautiful rollercoaster ride. So, we really can't wait to welcome them back to the main stage at Robin Hill this September."

So does this lend more credibility to the Toronto show being at Bestival Toronto? A package deal? Or less? Bestival not wanting to have the same headliner at both events? Either way, I hope we get some news about Toronto soon.
