Missy Elliott has been announced as the Sunday night headliner for Bestival, marking her first UK show in nine years
Missy Elliott will headline Bestival's Sunday night.
The 'Work It' hitmaker has been announced as the third headliner for the annual festival, which runs from September 10 - 13, and is "very excited" to perform in the UK, having not played a show here for nine years.
She said: "I can't wait to see all my fans I haven't seen in some time.
"New ones and my day one fans! We are gonna have a blast together! Bring your dancing outfits and kicks!"
The five-time Grammy Award winner is the final headliner to be announced for the festival, which will take place at Robin Hill Park on the Isle of Wight, after The Chemical Brothers and Duran Duran were also confirmed for performances.
And Bestival bosses are thrilled to have scored the 43-year-old hip hop star for the event, which is expected to draw a crowd of 55,000 music lovers.
Organiser Rob da Bank said: "I'm mighty proud to announce our Sunday headliner Missy Elliott. Needing no introduction Missy is the epitome of hip-hop royalty, the first lady of party-starting club bangers and a downright legend. I cannot wait to watch the most successful female rap artist ever to Work It at Bestival 2015!"
Other acts confirmed for the event include The Jacksons, Underworld, Mark Ronson, Rudimental, FKA twigs and Tame Impala.
