June 26, 2015 | D&LOne of the big news stories of the week was Missy Elliott’s headlining role at Bestival this Summer, so you know we had to get a Missy classic on your anthem spot right?
The annual festival that takes place in the Isle of Wight welcomes its final night headliner, in the form of the hip hop female icon herself, on Sunday September 13th and her UK fans couldn’t be happier.
With a recent absence on the music and performance front since 2005’s The Cookbook, Missy has been taking time out to focus on herself and her health, as well as other projects, but although that might be true, her fans have still missed her nonetheless.
Some may say it’s hard to miss her too much with the numerous and timeless amounts of hits she’s currently left us with over the last 18 years, not to mention her six studio albums. Currently working on her seventh with Pharrell Williams and possibly a collaboration with J.Lo, if her guest appearance with Katy Perry at the last Superbowl was anything to go by, UK fans are in for a treat. Of course new fans and day one fans are all welcome, for what Missy has already pre-empted will ‘be a blast’.
Tickets are currently on sale for the Summer of Love, September 10th-13th experience and other acts over the long weekend include Rudimental, Mark Ronson, FKA Twigs, Wiley, Skepta, Gorgon City, Charli XCX and Ella Eyre. Will you be there?
Here’s your anthem.
