From The Guardian:
What will make Bestival 2011 special?
Rob: Two and a half hours of the Cure on Saturday, for me.
How did you bag Bjork and the Cure?
Rob: They've always been on the wish list, particularly the Cure. The Cure have always been in the top two or three. I've been in contact with Robert Smith via email and through his agent for a number of years and it's nearly happened two or three times but I've since found out how thorough Robert Smith is, in a very positive way. He doesn't agree to do things unless he thinks it's going to be absolutely the right thing and he plans it to the nth degree. They're my boyhood band.
