My word..they say… it’ll be as bumper….and magical ….and wonderful …and no doubt… as memorable as ever it has been…. the ever remarkable 2017 Camp Bestival ……take note …if you never have been… perhaps, you should!

creative simple joys

For sure .. as the web site says …. ..firing up your imagination and getting creative is a big part of the Camp Bestival experience. From dressing up as Pop Stars & Rock Stars, getting your glitter on in Art Town and woodworking in Spinney Hollow to awesomely entertaining circus acrobats, wondrous theatre shows and the simple joys of cavorting with your nearest and dearest, the possibilities for creative play are everywhere in our tenth anniversary festi-holiday wonderland.

action packed

Camp Bestival is THE multi-award winning festival that combines an all-encompassing family festival experience with an action packed camping holiday – a Festi-Holiday perhaps?

the best

The sister festival of Bestival, in its first year Camp Bestival was awarded Best New Festival in 2008 at the UK Festival Awards and has since won Best Family Festival four times at the awards in 2014, 2013, 2010 & 2009.

greatest?

Camp Bestival’s tenth outing in this 2017 at Lulworth Castle taking place 27-30 July this year promises more and more, it’s said as in …even more glamorous Pop Stars & Rock Stars ..fun fun fun… in store for kids of all ages ! Waxing lyrical online, the Festival claims ‘it just might be the greatest family show on earth’

royalty

Joining Madness and Mark Ronson, as the Sunday headliner some true pop music royalty.
The Bestival team are delighted to be presenting one of the most legendary figures in song-writing, music production and, maybe, the ultimate anti-pop star, Brian Wilson.

 

blows people away

‘Having made so many incredible records with the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds is a real solo foray into psychedelic rock, introspective lyric writing and a beautiful wall of sound concept album that still blows people away 50 years on. Whether you’re a stalwart Wilson supporter or maybe it’s the first time you’ve heard his name, I hope you’ll be there in the moment for the Sunday headliner in his full majesty…. so says legendary DJ and Camp Bestival legend, Rob da Bank. Well who’s arguing eh?

penchant

Music specialist, Rob da Bank, of course, curates Camp Bestival’s amazing music line-up. His – says the Festival web site – penchant for eclecticism has seen the legendary likes of Chuck Berry, Basement Jaxx, Madness & Blondie playing alongside hordes of up and coming acts that Bestival has given a nurturing nudge to on their way to stardom – names such as Florence & the Machine, Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Mumford & Sons, London Grammar, Clean Bandit and Gabrielle Aplin, ..amongst many others.

guaranteed

From folk and dub to drumstep and jazz jungle,say the Bestival organisers, there’s guaranteed to be something to get absolutely everyone, young and not so young, throwing those ‘dancing shapes’ long into the July summer evenings.

theatre too

There’s a great arts programme too that offers the best in contemporary theatre, performance, spoken word and discussions, and a wealth of entertaining ‘stuff’ for all ages.

fantastic

Amazing street eating and gourmet treats, fantastic campsite facilities (Bestival are apparently the first ever festival to offer reserved camping plots at a festival ) with Camping Plus, and the option to indulge in an array of fantastic Boutique Camping options. It’s all about a unique start to the summer holidays and the ultimate family festival experience!
