Roll up, roll up it’s carnival time at Camp Bestival.

Cosmic Ringmaster Rob da Bank says: “We all love a good carnival and last year’s show was honestly one of the best spectacles I’ve witnessed EVER at Camp Bestival – a madcap cornucopia of colour, flamboyance and artistic excellence – some truly great costumes… cannot wait to see it in action again!”

Carnival is a participatory public celebration and has the ability to engage a depth and breadth of audiences, bringing people together in a shared and uplifting experience”.

There will be fire shows and stilt action from Area 51, drum madness from Batala Portsmouth, skanking workouts from Reggae Aerobics, body moving from Isle of Wight dance school Dance Vibez, steel pan joy from The Steelers, proto-rock n roll from The Happy Skifflers, gala Dimanche Gras style behaviour from the Shademakers Show, disco planets from the Energizer Space Base and dance and aerial shenanigans from LBV Dance.

We are delighted to announce that Bestival’s hugely popular holistic zone, Slow Motion will be making its debut at Camp Bestival this year. There might be non-stop kids action at Lulworth Castle this July but Camp Bestival is for you too, mums and dads! So don’t miss out on a whole arena dedicated to contemporary wellbeing, reenergising and rebalancing, from mindful running and meditation to re-centring yoga and restorative therapies. Slow Motion is the place to indulge in some you time, finding a little slice of inner peace away from the high-octane space-based entertainment.

Rob da Bank says: “With all the insanity, rushing around, lack of headspace and general unsettling vibes going around in the world at the moment, festivals are an escape that are more necessary than ever. Last year we created Slow Motion as an escape from the madness of a festival and I suppose the world… so we’re very proud to unveil our new line up for 2016 for an area that really offers a different path and a new vision for you whatever you’re into”.
