As Camp Bestival’s circus adventures hurtle ever closer, we’ve got even more amazing fun in store for kids of all ages at the greatest family show on earth… at a castle campsite by the sea. Adding a whole heap of audiophile treats, visuals feasts, gaming joy and sing-along merriment, this July 31st to August 3rd at Lulworth Castle in Dorset is going to be a rip-roarer and no mistake!

We’re delighted to announce that Klipsch Audio presents Classic Album Sundays will be at Camp Bestival with another series of classic vinyl listening sessions in the stunning surrounds of Lulworth Castle’s St. Andrews Church. This year’s sessions include legendary producer Joe Boyd discussing Fairport Convention’s ‘Liege & Lief’ and Nick Drake’s ‘Five Leaves Left’. There will also be a Kids Session on Saturday morning with a drawing contest featuring The Beatles’ ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’.

 Bestival’s world of wonder grows ever wilder as a new kind of castaway – our very own insane clown posse – washes ashore to join the Desert Island Disco. Ramping up the side-splitting action in the splendid Spiegeltent each day between noon and 6pm, we’ll have a cavalcade of comedians, put together by our crack comic squad Get Comedy, that’s guaranteed to make you do an actual LOL.

Rob da Bank says: “There’s always so much to do at Bestival, sometimes even I don’t know which way to turn, but one thing you should definitely make time to check out is the comedy in the Spiegeltent. The line-up this year is top-notch with Nina Conti, Abandoman, young whippersnapper Daniel Sloss and our old mate Andrew Maxwell being just a few highlights from a line-up that includes some of the maddest funny people around”.

For the first time ever Camp Bestival is very excited to present The Den, an amazing new area dedicated solely to 13 – 17 yr olds. It’s a micro-festival within a festival – showcasing new and emerging talent; from artists to DJs, comedians to authors, talks to techno and much more. Created in conjunction with The Roundhouse, and sitting alongside Rob da Bank’s Music Club, it’s the first area of its kind curated by a team of young festival producers.

The Den’s genre-swerving line-up won’t disappoint, either – whether its contemporary folk, live drum & bass or house that rings your bell, you better come prepared to hear some future stars.  There will be live sets from founders of brand new genre Fip Fok, CoCo and the Butterfields, Cornish surfer and singer songwriter Nathan Ball, live drum & bass four-piece Animal House, the darkly melodic Fran Lobo, R&B pop force Karyma Ellis, Uke warriors Medina Ukulele Orchestra nu-soulster Christen Kwama, acoustic troubadour Ali Gauld, multi-genre rap artist ShaoDow, classically trained Tyler Rix and party hip-hoppers Too Many T’s. Plus there will be DJ sets from Pharaoh K & Absynth, DJ Lukey, SGI DJs, Rats In Me Kitchen, Stanley Hood, Hadda and Erol Sabadosh.  Read more

We’re deep in the heart of festival season and as our Desert Island Disco comes into sight, we’re turning up the heat at Bestival with a gargantuan wave of castaways who’ll be washing up on Robin Hill’s shores this September 4th- 7th. Joining the throngs of incredible acts spread across more than 20 stages in 10 fields of wonderment with mega soundsystems, non-stop parties and joyous, 24-hour escapism, we’re adding even more live acts, DJs, oddities and even a brand new area to drink and dance, so there’s a little something for everyone!

Rob da Bank says: “From pop to metal, rockabilly to raging techno Bestivalites have no boundaries when it comes to what they wanna watch, so I book it all! I’m totally chuffed to have La Roux returning to the Big Top once again, the traditional Saturday mosh pit should be in evidence for Skindred, amazing songstress Jenny Lewis will be warming it up for Beck and Bipolar Sunshine and Catfish and The Bottlemen are two of the hottest acts of 2014. Hot Since 82 and Jimmy Edgar are electronic royalty, and I’m delighted to have The Cuban Brothers and Kitty, Daisy & Lewis back for the umpteenth year running. Update your clash finder!”
