LAST CALL FOR WEEKEND TICKETS 

+ DAY TICKETS STILL AVAILABLE

With just six sleeps until the Camp Bestival Circus comes to Lulworth Castle, we’ve got a multitude of magnificent things to keep you entertained right through the day – from the crack of dawn until far beyond the gloaming, there’s something for everyone. So, whether you’re up with the lark, or up all night, the Camp Bestival roustabouts have got your back. And don’t delay, Weekend Camping Tickets are about to sell out, and there’s only a limited number of Day Tickets available – head to Ticketline now to grab them while you can!

Rob da Bank says: Wowzers people, it’s less than a week to go, and I don’t know about your kids but ours are literally about to explode with excitement about the festi opening. They’ve been practising pitching their tent all week so it makes my life easier. Anyway, I’m so chuffed to announce that the Inflatable Church is coming back – it really is our mascot and the funniest place to be on site, with hilarious ‘real weddings’, a wicked wedding disco and some fairly flamboyant clergy! Also, check out the latest line-ups for our all new teen area The Den, the arty-farty Art Town, and the latest food news from The Feast Collective. See you in six sleeps!”

 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
