Spreading hilarity across the weekend, our jokers will be joining a gargantuan line-up that includes Underworld, Clean Bandit, Kaiser Chiefs, Ella Henderson, Mr Tumble, Dick and Dom, the Cat in the Hat, Steve Backshall, Michaela Strachan and many, many more this 30 July – 2 August at Lulworth Castle.

Rob da Bank says: “As ever, we have got a great comedy line-up to keep you laughing through the weekend, proving that there’s more than one way to go wild at this year’s Camp Bestival. From our old friend Marcus Brigstocke and the ace Kerry Godliman to some of the circuit’s hottest acts, like Alex Edelman, Sofie Hagen and Jamali Maddix, we’ve got a ton of familiar fun and new discoveries joining us at Lulworth Castle, so make sure you check out all the satire and send-ups in among the madness”.

#Bestival15 / #SummerOfLove

We’re delighted to announce that Films in the Forest, Bestival’s late night cinema affair, returns to the Amphitheatre, welcoming with open arms and a warm celluloid hug those wandering souls who stumble across their cinematic wares deep in the Ambient Forest. Celebrating ‘Bestival’s Summer of Love’, programmers from Jersey’s Branchage Film Festival and London Short Film Festival have artfully selected nightly double bills under the banner of ‘Peace, Love & Harmonies’.

Upping the motion picture magic through the weekend, London Short Film Festival-selected short films will play each night in between the main features, and we’ll also have live pre-screening music from Brightonian folk troubadour Ben Parker, as well as plenty of cinema snacks and a bar for good measure!

Rob da Bank says: “Even though we’ve been doing it for years, I’m still totally amazed by how fantastic it is to wander into the Ambient Forest and chance upon a brilliant little cinema showing loads of ace films. This year our Films in the Forest crew have done us proud, showcasing our Summer of Love theme in all its splendour, especially with the inspirational Woodstock, and the scintillating Searching for Sugarman. So throw on your finest fancy dress and get down with us at the pictures”.

A FESTIVAL WITHIN A FESTIVAL

#Bestival15 / #SummerOfLove

Taking the festival experience to a whole new plane, Bestival is proud to present Slow Motion. A brand new arena dedicated to energising pursuits, from wild music runs and hugging llamas to euphoric yoga and rock climbing, it’s its own tranquil event set within the brilliant brouhaha of Bestival. A festival within a festival, Slow Motion is a realm of calm and hidden pleasures connecting the body and mind, all laid out on rolling grass with magnificent views across the rest of Bestival. It might just give you the chance to breathe; to escape.

Rob da Bank says:  “Slow Motion does what it says on the tin – there’s nothing wrong with raving, late nights and partying, but now there’s a way of refuelling your mind and body before the next Bestival adventure!”
