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”.

Author of the incredibly popular teen fiction series Geek Girl, Holly Smale will run a Creative Writing Masterclass, and Inspo Corner will give you the lowdown from Britain’s youngest head chef Luke Thomas.

Rob da Bank’s Music Club returns to The Den once again this year, with a series of in depth masterclasses and workshops including hip-hop philosophy, singing lessons, MC workshops, guitar lessons and the chance to make your own music video. As the man himself, Rob da Bank says: “My Music Club is the place to be at Camp Bestival if you’re between 13 and 17 years old and want to get into music, or just hang out and be inspired – it’s that simple. Be there!”

CHUCKLE BROTHERS’ DAY

 

We officially declare Thursday 5th of May Chuckle Brothers’ Day!

Rob da Bank says: “I’m not sure if there’s an emoji for ‘wetting yourself laughing’ yet but we need one for the Chuckle Brothers. I booked them as a bit of a laugh last year but they drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend and had to do about 1000 selfies afterwards for some rabid fans. I’m still not sure I understand it all but i do love ‘em, and had to get them for all of our shows this year!”
