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”.
