Camp Besti unveils Sunday headliner

Festi-holiday fun ahoy! Camp Bestival have already whetted your appetites with a mouth-watering line-up that includes Blondie, Mark Ronson & Business Intl, Laura Marling, House of Pain, ABC, Groove Armada present Red Light, Norman Jay and DJ Yoda – but now you can throw Primal Scream playing their seminal Screamadelica into that magical musical melting pot.

Bobby Gillespie and co will headline the Sunday night along and sit alongside the equally delicious musical morsels and cultural treats to entice you to join us at Lulworth Castle for the fourth Camp Bestival from 28-31 July.

Rob da Bank says: ‘Screamadelica is undoubtedly in my top five albums of all time. It came out just as I was launching myself into raveland, soundtracked so many late nights and early mornings and is at heart one of the best combinations of dance, soul and rock n roll ever.

“Screamadelica and Primal Scream have stood the test of time better than most and I can’t wait for Camp Bestival-goers old and young to hear it either again or for the first time. Come together!’

One of the greatest albums to have emerged during the heady days of the 1990s, ‘Screamadelica’ is effortlessly timeless, so we’re truly ecstatic to announce that Primal Scream will be joining us at Camp Bestival headlining the Sunday night playing their seminal album in its entirety. From the sublime ‘Movin’ On Up’, through the blissful bass of ‘Don’t Fight It Feel It’ and the euphoric ‘Come Together’, Primal Scream presents Screamadelica is a cast-iron guarantee for an epic last night at Camp Bestival. But that’s not all because Bobby Gillespie and co have also agreed to perform their greatest hits too, making for a truly unmissable Sunday headline set!

We’ve already announced that the sensational English National Ballet will be joining us at Camp Bestival exclusively this year but we’ve got even more exciting news from them, as on Sunday afternoon we want everyone to go ball(et)istic in the Castle field when English National Ballet will get you plie-ing and pirouetting en masse in our first Camp Bestival Ballet Flashmob! With Rob da Bank on the decks remixing Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and English National Ballet showing you the moves, this is ballet fun on a grand scale – it’s basically the biggest ballet lesson ever so we want all the twinkle toes troupes at Camp Bestival to come and join a once in a lifetime master class. Don’t forget your legwarmers!
