Lineup and Details for Camp Bestival 2012 on Thu 26th July 2012
For the most up-to-date information about this event, please go here: Camp Bestival Festival Guide
Re-writing the rulebook on what a family festival should be, the award winning Camp Bestival has turned the festival model on its head with their awe inspiring family festi-holiday that puts little ones and their music-loving parents at the centre of the experience.
Set in the stunning grounds of Lulworth Castle, Dorset, the event is a feast of plenty for kids both young and old. Featuring a line-up of children's favourites from Mr Tumble and The Gruffalo to Shrek and Fantastic Mr Fox there's plenty to keep everyone occupied on stage. Plus the Kids' Garden is a veritable wonderland of care-free pleasures including 100s of free things for kids to do. With everything from soft play to maypole dancing and knitting classes to circus school, the little nippers wont know whats hit them.
With the young explorers taken care of, the big kids can kick back and drift off in to our escapist world. Think of erudite adventures with art and comedy and cocktails at the Bollywood Bar or gourmet food from some of the most talented chefs around. Or for the more adventurous souls, theres dance classes galore at the Come Dancing Spiegeltent or tomfoolery of the highest order courtesy of our very own Camp Bestival Bestival Blue Coats. It really is the most unique holiday camp youll ever set your eyes on and thats before you consider the staggering line-up of amazing music-makers, lovingly curated by the formidable Mr. Rob da Bank.
Set in the shadow of the castle itself the main stage has so far been graced by musical giants such as Chuck Berry, Blondie, Mark Ronson, Primal Scream, Madness, Calvin Harris, Florence and the Machine and Chic. Throw in a supporting cast of the most exciting up and coming bands and handpicked party DJs and you get a weekend of fun and frolics at the best family festival the UK has to offer.
