After a 2020 summer in which coronavirus forced the cancellation of festivals across the globe, the event will return to Dorset’s Lulworth Castle from July 29 – August 1.
Camp Bestival curator Rob da Bank said he was “counting down” the minutes, hours and days to the event in Dorset.
He told BBC News: “There is literally nothing [my wife] Josie and I like more in life than standing in a field surrounded by family and friends, dressed in daft outfits dancing to amazing bands and DJs and Mr Tumble. That’s exactly what we plan to be doing at Camp Bestival.”
atboy Slim, Kelis and Groove Armada lead this year’s Camp Bestival line-up. Other musical highlights include the likes of Friendly Fires, Tim Burgess, Becky Hill and Sophie Ellis Bextor. Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh will also lead the event’s comedy lineup, while new attractions for 2021 include the Full Moon Cinema, a Cirque Bijou High Wire Spectacular, and a new comedy venue, ‘the Giggle Box’.
