Camp Bestival Dorset returned in full spirits, 29-31 May, after postponing the festival in 2020 due to COVID-19 and a tentative 2021 return. Since then
Rudimental and Rag ‘n’ Bone Man lead an epic lineup for Camp Bestival Dorset, with legendary acts Sister Sledge, Earth Wind & Fire Experience ft. Al McKay, and Kool & The Gang set to ignite disco fever.
The UK’s favourite family festival is returning to Lulworth Castle, Dorset in July with a set of star-studded acts taking the all-encompassing family festival experience to a whole new level. Family favourites are set to include Dick & Dom, Cosmic Kids Yoga, Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors and Brainiac Live: Remixed! keeping families entertained in a jam-packed four days to remember.
Meanwhile, a stellar sister show is coming to Shropshire’s Weston Park in August with an incredible line-up to match, featuring headliners Fatboy Slim, Rag’n’Bone Man and Becky Hill. From Cosmic Kids Yoga and Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors to Brainiac Live: Remixed! there’s something for everyone.
Speaking on Camp Bestival Dorset’s Line-up announcement, Camp Bestival curator’s Josie & Rob da Bank said: “I can’t quite believe it’s line up time again… for the 14th year running! As ever the bill isn’t about one big act or one type of music – it’s a patchwork of music, comedy, entertainment, wellness and food for kids of all ages. From heavy hitters Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and Rudimental to newcomers like Lola Young and Orla Gartland, Horrible Histories making a welcome return and we have our very first stunt motorbike and BMX arena with Extreme Bike Battle, the best street food in the UK and more circus than you can shake a diablo at. Possibly the most exciting nod to our Desert Island Disco theme will be the holy trinity of Earth Wind & Fire Experience ft. Al McKay, Kool and The Gang and Sister Sledge all donning their disco boots and high kicking across the fields of Lulworth. See you down the front in July!”
2022 will mark a hugely successful 14-year history of entertaining families for Camp Bestival and as well as enjoying a world-beating festival line-up, families can also get lost in four days’ worth of theatre, wellbeing workshops, circus spectacles, comedy and a mouth-watering array of exquisite food and drink – all located in the beautiful, spacious environment of Lulworth Castle.
Speaking on the Camp Bestival Shropshire line-up, Fatboy Slim said: “This year I’m thrilled to join Camp Bestival as it takes up residence in Shropshire for the very first time. People be prepared to enjoy festi-love, dancing and laughter for the whole family in a way that only the Camp Bestival goers know-how.”
Camp Bestival Shropshire will host a wonderland of expansive green spaces, luxuriant lawns, verdant parkland, and enchanting woodlands and will provide a judgement-free zone for parents and a weekend of fun for everyone. With food stalls and cuisines galore, you can forget lukewarm porridge out of a pan, and what’s more, the sheer volume of activities on offer means children (and parents!) will be guaranteed a good night’s sleep no matter what.
