Camp Bestival Theme Announced

Festival Crowd Header

Celebrating our landmark tenth festi-holiday in style, Camp Bestival gets its rocks off with a theme guaranteed to get the whole family dancing all weekend long.

Yes, Pop Stars & Rock Stars is the game and 27th - 30th July 2017 is the date you can’t miss this summer!


Unabashed pop kid and rock n roll believer Rob da Bank says: “Who hasn’t dreamed about busting a move like James Brown, getting into spandex like Kylie, glittering up like Ziggy Stardust or going a bit more sensible like Blur? Well, its time to get into the dressing up box, be a bit brave and get ready for Camp Bestival 2017… now where’s my meat dress?!”

In among all the crazy excesses of music, theatre, family shows, fairground attractions, outdoor activities, poets, authors, comics and amazing food, we never miss an opportunity to bust out the glitter and spandex and our Pop Stars & Rock Stars theme is the perfect chance to indulge your fantasies and celebrate your musical heroes.


To get you in the mood, we’ve teamed up with the fantastic Ladyland crew, whose merry mini-Prangstas are already getting into the dressing-up mood. With all manner of Daft Punks, Gaga Girls and Beastie Boys, not forgetting whole families of Beatles and more, the force of fancy dress is strong and the possibilities are endless…
