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!

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?!”

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…
