Festival Crowd Header

Joining our three previously announced headliners, we’ll have loads more brilliant live music from the likes of Hackney’s finest, Professor Green and lyrical gymnast, Wretch 32...

Going wilder than ever before our festi-holiday frolics are already off to a cracking start with previously announced headline sets from Underworld, Clean Bandit & Kaiser Chiefs and brand new family shows from The Cat in the Hat Live and Dick vs Dom Go Wild in the Ring. Now we have even more news of fantastic live acts, big Camp Bestival faves, mega-wild workshops and brand new attractions, all joining us at Lulworth Castle on the dramatic Jurassic Coast this 30th July – 2nd August, when Camp Bestival Goes Wild! 

Chief Wild Thing Rob da Bank says: “I don't know where to start with our typically all encompassing, diverse and pretty wild line-up. Maybe at the end, with electronic mega-dons Underworld revving up for the grand finale on Sunday all the way back through iconic pop from Alison Moyet, Level 42 and Bob Geldof, young guns Wretch 32, Pro Green and Clean Bandit, plus the hottest new blood Kate Tempest, Slaves and George The Poet. I'm really hoping there’s a lot to discover at Camp Besti 2015. Not forgetting our most requested act every year and a total legend: Mr Tumble! 

“As Camp veterans know, music is only one part of the adventure and our incredible creative crew have really pulled it out of the bag with some really wild arts and kids shenanigans from The Train Trip to West End Kids and all the amazing workshops and wild activities to boot. Really hope to see you at our castle by the sea in sunny Lulworth in July!” 

We are massively excited once again to be able to announce a bill-topping slot from the man, the legend, Mr Tumble. A true force of nature, the utter hysteria surrounding a Mr Tumble performance at Camp Bestival makes Beatlemania look like a Black Lace come back. The wildest high jinx are guaranteed from the number one kids’ clown, so whatever you do, don’t dare miss Mr Tumble when he assumes his throne at Lulworth Castle! 

Joining our three previously announced headliners, we’ll have loads more brilliant live music from the likes of Hackney’s finest, Professor Green and lyrical gymnast, Wretch 32, who commented “I’m extremely excited to be coming to play for my fans at Camp Bestival, expect a special show! See you in the summer!” 

We’ll also have Mercury Prize nominee and long-time Camp Bestival favourite Kate Tempest, world famous philanthropist and sometime Boomtown Rat Bob Geldof, legendary dance machine Soul II Soul, 80s pop powerhouse, Level 42, incredible chanteuse Alison Moyet, the silky voiced Ella Eyre, funk and rare groove legends, Cymande, proper Manchester rave crew 808 State, original punk-pop geniuses Buzzcocks, turntable maestro DJ Yoda, and funny funkers, The Cuban Brothers. 

Bringing new meaning to the word campfire, we’ll also have all out action from psychedelic warriors The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, in your face duo Slaves, bubble gum upstarts Only the Young, BBC Sound of 2015 finalist George the Poet, folk royalty Eliza Carthy, and Australian male vocal group The Spooky Men's Chorale. Plus we’ll have raucous times with Mr Wilson’s Second Liners, Ekkah, The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, Weymouth Ukeleleans, Sinful Maggie, Folk Idol and Reggaerobics. 

Back on board and chomping at the bit to go wild with us, we have a host of Camp Bestival favourites with brand new shows, including the Insect Circus, West End Kids, BRIT School, Royal Albert Hall Albert’s Band and the award winning Funky Little Choir. We’ll have wild workshops aplenty from BRIT School, West End Kids and Workshop Patrol. And brand spanking new for 2015, prepare to be amazed by The Chrysalis Garden, our fabulous new spa and well-being area, and The Train Trip, an astonishing mini carnival on the right side of the tracks, plus there will be truly Wild Adventures with our biggest, bestest and wildest activities yet! 

Helping you to kick back, relax and enjoy finer festival things there will, as ever, be an incredible choice of premium camping and hospitality options with great family facilities and hot showers, including Lucky Cat Hospitality, Camping Plus Premium Camping, Breastival Mother & Baby Chill Out, Airstreams, Tipis, Yurts and much, much more. 

And look out for even more news about The Greatest Tent on Earth, Guardian Literary Institute, The Feast Collective, The Den, Comedy, Caravanserai, Oberon’s Observatory, Camp Bestival Bluecoats, Morris Dancers, and loads more amazingly wild things coming soon!
