We literally love a good family friendly festival, and everyone who goes to Camp Festival raves about what an amazing time they’ve had.  We are so jealous that we haven’t been yet, but we are hoping that this year will change that.  Bestival is celebrating it’s tenth birthday bash, and we’ve got everything crossed that we get to join them for this humdinger of a shindig.

Who’s Headlining Camp Festival On Friday Night?

To celebrate the tenth birthday bash, Bestival are being joined by one of the biggest names in pop right now.  Mark Ronson will be wowing the crowd with some of his greatest hits, including Uptown Funk, Summer Breaking and I’m pretty confident there won’t be a pineapple in sight.  There’s going to be so many feel good vibes around this performance, it’s definitely not one to be missed.

Mark Ronson is joining a long list of exciting acts and performances including School of Rock the Musical, Holly Johnson, All Saints, Leftfield, Louisa Johnson, Skream, David Rodigan, the Bootleg Beatles, Mr Tumble, Dick and Dom, and the Tudors on Tour plus many more.

Camp Bestival Saturday Night Headliners Revealed

Camp Bestival have announced that Madness will be taking to the stage on Saturday night, and it will be amazing!  I’m a huge fan of Madness and have enjoyed their hits since I was a child.  I was brought up on Baggy Trousers and House of Fun.  They are a band that have really stood the test of time, and they will literally get the party rocking at Lulworth Castle in Dorset.

Rob da Bank says: “Madness have always been up there in terms of rocking UK bands but weirdly the last few years has seen them get even better live. I’ve had the pleasure of listening to their music for the past four decades, DJing for their House of Common festi, warming up for them at this very same festival a few years back and being chased round the campsite by Suggs in the middle of the night. These guys are dangerous and we can’t wait to get ‘em back for Camp Bestival”.

Is Camp Festival A Family Friendly Festival?

I love family friendly festivals are they are the ultimate playground for children and their parents.  There is no danger of getting bored and there is something for everyone.  Kids are king at Camp Bestival and they will be spoilt for choice with the entertainment, activities and child friendly areas they are able to explore.  It’s like waking up to the biggest, best playground ever and being able to enjoy every moment of freedom without a hint of boring stuff.  There’s no ‘it’s time to go home’, because Camp Bestival is home.

Fill your day with a visit to the Upper Kid’s Garden, stop by BigTopMania or just enjoy the festival atmosphere.  There’s soft play for younger children, a baby chill out zone and plenty of rides and themed activities.

For family activities pop down to Dingly Dell and discover how to make fires together, build a home for the fairies or say hello to the visiting owls.  All three of these things are on our list of things to do at Camp Bestival!

  1. Wow! £200 for a ticket!!! None of the musical acts there are really to my taste, but it does look like a great family fun weekend!

  2. I really want to go to Camp Bestival one year – it sounds absolutely amazing! For various reasons it won’t be our year this year, but the line up sounds great!

  3. Is it sad that I didn’t even know what Camp Bestival was!?? I do now though, so I now consider myself reliably informed. Phew!

  4. I’ve heard so much about Camp Bestival. It sounds & looks amazing. Haven’t been to any festival for about 5 years now because of work 🙁
