Happy Mondays to headline Sunday at Camp Bestival

More News

Dick and Dom return to bring utter chaos and Camila Batmanghelidjh to keep them in check!

As always an incredibly jam-packed event is in store at this year’s Camp Bestival, so it will come as no real surprise that the Camp Bestival crew have added a whole host of brilliant new additions to complement the previously announced acts.

Legendary Madchester trailblazers Happy Mondays will be headlining Sunday night at Camp Bestival. So you can expect to hear classics like Step On, Kinky Afro, Hallelujah, 24 Hour Party People and more to keep you freaky dancin’ to the very last in the shadow of Lulworth Castle.

“I'm amazed this band are coming to Camp Bestival. The Happy Mondays are one of those iconic British outfits that perfectly capture all that's best about our musical make up...indie, dance, rave, pop and Shaun Ryder’s lyrical wit. I grew up dancing like a rubbish Bez to the Mondays and fully intend to indulge in some creaky freaky dancing some the Sunday night of Camp B..Hope you'll join me.”
Rob da Bank

Loved by the nation for their infectious smash Staying Out For The Summer and with a critically acclaimed new album endearing them to our hearts once more Dodgy will be providing the perfect summer sing-along.

Rocksteady rudeboy Little Roy whose Battle for Seattle album covering classic Nirvana tracks in his own inimitable style has seen him enjoying huge critical acclaim. Plus there will be live sets from bass explorer Redlight, Wretch 32 collaborator Josh Kumra, up and coming singer songwriter Ryan Keen and LA hipster-hippie Jenny O.

DJs include the irresistible and all-conquering 2 Bears, whose recent Be Strong album has been getting almost everybody everywhere pretty hot and bothered. Mr Scruff will be manning the decks for another epic session of madcap mayhem. Plus reggae stalwart DJ Derek, cutting edge joy from Maya Jane Coles, blistering bassline salvos from Gemini, beat alchemy from Luv*Jam and underground action from Dave Hornby the man behind Bournemouth’s renowned Shake.

Dick and Dom will be making a much requested return visit to Lulworth Castle. Anyone who saw them wow the Castle stage crowds at last year’s show will be in no doubt that they’re in for an absolute treat of riotous fun.

The East Lulworth Literary Institute brings a selection of candidates for the ‘How To’ series, where much loved folk share inspirational musings on hot topics. The truly inspirational Camila Batmanghelidgh, who is the founder of the Kids Company charity and a veritable spokesperson for the care and wellbeing of young people will be interviewed on How to Change Lives. And what’s more, previously mentioned daft double act Dick and Dom will be taking the hot seat to share their wealth of silly experience in How to Dick and Dom About.

Scroobius Pip is shaking things up with guest hosting sets from two of London’s best spoken word nights in the form of Chris Redmond (Tongue Fu) and Joshua Idehen (Poejazzi)! Pip, Chris and Josh will be presenting the likes of John Berkavitch, Jodi Ann Bickley, John Osborne, Alex Gynther and John Sinclair who will be sharing the finest selection of their latest word craft.

There's more than a few hot authors reading from their latest books! Channel 4 favourites the Fabulous Baker Brothers; musician turned author Joe Stretch; Radio 1 agony uncle Matt Whyman;  Richard Milward, laureate of teen sex, drugs and rock'n'roll; Ben Crystal, actor and Shakespeare demystifier; Little Nye creator Lerryn Korda; fantasy favourite David Gatward, and book reviewer Stuart Evers.

There's more to come and more to do and 100s of free things for kids to do too, comedy, art, glorious food galore and fun around every corner
