Camp Bestival 10 days and counting

More News

The weather forecast is looking good and the last few tickets are still available...

July is absolutely flying by and there are only 10 days to go until the Jurassic coast is hit with a festi-holiday frolic at Camp Bestival! Set is the picturesque grounds of Lulworth Castle, there's an absolute cracker lined up for the festival's fifth outing.

This summer has had a distinct lack of sunshine but according to all sources the sun is about to get its hat on hip hip hoorah! The current long range forecast from MetCheck, is looking good and Sky are predicting a “sustained spell of dry and sunny weather from this weekend”.

“What can I say? Just over a week to go and I’m busy packing my spare pants, Silly Olympic sports gear and some records to play to the Camp Besti massive whilst eyeing the sky for signs of blue.. and it’s there! I hope you’re all feeling as confident as I am about the whole shebang - we've worked hard on this one (like we do on all of them!) so I can’t wait to open the gates next Thursday and get you happy campers settled in. Hi de hi!”
Rob da Bank

This coming Saturday, the Camp Bestival crew will be broadcasting a live warm-up show for the International Radio Festival (IRF) on their pop-up Olympic radio DAB. It’s the only dedicated independent Olympic radio station broadcasting during the games and things will kick off on the 21st July with an A-Z of all things Camp B with a live session from the one and only Cuban Brothers who will be whetting appetites for the main event in their own inimitable style.

Fun Kids Radio will be joining in the fun this year. They’ll have a preview show running in the lead up to Camp Bestival and then they’ll be broadcasting from site, so make sure you tune in for lots of fun and games.

You've been promised Silly Olympics and it doesn’t get much sillier than this! Right before the big ol’ opening ceremony is screened there will be a Camp Bestival Camp Olympics Warm-Up Bash and you’re all invited! Hosted by the dapper king of chap-hop, Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer, you’ll be treated to Britain’s Got Talent drop outs Heart and Soul, mega moves from dance troupe Swing Patrol and top tunes from the Medina Uke Orchestra. Plus Lost & Found will lead you in a Best of British 80’s Aerobic Dance Off and there’s a sing-along for all you champions out there. Union jacks at the ready... this is going to be a belter of a bash!

If you like getting messy with music at a festival, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Persil ‘Mosh & Wash’ stand will be on hand with singer-songwriter and musical mum, Sophie Ellis Bextor. Kids will be able to dress up as their favourite rock star and get a taste of what it would be like to perform at Camp Bestival with the special ‘Mosh & Wash’ stage, complete with a live festival backdrop!

There are just the last few remaining weekend tickets on sale and day tickets are flying too, so if you want to be part of the ultimate family festival in 2012, you’re going to have to get your skates on.
