The Basics

26-29 July 2018
East Lulworth, United Kingdom

Camp Bestival, the family-centric sibling to Bestival, is a relaxed, intimate and inclusive weekend festival at Lulworth Castle in Dorset. 

Mixing music with comedy, theatre and a huge variety of workshops, fun and games, Camp Bestival has become one of the UK's most popular festival-getaways for families. 

2017's lineup saw headline sets from Madness, Mark Ronson and Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds, while the likes of Dick & Dom entertained the kids and Reginald D. Hunter provided the laughs. 

Every year the festival also has a fancy dress theme, with all festival-goers encouraged to go all out and get creative, adding to the eccentricity of this truly unique and immersive music festival.
