“Roll up roll up! Due to popular demand, we are ready to rock and roll with our Day Tickets for both Camp Bestivals. We create the festivals with love for a 4-day experience with camping but know that for various reasons some of you just want to come for the day. We have some epic day splits for your delectation and can’t wait to see you all in the fields”. - Josie & Rob da Bank
