With HMS Camp Bestival’s fabled return to Lulworth Castle just announced Team CB hasn’t finished dropping the knowledge just yet, we have news of a whole cavalcade of amazing acts joining the bill for this year’s Animal Snap-themed festival.
Taking the musical delights to brand new heights the lastest additions to the line-up include Dublin’s Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson AKA singer-songwriter CMAT, rising star Sam Tompkins, DJ & producer Krystal Roxx, CB stalwarts Dub Pistols hitting the decks for a DJ Set, mariachi duo Vote Pedro, Fat Tony’s euphoric retro pop party Club De Fromage, a career-spanning celebration of the thin white duke at the Bowie Disco and kiddie-rave pioneers Big Fish Little Fish.
Don’t miss funk, soul, disco and house courtesy of DJ Emma, Bestival originals the Sombrero Sound System, former Cream resident and all round Balearic beauty Phat Phil Cooper, Dorset’s own Jemma Bolt, and dancefloor doyen Goldierocks. And making sure that the disco never stops we have Rhythm of the 90s, Jim8track, Bobbin and Darren Davies.
These latest additions join previously announced headliners Grace Jones, Craig David Presents TS5 and The Kooks and pop-tastic acts Confidence Man, Melanie C, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Sam Ryder and Ella Henderson. Plus, Dick & Dom, Cosmic Kids Yoga, Junior Jungle and Mr Tumble will entertain families of all ages at our unmissable four-day celebration.
This year, Lulworth Castle will transform into a magical menagerie for the whole family to let their inner animals shine with the ‘Animal Snap’ theme. Tying in with the theme, Camp Bestival is partnering with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for 2023’s edition of the festival.
“Across the world, and in the UK, nature is on its knees. Half of all UK native species are in decline, and population sizes of global wildlife have plummeted by 69% on average since 1970.
“But it isn’t too late to turn things around. WWF is delighted to be working with Camp Bestival this year to share our work with festivalgoers and get vital support to bring our world back to life by protecting and restoring species and habitats for the benefit of future generations.” - Louise Oakley, Director of Events and Community Fundraising at WWF
