Featuring a cast and crew that reads like the greatest soundtrack ever made, expect movie music magic from the likes of FATBOY SLIM who remains our weapon of choice to top the bill on Saturday night following a set from special guests FRIENDLY FIRES. We’ll say hello to the nightclub sounds of GROOVE ARMADA and we’ll most certainly have heaven on our minds when BECKY HILL takes to the stage heading a glittering Friday night Castle Stage triumvirate that also includes a tasty turn from KELIS and SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR featuring daring doyens of the dance, SINK THE PINK.
Winner of ‘Best Family Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards 2019, we’ve got family entertainment galore in the fresh coastal air with a host of CB faves including risqué tearaways DICK AND DOM, outrageous live scientists BRAINIAC LIVE, and CBeebies legends MR TUMBLE, MISTER MAKER & REBECCA KEATLEY, ANDY & THE ODD SOCKS and SAM & MARK. And we have singalong joy with the BRIT School, and performing arts amusements from Stagecoach, plus Art, Science, Dance & Circus Workshops, and kiddie friendly techno-colour courtesy of Big Fish Little Fish, and Junior Jungle.
Take two indeed! Take one was looking pretty good through the lens but take two is taking things to a whole new level with some amazing new additions to our cast. Step up very special guest Kelis making a huge comeback at the moment, the best maître d’ in the world Fred Sirieix helping us curate our food offerings, add in Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess live, a proper standalone comedy tent, a new clubby space for parents and teens and loads more fresh ideas … and, of course, the fans’ favourite Venagboys are back. We asked you guys and you voted for the return of the Vengabus. We want Camp Bestival 2021 to be the best family festival you’ve ever witnessed, so we hope to see you at the Castle!Rob & Josie da Bank
