Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, Liam Payne and Friendly Fires headline Camp Bestival 2020

The Camp Bestival crew today announce the momentous and mighty line-up appearing across all the stages at the UK’s much-loved family festival in Lulworth Castle from the July 30th – August 2nd 2020. Step into the world of the silver screen with marvellous entertainment for all the family, including headline sets from music favourites FATBOY SLIM, LIAM PAYNE and GROOVE ARMADA, as well as special guest set from indie rock legends, FRIENDLY FIRES.

Winner of ‘Best Family Festival’ at UK Festival Awards 2019, this year’s Movies themed Camp Bestival promises a weekend like no-other to kick off the summer holidays.

We can’t think of a style of music that isn’t on the bill this year – from rave to grime, classical to pop, guitars and reggae. From the original party-starter Fatboy Sim and indie royalty Friendly Fires through pop stars Liam Payne and Becky Hill to Groove Armada and a special Sophie Ellis-Bextor show with Sink The Pink, not forgetting our new and breaking acts like Georgia, Biig Piig and Self Esteem. It’s not just about music – it’s all going off from CBeebies to skate ramps, an outdoor cinema, tree climbing, Wild Tribe screen-free adventures into nature, yoga, meditation and explosive science shows! Get ready for Camp Bestival 2020!

Other smash-hit stars taking to the stage include BECKY HILL and rising star, GEORGIA, pop royalty SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR, radio legends SARA COX and JO WHILEY, as well as YouTube sensations and 2019 X Factor Finalists, MAX & HARVEY.

This year at Camp Bestival will be special one for me as I am bringing my daughter for her first festival. Infantile grown ups, watch our children grow and glow as we attempt to teach them about the festi-love, dancing and laughter…

The party doesn’t stop there – Camp Bestival are proud to welcome back CBeebies with appearances from Kids’ TV faves Mr Tumble, Mister Maker and the Shapes, and Rebecca Keatley with much more to be revealed soon. Youngsters can also get down and dance with a back-to-back line-up from the likes of the legendary Dick & Dom, Britain’s Got Talent superstars Boogie Storm, CBBC’s Sam & Mark and not forgetting a rave with the UK’s favourite family ravers Big Fish Little Fish. Why not channel your inner artist with Aardman Model Making Workshops or put on your science goggles and get ready for the weird and wonderful with live science shows by Brainiac Live and TheDadLab.

I’ve heard amazing things about Camp Bestival and can’t wait to head down to Lulworth Castle to join the party!

Go back to nature and discover Wild Tribe, the screen-free field returning for its second year with Spinney Hollow’s Craft Village, bushcrafts and bivouac building, drumming circles, immersive theatre from Mossy Crow, water slides, zip lines, tree climbing, campfires, calm spaces and hortisculpture. What’s more, young environmentalists will be able to join in activities with Youth Strike 4 Climate, founded by climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

Encompassing the glamour of Hollywood, Camp Bestival will transform into the most enchanting film set for the weekend. New to 2020, festivalgoers will enter the world of magical movie mania with AV shows featuring well-loved cult movie classics remixed by DJ Yoda, acting workshops from Stagecoach and The BRIT School and a Sunday finale like no other with Son et lumière fireworks and projections on Lulworth Castle. Be sure to also not miss the Full Moon Cinema, an out-of-this-world outdoor cinema to celebrate the full moon on Saturday, plus who better to talk through his career in screenwriting than Irvine Welsh.

Camp Bestival is absolutely me and my family’s favourite weekend of the year…can’t wait to return & put on another cracking 80s party. Last year the tent was bouncing with all ages, love seeing kids on their parent’s shoulders raving along to Wham! – this year’s gonna be even bigger & better.
