Rob da Bank said, "New music is always at the heart of our festivals and Camp Bestival proudly breaks loads of new acts. Were you there when Ed Sheeran played to 100 people in the Dingly Dell or when Lianne La Havas did a secret gig for about 50 people playing out of a garden shed?! These are the acts I tip for big things, so welcome Beaty Heart, Alice Jemima, Anne-Marie and Xylaroo. Add to that we all love a damn good rave up at Camp B, so I’m super chuffed to have Altern-8 and Shadow Child playing an old skool set. It’s what we’re all about."

PlusKaty B, KT Tunstall, Squeeze, Arrested Development, Seun Kuti and Fela's Egypt 80, Bananarama, DJ Yoda, Jamie Lawson, Turin Brakes, Brand New Heavies, Dawn Penn, The Cuban Brothers, Duke Special, Louis Berry, Tayo & Rob Da Bank's Prince tribute, Sound of the Sirens, The Demon Barbers XL, The Scorsese Agreement, Delilah Sisters, The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, Circus Raj, Folk Ido, and the live adaptation of the children’s book, Aliens Love Underpants, Dick & Dom, and Justin Fletcher aka Mr Tumble.
