Camp Bestival offers seven stages plus a host of smaller venues mainly housing children's events.

The Castle Stage is the main festival stage, an outdoor stage with a decent set up it tends to have a relaxing start before bringing out a few big guns to entertain as it gets dark, the stage is well placed at the bottom of a gentle slope and affords good views, there are catering outlets around its edge, local ones offer good prices.

The Big Top begins each morning with kids activities and comedy before gearing up to offer intimate performances, and climax with a sweaty silent disco arena.

Bollywood and Black Dahlia are both tented stages and offer a chance to dance to DJs, with the later also offering dance workshops from Tango to break dancing.

The bandstand offers a chance to see eclectic acts, and some decent break through artists, acoustic acts, plus a smattering of big name child friendly artists. There's even the occasional comic, or a famous face delivering stories to the kids.

The bookworm stage offers poetry slams and spoken word.

Time For Tease offers burlesque at night and cheeky tea and cakes and storytelling, and karaoke during the daytime.
