Camp Bestival Ringmater, Rob Da Bank, said, "I hope you’re loving these new additions as much as I am! Pip & Dan and Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are back at the Castle and I can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing Kate Tempest, Mr B the Gentleman Rhymer and Wild Smiles. We all love a choir, so we’ve got plenty of that going on, and, with some Ram Jam action, electro swingers and the ace John Kennedy, it’ll be non-stop dancing, and that’s before you even get to the Travelling Barn and have a right ole hoe-down and a lovely ale! I can’t wait!"
