More acts have been announced for Camp Bestival, which takes place at Lulworth Castle, Dorset from Thursday 27th to Sunday 30th July.
Captain of the ship, Rob da Bank says: “Spring has sprung and summer is finally on its way, so we thought we’d give you even more seafaring fun and games for this year’s Camp B! Something for everyone is our unspoken motto and from meet and greets with family favourites, pop stars, and reggae legends, to shenanigans and hoe-downs in Caravanserai, lindy hopping in Pig’s Big Ballroom and amazing raving for all ages, we’ve never had so much to see and do.”
For family fun there's personal appearances from Peter Rabbit, Peppa Pig, and Paddington on Friday, Saturday and Sunday respectively.
