On the Saturday of Camp Bestival’s massive birthday weekender dancers, pyrotechnics, and huge party vibes will descend onto the Lulworth Castle grounds as the HMS Camp Bestival stage will dock in the Magical Meadows. The enormous cruise ship stage will have a line up expected to get the crowd (or boat…) rocking with Captain Rob da Bank manning the helm alongside his first mate Gok Wan with a 15th birthday B2B special. Marawa’s Majorettes, the troupe of amazing world record holding hoopers, will also be dazzling the crowds with their epic hooping.

Jaguar Skills will be launching his pot of birthday bangers to the crowds with a very special Camp Bestival 15th birthday mashup and if that’s not enough, 24 Hour Garage Girls (feat. SHOSH) will take the crowd late into the night with their original flavour of Bassline and UK Garage beats. It’s time to drop the anchor…
