Madness

Festivals are all about those magic moments when truly special things happen right before your eyes and as far as we’re concerned one of the greatest moments the festival has ever experienced was when 7 men from Camden took to the main stage to headline Camp Bestival in 2010. We can’t believe it’s taken us so long to get them back, but get them back we have, please give a rip-roaring Camp Bestival welcome to the incomparable Madness. Since forming in the late seventies the band have been at the forefront of the Ska movement and during the eighties became one of the most successful bands this country has ever produced spending more time in the UK charts than any other act, but that’s just statistics the most important thing about Madness is their extraordinary back catalogue of bone fide anthems. Songs like Night Boat to Cairo, Baggy Trousers, Our House, It Must Be Love, and House of Fun are all firmly cemented in the nation's consciousness as some of the most brilliant pop songs ever written and helped Madness become the legends that they are today. That and a live show that quite simply has to be seen to be believed. Led by best front man in the business, Suggs, Madness are renowned for being one of the most exciting live propositions you’ll ever see, encapsulating everything that’s fun about music, their shows are steeped in revelry and scientifically designed to put a smile on your face and a skip in your step, loved by young and old there really is no band that more perfectly captures the essence of Camp Bestival and it’s incredible festival goers than Madness.
