Mark Ronson

Please join us as we welcome the one and only Mark Ronson, a man for which the term multi talented seems a little bit of an understatement. From being one of the world’s most talented DJs to the most sought after producer working today, he sings, he plays, he’s a solo artist, he’s a band leader, he’s sold millions of records and he’s a really nice bloke, phew, have we missed something? Growing up within a musical family Mark immersed himself in the hip hop culture of New York’s club scene and while still at university in the early nineties started to make a name for himself as a DJ, quickly becoming hotly sought after due in large to his eclectic choice in programming, a theme that has continued to run through everything he has done ever since. Mark’s last appearance at Camp Bestival in 2011 came just seven days after the tragic passing of Amy Winehouse and saw Mark dedicate his set to Amy and lead the festival in an incredibly emotional rendition of Valerie that has gone down in festival legend and secured Mark a place in our hearts as one of our favourite ever performers, no surprise then that we’ve asked him back to Camp Bestival to headline the Castle Stage once more for what definitely promises to be one of the highlights of the weekend.
