We're taking over Dreamland


**Update - Tuesday 17th March**


We are sorry to announce that Dreamland won’t be opening their amusement park during the Easter Holidays and, as such, our planned Easter park takeover and Easter Sunday party will be rescheduled for later in the summer (exact dates TBC). 
Camp Bestival 2020 in Dorset this July/August is proceeding as planned. We look forward to seeing you in the summer.

Get ready for Easter at Dreamland – and the return of Camp Bestival!


Once again, we're joining forces with the UK’s coolest amusement park this April, as we bring a taste of our much-loved family festival to Dreamland with a full park take over. Expect live music, rides, and entertainment for all the family to enjoy over the school holidays.


Dreamland reopens on Saturday 4th April for the school holidays, and will be open every day until 20th April. The park is free to enter, and guests can pay per ride or buy discounted ride wristbands in advance online to save 25%. Members ride for free. 


We took Margate by storm in April 2019 when it set up camp at Dreamland, with more than 100,000 visitors travelling to the park over the spring school holidays. And this year’s takeover promises to be even bigger and brighter. 


Step into Camp Bestival’s Travelling Circus as Dreamland is transformed with extravagant bunting and festoon decorations, confetti canon, and carnival caravans – curated by festival co-founders Josie and Rob da Bank. Families will get the chance to watch incredible performances by Circus Raj, featuring a cast of aerialists, acrobats, musicians, slack-rope walkers, and giant puppets moving through the park in a colourful extravaganza of intrigue, drama, music, laughter and surprise.


Also appearing on the main stage will be Brillig, a wonky, bonkers, and totally baffling gameshow that pits families against families in a fun-filled frenzy. Around the park, guests can dive into nature workshops, join arts and crafts groups, dance at a family rave, and generally go crazy down by the sea.


And once again, guests can join the unmissable Camp Bestival Easter Sunday Party on 12th April, with a family rave, live music and very special headline acts to be announced soon… 


“In a mad world of uncertainty and flux, places like Dreamland are just the tonic for an escapist, magical break from reality. We love this place so much we decided to come back and take it over in our inimitable Camp B style. It’s gonna be a colourful, kaleidoscopic trip… See you on the rides!” - Josie and Rob da Bank


The Camp Bestival takeover will be during normal park opening hours. Always check Dreamland’s website for up to date opening hours.


Remember to buy your unlimited ride wristbands in advance online to save up to and save 25% on door prices.


Dreamland Margate reopens for Easter on Saturday 4th April. The park will then be open for selected weekends and during all school holidays across the year.

Camp Bestival will no longer take place this year
