Massive thanks to everyone who completed our festival survey earlier this summer. There were so many great ideas and suggestions and we’ve been working hard to create some exciting and creative new areas and stages, as well as bringing back a few things you all missed.
So here it is…Your Guide to What’s New in 2021, filled with all the new exciting things we have in store for you at Camp Bestival next year...
A festival within a festival for teenagers. We’re designing an entire area with teenagers specifically in mind, with car boot sales, career chats with special guests, and drawing sessions with the incredible (and one of our fave) illustrators Pete Fowler. There will also be an up cycling clothes shack, tie-dye workshops plus DJ and music lessons and open mic afternoons.
Stargazy presents ‘Keep It Cosmic’:
Calling all space cadets! Journey to another dimension in our brand new dance tent for 2021, where cosmic cocktails, double bubble tea, and pure pumping beats rule. Get ready for Silent Disco takeovers, DJ workshops and family fortune style sound clash sessions! Anarchy! After dark you’ll get the full spectrum of sounds from across the cosmos, dub to disco, house to afro, analogue oddities, and all points between. Ravers, start your engines, it’s gonna be a blast!
The New Foodies:
This is where you’ll find the very best in upcoming street food with none other than Fred Sirieix as our New Foodie ambassador.
“I’m delighted to be working with the New Foodies area at Camp Bestival. They have always treated food and their traders as importantly as the music - we’re going to take the whole festival spectacle up a level and introduce you to some amazing new festival chefs, independent traders and food geniuses... more news very soon my friends!” Fred Sirieix
Also, excitingly the upcoming traders will be tutored by The Black Farmer’s Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones, plus you’ll be able to book into breakfast and supper clubs with guest foodie hosts.
Introducing our very own comedy venue…with special guest comedian, Trigger Happy TV star Dom Joly! Yes, hold onto your sides as they may well split with secret sets, the best names in stand-up and improv comedy, and comedy clubs especially for kids.
Wild Tribe Teepee Camp:
Our new eco-friendly camping experience at Camp Bestival. Situated in the peaceful Wild Tribe field, 20 traditional teepees make up the Teepee Camp where you and your family can experience an earthy adventure with nature workshops, folk music and nightly fire pits. You’ll have access to natural facilities such as compost toilets and rainwater showers so you can all experience an alternative way of living for the weekend. Wild Tribe Teepee Camp aims to be an electric, meat and plastic-free area where families are at one with nature.
Kids’ Garden Campervan & Caravan Field:
Introducing a brand new live-in vehicle space for 2021…Kids’ Garden Campervan & Caravan Field! After the overwhelming popularity of our Front Row Campervan & Caravan field, we’re delighted to offer another new space next the heart of the action. Pitch up here and you’ll be right next to the Lower Kids’ Garden and just a short skip, hop and jump into the Castle Field (5 min walk).
And finally…the most requested in our line-up survey poll who we’ve now booked for 2021…ladies and gentleman, boys and girls…we’re delighted to welcome back to Lulworth, the Vengaboys!!
We’re still working on loads more ideas for brand new content for 2021, so watch out for more announcements coming soon.
