Camp Bestival Wins Again
Camp Bestival has triumphed yet again at the UK Festival Awards, which were held last night (December 1st) at Camden’s Roundhouse. Beating stiff competition in one of the ceremony’s most fiercely contested categories the Lulworth Castle based event claimed the Best Family Festival Award for the second year on the trot, and for the fourth time in the festival’s six year history.
Camp Bestival promoter Rob da Bank commented: “Umm crikey well that’s a lovely surprise to have won this for Camp Bestival two years running. Some stiff competition from some great festivals but I’m really chuffed for the team that we delivered another award winning festival for our amazingly loyal audience again. Thanks everyone for voting and see you in the sunshine in July”.
Featuring performances from Mr Tumble, Ben & Holly, Horrible Histories, James, De La Soul, Basement Jaxx, Johnny Marr, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Nick Mulvey and many more, Dorset’s finest festival also saw brand new attractions the Feast Collective, Oberon’s Observatory, Project Wild Thing and the Greatest Tent on Earth drawing huge crowds, with a full programme of theatre, shows, attractions, activities, poets, authors and talks keeping families entertained all weekend long. It’s year-round hard work that makes the event as thrilling as it can possibly be for festivalgoers of all ages, so it’s especially rewarding to land the accolade that the Camp Bestival crew wanted most, Best Family Festival. Ultimately, it’s the crowd that makes Camp Bestival as fantastic as it is though, so Team CB want to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who came and made it such an incredible weekend, and to everyone that voted, too!
Plans are already well under way for next year, with the 2015 theme, Camp Bestival Goes Wild, launched by legendary botanist David Bellamy last week, and line-up announcements due imminently, so watch this space.
The awards were cause for further celebration, as Camp Bestival co-founder Rob da Bank took away the Outstanding Contribution to Festivals award, which was presented to him by his own festival inspiration Michael Eavis.
