First Acts for Camp Bestival 2015 Announced


First Acts for Camp Bestival 2015 Announced

It might be cold outside but things are really hotting up at Camp Bestival HQ! It’s all coming together for what is destined to be the wildest Camp Bestival yet, and boy do we have a gargantuan line-up announcement planned for early January. But because we’re just a bit too excited, and because it’s Christmas, we want to give you a tempting taster of what’s to come announcing two pretty special headliners and just some arts fun that will be gracing Camp Bestival Goes Wild this 30th July – 2nd August at Lulworth Castle on Dorset’s stunning Jurassic coast.

Rob da Bank says: “Here we go again, my wild and wonderful friends! It’s all getting pretty festive down at Camp Bestival HQ, and whilst we were sat in front of a blazing fire eating too many chocolates we thought why not spill the beans on just a smidgen of the acts that will play Camp Bestival 2015… So, without further ado, let’s intro Clean Bandit as our Friday night headliner who are gonna knock it out the castle with their string led electronic knees up, moving onto Saturday and our special guests will be the riotous Kaiser Chiefs and closing it all down in spectacular fashion one of my favourite acts of all time, Underworld, who are a blistering live act 20 years on from dubnobasswithmyheadman. Prepare to get Born Slippy and pretty wild! Have a fantastic Xmas all my Camp Besti buddies”.
Yes indeed, the Caste stage will be bouncing this summer at our fest-holiday jamboree with a headline performance from techno gods Underworld who have recently been celebrating the 20th anniversary of their seminal dubnobasswithmyheadman release with what we can only describe as utterly mind-blowing live shows, and we just can’t wait to see them!

Underworld said of their show closing headline set: “We’re really excited to be making our debut at Camp Bestival in 2015. We’ll be bringing a show for acid house veterans and festival first timers alike, so see you there next summer”.

Baroque pop giants Clean Bandit will also be playing a brilliant headline set for us! Fusing lush classical motifs with deep house and electro pop, they blew us away a couple of years ago, and now they’re back at the top of the bill to do it all again! Ace. And finally for now, we can announce our very special guests, the ultimate sing-along mob, Kaiser Chiefs! We predict a riot of mums and dads singing at the top of their voices on Saturday night. And don’t forget, there are a host of new acts, old faves, and way beyond still to announce!

There will, as ever, be a thrilling mix of theatre, shows, attractions, activities, poets, authors and talks for all the family, including some incredible new shows like The Cat in the Hat. Yes! We’re ridiculously excited to say that Dr Seuss’s best-loved creation will be rocking the tots (and let’s face it, everyone else) in Lulworth with us this summer. If you can find a more joyous and lively kids theatre show we’ll eat our hats! And back by extremely popular demand were delighted to say Dick V Dom Go Wild in the Ring will see our favourite duo unleashing their unstoppable madness for everyone to enjoy. Anyone who’s seen them before will know that they’re unmissable, so make sure you’re there! There’s so much more arts, theatre, shows and more to announce, from the most beautifully enchanting to the sublimely silly, so watch this space when we tell all in January.

And we’ll also have an adventurous mix of truly wild fun and games throughout the weekend, including Explore Your Inner Beast, which will be all about bushcraft, den building, foraging, survival skills and wild cooking, and Woodland Adventures, which will maximise the wild times with mud kitchens, campfires, nature hunts, mass sleep outs, daily picnics and falconry. There’s loads more Wild action happening, so look out for lots more info in the New Year, plus we’ll have the return of The Den and so much more. We can’t wait to tell you all about it!
