2024 Theme announced as we journey through Space!

We are super excited to announce that our 2024 theme is… INTERGALACTIC, ALIENS & SPACE! 

We want campers to be prepared to travel to new dimensions and festival galaxies as we head to the fields for four days of incredible family fun next summer. From aliens, astronauts, planets and stars, Camp Bestival Dorset’s ‘Intergalactic, Aliens and Space’ theme will transform the grounds of Lulworth Castle into an other-worldly cosmos for an out of this world festival experience.

Taking inspiration from the galaxy and beyond, families are encouraged to embrace the theme in their masses on the Saturday with their own fancy dress as the festival takes off on a cosmic adventure and spacewalks into another epic year of memory making, fun and exploration!

“When Josie and I wrack our increasingly small but colourful brains for theme ideas we always manage to throw in some cosmic goodness whatever the final outcome. So, this year we’ve gone full tilt in our imaginary da Bank family rocket to a wonderful intergalactic universe of aliens and all things space… so set your galactic sat nav to another space and time and explode your imaginations with all things out of this world. We’ll be creating amazing free things to do onsite to reflect that from science and robots to UFOs, other lifeforms and star gazing. This will be our best year yet and it’s all out there just waiting for you” – Rob da Bank (Our spaceship Leader!)
