Dorset 2022 Line-up Unveiled


As the excitement of summer 2022 draws ever closer, Team CB are super-excited to announce a whole raft of castaways who will keep Camp Bestival’s Desert island Disco jumping. So, without further ado, feast your eyes upon a boogie wonderland of sequin-powered family delights joining the fourteenth Lulworth Castle-based adventure in Dorset from 28-31 July.




"I can't quite believe it's line-up time again…for the 14th year running! As ever the bill isn't about one big act or one type of music - its a patchwork of music, comedy, entertainment, wellness and food for kids of all ages...from heavy hitters Rag'n'Bone Man and Rudimental, to newcomers like Lola Young and Orla Gartland, Horrible Histories making a welcome return and we have our very first stunt motorbike and BMX arena with Extreme Bike Battle, the best street food in the UK and more circus than you can shake a diablo at. Possibly the most exciting nod to our Desert Island Disco theme will be the holy trinity of Earth, Wind & Fire Experience ft. Al McKay, Kool and The Gang and Sister Sledge all donning their disco boots and high-kicking across the fields of Lulworth. See you down the front in July!" Josie & Rob da Bank


Topping the weekend’s musical bill are baritone troubadour Rag'n'Bone Man, sub bass surfers Rudimental, and a heavyweight disco triumvirate featuring Sister Sledge, Kool and The Gang, and the Earth, Wind & Fire Experience ft. Al McKay, that will be sure to make you do the hustle at Lulworth Castle all weekend long. 


There is of course, family fun galore with Horrible Histories: Terrible Tudors, Brainiac Live: Remixed!, Dick & Dom, stunt masters Extreme Bike Battle, CB legend Mr Tumble and Mister Maker & Rebecca Keatley. And there’s a jam-packed program of entertainment for kids of all ages with Family Silent DiscosYolanda's Band Jam, MC Grammar, Cosmic Kids Yoga, Big Fish Little Fish, a truly spectacular fireworks finale and lots and lots more. 


There’s even more music with a whole multitude of melodious marvels to keep the dancefloors buzzing including RazorlightSophie Ellis-Bextor’s Kitchen Disco, Example, Shed Seven, Jo Whiley's 90s AnthemsFaithless (DJ Set), The Proclaimers, and Charlotte Church's Late Night Pop Dungeon. Plus, there will be scores of Camp Bestival’s firmest favourites from Jodie Harsh, The Cuban Brothers and Elvana: Elvis Fronted Nirvana, to Horse Meat Disco, Lauran Hibberd, Mr Motivator, and many, many more. Check out the artists page for the full line-up.


But that’s not all, Ed Byrne tops this year’s comedy and spoken word fare, and there’s jaw-dropping circus feats including Disco Inferno by Cirque Bijou, Gorilla Circus Trapeze School, and more. Get back to nature at Wild Tribe where there will be Spinney Hollow Craft Village, Robot Junkyard and Delve into the Stone Age. Or treat yourself to some Wellness experiences including Water & Stone Wild Spas, Ice Baths and Sleep Retreat Meditation.  


And, as ever, there will be lashing of decadent and delicious food and drink with The Feast Collective curated by Fred Sirieix, DJ BBQ's Wild Fire Stage, Khana Wala Bazaar, Food Fire Knives and many more temptations besides.
