The Line-up for our 15th Birthday Bash is here!


We are totally delighted and just a little bit excited to announce that pop chanteuse Grace Jones will celebrate Camp Bestival’s Animal Snap themed 15th birthday with us at Lulworth Castle next July! Joining the legendary music, fashion and film icon at the top of the bill for our landmark family festival frolic are UK Garage and R&B don Craig David with his acclaimed TS5 set and indie rock mavericks The Kooks.


“Who says November is dull and boring?! Just look at what we’ve got for you happy campers - something for everyone from young to old and it’s all happening at our 15th birthday party! Prepare to make some seriously strong memories at our beautiful castle by the sea from the iconic Grace Jones and party starter Craig David through to perennial faves Horrible Histories, Junior Jungle and you have to pull a cracker at East 17’s Christmas Party. And never forget... We Are Family!”  - Josie & Rob da Bank



As ever, there are kiddie treats and family faves galore across the weekend, with Mr Tumble, Junior Jungle, Dick and Dom, Mister Maker, Horrible Histories, Cosmic Kids Yoga with Jaime, and Splash Test Dummies. Plus adventuresome types can marvel at the Extreme Bike Battle, Roller Disco, Mega Skate Ramps, a Red Devils parachute display, Cirque Bijou’s brand new show ‘All You Need Is Love’ and more than 100 free things for kids to do in a dizzying array of family fun and screen free activities, all topped off with a truly spectacular fireworks finale.


Don’t miss out on even more amazing music from the likes of super-hot party-starters Confidence Man, bona fide chart-toppers Melanie C, Ella Henderson, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Sam Ryder and the boys from East 17 who are bringing a touch of Christmas to the party commenting: “Who says you can’t start the Christmas spirit in summer? We can’t wait to bring an East 17 festive extravaganza to Dorset for our Camp Bestival debut! Pull out the white puffer jackets and see you on the fields.” 


Expect festival anthems from Jo Whiley, reggae goodness from David Rodigan, peerless funk and soul from Los Hermanos Cubanos, The Cuban Brothers, and appearances across the festival site from Fearne Cotton, Caity Baser, Todd Terry, Goldie Lookin Chain, DJ Rap, Hot Dub Time Machine, Roni Size, Mr Motivator, Stereo MC’s, Fake Bush, Elvana – Elvis Fronted Nirvana, The Bootleg Beatles and many, many more.


Be sure to bring your fancy dress and seek out your twin flame with our Animal Snap theme and explore a magical menagerie of theatre, shows, wellbeing workshops, circus spectacles, sideshow commotions, comedy, and lashings of incredibly delicious food for all the family from 27-30 July 2023. 


So, grab your tickets now and join us for a fantastic 15th Birthday Bash in the spacious grounds of Lulworth Castle, and maybe even spread a little joy this Christmas!
