“Without further ado prepare to rave (with violins and a conductor) to Pete Tong and his Ibiza Classics, singalong to Paloma Faith, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and McFly, dance like no one’s watching to The Darkness and hear all the Scissor Sisters hits with Jake Shears and maybe save a bit of gas in your tank for special guest James Arthur.”
“My aim with the line-up at Camp Bestival is that there’s lots for everyone but also new bands and acts you may not know yet but need to know - so step up Flowerovlove, The K’s, Hak Baker and Dagny. See you in the fields in July!”
