Set to be truly unforgettable, Camp Bestival’s tenth outing at Lulworth Castle this 27-30 July just keeps on getting better with even more glamorous Pop Stars & Rock Stars joy in store for kids of all ages at the greatest family show on earth. Joining Madness and Mark Ronson, our Sunday night headliner is true pop music royalty and we’re adding a whole heap of good time treats to keep you dancing throughout the weekend, too!
Rob da Bank says: “There’s been so much talk of musical icons recently and I’m very proud that we’ll be presenting one of the most legendary figures in song-writing, music production and, maybe, the ultimate anti-pop star, Brian Wilson. Having made so many incredible records with the Beach Boys, Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds is a real solo foray into psychedelic rock, introspective lyric writing and a beautiful wall of sound concept album that still blows people away 50 years on. Whether you’re a stalwart Wilson supporter or maybe it’s the first time you’ve heard his name, I hope you’ll be there in the moment for the Sunday headliner in his full majesty”.
Hallowed as one of the all-time greats in the pantheon of pop music, we’re giddy with excitement to reveal that due to phenomenal public demand in the UK, Brian Wilson returns one last time to present ‘Pet Sounds’ in its entirety, plus his greatest hits. Universally hailed as one of pop music's most important recordings, Brian will be bringing his majestic masterpiece to Camp Bestival for a headline sunset performance, captivating the crowds with intricate harmonies and breath taking melodies. An absolute must-see as part of an epic Sunday finale that will feature Leftfield bringing the main stage to a close before our fireworks spectacular, Brian Wilson’s genius and his most influential musical treasure are sure to be a historic part of our tenth anniversary celebrations.
And, as if that wasn’t enough, we’ll also have unmissable appearances from BBC Sound of 2017 top tip, Ray BLK, pop chanteuse Kate Nash, Camp Bestival heroes & rum-funk faves The Cuban Brothers, and chart topper and former Oliver Heldens, Wilkinson & Rudimental diva, Becky Hill. There will be more glorious commotion with Morrisey’s greatest songs getting some Mexican spice courtesy of Mexrrissey, the ultimate Mancunian tribute band The Smiths LTD making a real difference, dancefloor sluggers Dub Pistols getting their skank on, audacious turntablist DJ Yoda getting his game on, the King goes grunge with Elvana: Elvis fronted Nirvana, and new wave funk powerhouse The Blockheads giving us reasons to be cheerful.
We’ll also have Norman Jay MBE hitting the decks and delivering into the good times like only he can, and amazing music from Los Pacaminos featuring Paul Young, Raghu Dixit, Circus Raj, Disney Rascal, Funky Little Choir, Indian Queens, Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, The Shellac Collective and The Ska Vengers.
We’ve still got plenty more family entertainment, relaxing spa treatments, delicious food, kids’ treats and more to announce so keep checking www.campbestival.net and our Facebook and Twitter for all the latest info.
