From Glyndebourne to Glastonbury - A social calendar for the 21st century
01 August, 2013 - 04 August, 2013
Lulworth Castle, Dorset
Camp Bestival is known as the 'baby sister' festival to the multi-award winning Bestival. With just 15,000 tickets on sale it's a compact, non-daunting prospect for families and festival-lovers alike.
As well as a great array of headline acts, this child-friendly event also features a host of other entertainment including dance, theatre, circus and kids' shows.
The main arena, Castle Field, is set against the stunning backdrop of Lulworth Castle. There is also a Kid's Garden, where little terrors can run around to their heart's content, the Magic Meadow and the Kid's Circus Field.
There are three types of camping field: you can reserve family-size plots at Camping Plus, hire tents in the Tangerine Fields, or treat yourself to beautiful tips and yurts, or even a gypsy caravan. And if the camping all gets too much you can always repair to The Pamper Lounge for a footsoak or facial.
As if this wasn't enough, you will find yourself with Dorset's magnificent Jurassic coast on your doorstep. Whether it's sea-bathing at Lulworth Cove, an old-fashioned day at the seaside at Swanage, or a bracing walk along the magnificent cliffs, you can't fail to enjoy this outstanding area of natural beauty.
The 2013 line-up is yet to be announced.
