3,2,1…Superheroes and heroines assemble! Camp Bestival have revealed the second wave of interstellar headliners completing the line-up at the UK’s much loved biggest and best family festival in Lulworth Castle from the 25th – 28th July 2019.
Nile Rodgers & Chic will be bringing the good times as the Saturday night headliner, whilst BBC Radio 1 legend Annie Mac will take to the decks as the Sunday night, ending Camp Bestival with some boogie-worthy dance beats. Not forgetting the youngsters, pop duo & YouTube sensations, Max & Harvey will also perform a live set and Q&A on the Castle Stage.
Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank say: “We’re really proud to unveil two of the world’s biggest party starters in their own fields - Nile and Chic go back a long way with us and they’re going to have everyone dancing at Lulworth Castle. BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac is one of the UK’s best DJs, tastemakers and a mama to boot so we know she’s going to press all the right buttons. Josie and I really do strive to make Camp Bestival not only the best family festival out there but also the ultimate way to kick off your summer holidays. This year we’ve got some whacking great headliners and loads of amazing family activities, we will be prioritising our teens to keep ‘em happy with a new screen free area avoiding technology – The Wild Tribe. See you in the fields X”
The acts join the out-of-this-world line-up alongside Jess Glynne (Friday), The Human League (Friday), Sister Sledge, Sara Cox, Biq Shaq, Vengaboys, East 17 and many more, promising a weekender like no other. For the 90s kids, Spice Girl Melanie C, will bring the girl power with her mega mixtape.
Raving isn’t just for adults, the kids can also get down and dance with a set from Big Fish Little Fish and more acts including Mr Tumble, Mister Makes & The Shapes and CBBC favourites Sam & Mark.
As well as mighty music and entertainment for all the family, Camp Bestival will bring more momentous magic with an array mouth-watering food offerings, exciting workshops and fun for the little ones, including Wild Tribe, a brand-new kid’s area for 2019. Powered entirely by solar and alternative technology, the area will bring kids down to earth with screen-free activities such as bush craft, mud slides and drumming circles.
But that’s not all, festi-goers should watch this space as more out-of-this-world acts, DJs and heroic entertainment will be revealed before the Camp Bestival crew are go!
