Camp Bestival 2020: Fatboy Slim and Liam Payne headlining

Camp Bestival was arguably the first large-scale family music festival, at least in the UK, and even today it continues to lead the way for other festivals of its kind. The caliber of artists that Rob Da Bank manages to secure as well as the magical element derived from its predecessor (Bestival, for those who don’t remember) puts it on a pedestal in terms of music festivals for the whole family.

The 2020 lineup is up there with the most danceable of the festival in recent years; Headlining at Lulworth Castle this year are big beat legend Fatboy Slim, One Direction alumni Liam Payne, alongside Groove Armada and Friendly Fires who will rock your hips until the kids s fall asleep.

The supporting cast includes an array of Sophie Ellis Bextor sounds [ft. Sink The Pink]The Sugarhill Gang, The Voice winner Becky Hill, Level 42 and Heather Small, alongside the usual wonder to entertain the whole family, including the Aardman’s Incredible Stage Machine, Full Moon Cinema, Bowie Nightcluband the annual Pyrotechnic show at the Son et Lumière castle to crown the enchanting weekend.

There are still plenty of activities and artists to reveal, so stay tuned.


Camp Bestival 2020 is taking place in East Lulworth, UK from July 30 to August 2.
