Speaking of the announcement, Festival co-curators Josie & Rob da Bank said:

“Scream! House da Bank is about to explode with excitement that we can finally announce our first new festival in many years as we liberate Camp Bestival Shropshire!

Located in the heart of England, Josie and I couldn’t be prouder or more delighted to have finally found a site not only worthy of a second Camp Bestival, but also exquisitely beautiful. Weston Park has all the elements we love, from magical forests and heaps of green fields to lakes and a historic stately home backdrop.

Following the success of Camp Bestival in Dorset, we are delighted to add this new event to our family of festivals to meet popular geographic and practical demand. We plan to give this festival as much love and attention as our Heritage Festival in Lulworth and we look forward to seeing you all again at one or the other…or maybe both!

I love Robby, Josie and the Camp Bestival family”
