Camp Bestival theme unveiled for 2022

Dig those flares, dust that glittery ball, and practice those groovy dance moves.

Camp Bestival has announced a Desert Island Disco theme for its 2022 event at Lulworth Castle between July 28-31.

The popular family festival will also feature a brand new Guinness World Record attempt.

More than 324 revelers will be needed to take part in the attempt at the biggest disco dance in the world.

Organizers of the event say it will feature a ‘sparkling array of disco delights throughout the weekend, including a host of glittery sounds from the world’s best disco acts, a brand new disco stage with the biggest ball world disco, which is expected to see families dancing the night away under the twinkling light of the gigantic glitter ball”.

Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank said: “We love dressing up in da Bank’s house…in fact, our costume box has almost turned into a dressing room! So our Desert Island Disco theme had us thinking about all the glitter and glitter – life-size cacti, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, giant disco balls, platform shoes, palm trees, training dance, thigh high boots, Village People, Studio 54, sequins, outrageous sunglasses and satin flares.

There will also be a host of Desert Island Disco themed activities.

Performers on this year’s extravaganza included Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, Becky Hill and Blossoms.

Echo of Bournemouth:

The lineup for Camp Bestival 2022 is expected to be announced early next year.

Camp Bestival, which was founded in 2008, is the brainchild of renowned music scholar Rob da Bank and creative director Josie da Bank. It has won Best Family Festival at the UK Festival Awards six times.

The event also takes place in Shropshire and offers hundreds of family-friendly events, ranging from circus skills, science explorations, bush crafts, family raves, comedy, cocktail parties and award-winning street food.
