Carousel adds Camp Bestival to its list of festival clients

Carousel will take care of pre-event publicity and press accreditation for Camp Bestival, manage the on-site press office, green room and media interviews, and provide post-event coverage and reviews.

Hot on the heels of Camp Bestival Dorset in July 2022, Camp Bestival Shropshire will land at Weston Park in August.

It will feature musical numbers curated by festival co-founder DJ Rob da Bank, children’s activities ranging from circus workshops to bush crafts, an oversized children’s garden, an eclectic arts program, as well as food and drink.

Rob da Bank said: “We’re really excited to be working with the Carousel team on not one, but two festivals. We know they will bring a lot of experience to Camp Bestival Dorset and Camp Bestival Shropshire and we can’t wait to get started. Our new site at Weston Park is exquisitely beautiful – Josie and I couldn’t be happier to have found the perfect home worthy of a second Camp Bestival site. Can not wait for next year.”

Jen Higgins, Co-Chief Executive of Carousel, said: “We are delighted to take the initiative to communicate the arrival of Camp Bestival in Shropshire – this is great news! Camp Bestival is the biggest event of the year for thousands of families. We are familiar with all it has to offer, having hosted giant experiential events for our brands at the festival on several occasions.

“Camp Bestival fits perfectly with our list of family and festival clients. Our award-winning team has already ensured that the festival announcement makes headlines. After a difficult period for the event industry, we are more motivated than ever and confident to deliver brilliant results.
