Camp Bestival Dorset announces 2024 line up

UK Camp Bestival Dorset 2024

It’s here Campers! Camp Bestival Dorset organisers are HUGELY excited to finally be able to share the 2024 lineup with you!

Kicking off headline proceedings will be a UK festival exclusive with PETE TONG IBIZA CLASSICS – JULES BUCKLEY & THE ESSENTIAL ORCHESTRA who will twist, turn and send everybody’s favourite dance anthems into the classical stratosphere over the four-day celebrations. Pop Queen Paloma Faith will also make her festival debut as a headliner but anticipate anything other than a ‘Lullaby’ during her performance. McFly completes the trio of headliners and will ‘Shine a Light’ on families all over the fields. Expect nothing short of another unforgettable Camp Bestival weekender!

Hit machine JAMES ARTHUR joins 2024’s billing as Special Guest and ORBITAL will keep Lulworth in orbit with their energetic and nostalgic sets. Families will definitely feel like dancing when JAKE SHEARS dons his Cabaret splendour and THE DARKNESS will take the crowd through their 20-plus-year music catalogue including hits such as “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”, “Love Is Only A Feeling” and *maybe* even “Christmas Time”. Returning to Camp Bestival is the re-born superstar SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR who is also anticipated to get the whole family singing and dancing at Lulworth Castle after landing straight back at the forefront of the cultural zeitgeist and UK-charts in 2024.

The lineup also includes a collection of DJs past and present including Camp Bestival’s favourite disc jockeys GOK WAN, DAVID ‘RAM JAM’ RODIGAN, on top of the house legend ROGER SANCHEZ. CRAIG CHARLES will also bring his Funk and Soul House Party to Lulworth as well as AROOP ROY, DAISYBELLE & CARLY FOXX and DJ NOSE It. HAK BAKER is also set to appear and wow the crowds with his lyrical genius as well as indie kings THE K’S. Up and coming 16-year-old singer songwriter LOWEROVLOVE will also make an appearance on top of DAGNY, HIP HOP HOUSE BAND, COACH PARTY, CHE MAC, MITCH SANTIAGO and SNAYX.

Elsewhere on the lineup, families can expect THE AMY WINEHOUSE BAND, HOUSE GOSPEL CHOIR, KATIE GRACE, THE SMYTHS, OLD TIME SAILORS, THE MAGIC NUMBERS, DOGSHOW, ELLIE SAX, TINA EDWARDS, FRED ROBERTS, FFION REBECCA BACK TO ONE, RASCAL RAVES and JEMMA BOLT, amongst so many other acts and talent who will soundtrack the ultimate family festival holiday experience. It also wouldn’t be Camp Bestival without THE CUBAN BROTHERS, BIG FISH LITTLE FISH, GOLDIEROCKS and all killer no filler JUNIOR JUNGLE.

The fun continues with a sensational lineup of family favourites to delight crowds over a jam packed four days in the spectacular grounds of Lulworth Castle. From Horrible Histories: Rotten Royals, Brainiac Live, Dick and Dom, Hacker T Dog & Katie Thistleton, to mischief and singalongs from Mr Tumble, Mister Maker, Cosmic Kids Yoga with Jaime, Mr Motivator, Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer and with The Pop Bingo Disco, there’s enough family fun for everyone.

Hold on to your hats good folk of Camp Bestival Dorset, it’s time for some lineup news to light up your January! Without further ado prepare to rave (with violins and a conductor) to Pete Tong and his Ibiza Classics, singalong to Paloma Faith, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and McFly, dance like no one’s watching to The Darkness and hear all the Scissor Sisters hits with Jake Shears and maybe save a bit of gas in your tank for special guest James Arthur. Oh yeah and when Mum or Dad have taken the kids to bed and you’re staying out for that extra hour or three, don your finest dance trousers for Orbital, Roger Sanchez and Gok Wan. ‘My aim with the lineup at Camp Bestival is that there’s lots for everyone but also new bands and acts you may not know yet but need to know – so step up Flowerovlove, The K’s, Hak Baker and Dagny. See you in the fields in July!
