Camp Bestival returns to the UK this year with a full weekend celebrating music, arts and culture once again being set on the grounds of Lulworth Castle, Dorset at the end of July. But before the main event kicks off, Bestival will be holding a one-day celebration at one of London’s top universities.
Bestival and Camp Bestival were founded by Goldsmiths, University of London alumni Josie and Rob da Bank, and now they’re going back to school to bring the festivals’ world-renowned innovative design aesthetic and daring music policy to transform the university’s historic grounds into a hotbed of audio-visual creativity.
On Friday (June 17), Bestival will take over the university grounds with a free outdoor party including performances on the Sunday Best x Pure Gold stage, a Bollywood cocktail bus, a street food market, and a wealth of inspiring talks.
As day turns to night, visitors will be treated to two gigs. Ghostpoet, Rosie Lowe, and Nocturne will take over The Great Hall whilst Rob da Bank and Friends featuring Disciples, Goldierocks, and Wired Radio will perform on The Stretch.
Of course, the party is only a warm up for the Camp Bestival celebrations that will take place in Dorset between 28th-31st July, where the line-up includes Fatboy Slim, Tears For Fears, Jess Glynne, Katy B, KT Tunstall, Squeeze, and Arrested Development, amongst many more.
