Announcing Camp Bestival Dorset and Shropshire’s Line-Ups

It’s time to celebrate! Blow up the balloons and bring out the cake as 2023 will mark the 15th birthday of Camp Bestival!

Camp Bestival Dorset, the UK’s favourite family festival, is returning to Lulworth Castle in July (27 – 30 July 2023) for an extra-special 15th Birthday bash extravaganza, with headline acts spanning from the iconic Grace Jones to chart-topping Craig David Presents TS5 and indie favourites The Kooks. Arguably one of the hottest acts of the year, Confidence Man will bring their uniquely feel-good party anthems to Dorset, whilst pop icons Melanie C and Sophie Ellis-Bextor also join the lineup alongside vocal powerhouses Sam Ryder and Ella Henderson. Plus, Dick & Dom, Cosmic Kids Yoga, Junior Jungle and Mr Tumble will entertain families of all ages at the unmissable four-day celebration.

To celebrate the 15th year and on the Saturday of Camp Bestival Dorset, festivalgoers will see the return of the fan-favourite HMS Camp Bestival stage and an epic debut line-up to match with Fat Tony, Woody Cook, Jaguar Skills, as well as Gok Wan back-to-back with festival curator and DJ Rob da Bank.

After a smash hit first year, Camp Bestival Shropshire is also returning to Weston Park (17-20 August 2023) featuring headliners from Primal Scream and pop-royalty Rudimental, to global stars The Human League. Arguably one of the hottest acts of the year, Confidence Man will also join the line up to bring their feel-good party anthems, alongside festival-favourites Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Melanie C. Plus, with over 100+ free activities including Dick & Dom, Cosmic Kids Yoga with Jaime, Extreme Bike Battles and Wild Swimming there’s truly something for everyone at Camp Bestival’s second magical year in Shropshire.

Carousel has been running a hard-working press and influencer programme to support all announcements to-date and has secured over 300x pieces of coverage for the festival so-far with a reach of over 1.4bn and highlights from BBC News, NME, Evening Standard, Grazia & Glamour.
