About Camp Bestival 2022

A multi award-winning festival, Camp Bestival combines an all-encompassing family festival experience with an action-packed camping holiday, something that they like to call a "festi-holiday". Curated by Rob da Bank, Camp Bestival has been offering the most family excitement you can have in one weekend since its formation in 2008.

Along with unmissable music across the weekend, there's also plenty of comedy, theatre, spoken word, cultural talks and activities to enjoy. A specially curated line-up of kids entertainment, from The World's Biggest Bouncy Castle to a spectacular fireworks display, keeps young festival-goers happy.

Stay tuned for more information about the 2022 edition of Camp Bestival.
