What is Camp Bestival?

Camp Bestival is a British music festival, and a smaller version of Bestival, a four-day festival which was held originally at the Isle of Wight before moving to Dorset. Camp Bestival is a family-friendly event which features a four-day multiple venue music line-up, as well as comedy shows, literature programmes, and workshops.

The festival was held in Shropshire for the first time last year where it found huge success and will return to the site next year. Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank said: "Well, we only went and started a new festival didn’t we? We couldn’t have been happier with the site, the weather, the crowd, and the vibes.

"Oh yeah and paddle-boarding round a beautiful lake with our kids. A dream! So, we’re back for 2023 hoping to ramp up the levels even more from introducing a brand-new camp fancy dress parade, raft building and loads of cool new little pop-ups to mega pop stars and indie giants on the main stage."
