Camp Bestival

When: 30 July - 02 August

Where: Lulworth Castle, Dorset

Lights, camera, action! Any ideas yet? That's right, 2020 is the year that 'Camp Bestival Goes To The Movies'.

“I nearly fell off my Director’s Chair when Josie floated this year’s theme past me. The magic of the cinema, the escapism of glamorous Hollywood, the tension of sci-fi, the make-up, the music, the hair!! We all love going to the movies and watching films with our kids, so why not do it live in a field in 2020. We have some stunning installations for you and some once in a lifetime memory makers…step right this way.”

- Camp Bestival curator Rob da Bank

Get ready to experience all the suspense and drama of the Silver Screen, as Camp Bestival goes Larger Than Life. From epic blockbusters and film noirs, to the kings and queens of Bollywood and swashbuckling adventures on the high seas, we’re going to travel through time covering everything from the Golden Age of Hollywood right through to the latest Marvel and Manga madness.

There will be drama, adventure, punk sci-fi, B-movies, westerns, thrillers, musicals, martial arts, swords and sorcery, fairy tales, biblical heroes, gangsters, fantasy and so much more.

Expect glittering and glamorous film stars, cowboys and cowgirls, spies, detectives, aliens, monsters, robots, and maybe a few zombies depending on how well the kids slept that night…

To help celebrate our theme, Camp Bestival will also be home to a brand new open-air cinema, AV shows featuring well-loved cult classics remixed by our favourite DJs, sing-a-long movie nights, acting workshops, meet the screenwriter sessions, some very special movie-related guests and so much more, all to be revealed early next year.

  • As Camp Bestival's name suggests, we place a lot of emphasis on making sure your campsite experience is the best it can be. 

    There are several different types of camping field (plus a campervan area and a caravan/trailer tent area) at Camp Bestival - each with car parks relatively close by to reduce how far you'll need to walk with all your kit (phew!), and each with their own sets of showers, loos (many of which will be of the eco-friendly and non-smelly compostable variety), tasty food stalls, recycling points and more.

    All campsites open on Thursday to give you an extra day to arrive early and set up camp, settle in and plan your itinerary before the main entertainment begins on Friday morning.

    The Main Campsites are located near to the Magic Meadow field and you just need to turn up, pick your space and park your own tent. Camping in the Main Campsites is included free with your event ticket. This area has been divided up into 2 coloured zones, Purple and Yellow... just to help you find your tent. Most of the area in these campsites is for family camping although there will also be a signed area which is for non-families.

    Camping Plus is our campsite for those of you that want to guarantee yourselves a healthy amount of reserved camping space. For an additional fee, you'll get a guaranteed plot which you can select when you book using our online theatre-style booking system, and all the plots can be individually booked so you can ensure the whole of your party are camping side by side in adjacent plots. All this plus a dedicated car park and entrance, easy access to showers, loos and food stalls so you can set yourself and the family up for the day with a cracking breakfast.

    New for 2020, Camp Pre-Pitch is here to make your festival trip that bit easier. Book now and turn up to find a pre-pitched tent ready for your weekend stay. Your pre-pitched tent will be waiting for you to arrive so you can get on with enjoying Camp Bestival to the fullest. 

    Backstage Camping is our exclusive backstage premium campsite, directly behind the Main Stage, offering Backstage Camping Upgrade ticketholders prime, spacious camping ground in which to pitch their own tents. With access to a host of exceptional facilities, including clean, flushing toilets, hot showers and a dedicated car park, Camp Bestival Backstage Camping adds comfort and style to the festival experience, so you can concentrate on having the time of your lives.

    Our Boutique Campsite is where you will find over 15 fantastic accommodation options including Tipis, Yurts, Bellepads, Bell Tents, Bedouin Tents, Shikar Tents and Gypsy Bowtop Caravans. Check out our Boutique Campsite accommodations for prices, more info and to book. 

    Hospitality Camping offers luxurious creature comforts in a beautifully designed, spacious campsite with fast access to the heart of the main Castle Stage arena. This is how to festi-holiday in true style!

    There is also a separate Campervan area for which you will need to buy a separate campervan ticket in addition to your festival ticket. 

    Caravans & Trailer Tents are also welcome - a separate ticket will be needed in addition to your festival ticket.
