It’s all go at Camp Bestival HQ! Having announced a barnstorming first
round of acts last week, including two of our headliners, Blondie and Mark
Ronson & the Business Intl plus some sumptuous festival exclusives from
The Gruffalo (live), Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s RIVER COTTAGE CAFÉ,
Gavin Turk’s House of Fairy Tales and The English National Ballet, we are
jumping for joy that we can announce a very special guest appearance from
multi-award winner Laura Marling at our four-day festi-holiday.

Rob da Bank says: “Laura Marling has been a Bestival and Camp Bestival
favourite from the start of her amazingly fruitful career! We absolutely
can’t say enough good things about her song writing and incredible live
shows, so I’m chuffed she’s coming back to Camp Bestival for a rare
festival show headlining the Big Top”.

Currently enjoying an enviable winning streak, Laura Marling’s mantelpiece
must be straining under the weight of her music industry backed BRIT for
Best Female Solo Artist and her public-voted Shockwaves NME Award for Best
Solo Artist. Her beguiling set in the shadow of Lulworth Castle in 2009
was one of the event’s highlights, so we can’t wait for Laura to return to
Camp Bestival for a rare festival appearance headlining the Big Top on
Saturday night following Mark Ronson and Business Intl’s main stage show.

We’re also very excited to confirm that Labrinth will be making an
appearance at this year’s Camp Bestival. The man behind Tinie Tempah’s
‘Pass Out’ and ‘Frisky’, Labrinth is just about the hottest producer on
the block right now, getting the likes of Simon Cowell so hot under the
collar that Labrinth was the first non-talent show act signed to Syco in
six years. Nine-piece skank masters Gentlemmen’s Dub Club have a history
of tearing up crowds making their sublime journey through ska and reggae
adding a large dose of soul along the way. Definitely a band not to miss.
DJ and Singer-Songwriter Yasmin is also confirmed, having hit the charts
collaborating with Devlin on his Top 20 hit ‘Runaway’ and caused a
critical stir with her debut single ‘On My Own’ big things are expected of
Yasmin. Six minds playing music to best portray the thoughts of Jean
Jacques Rousseau using the medium of pop music, Yaaks will be making their
Camp Bestival debut, Modestep will make your brain wobble with
their speaker smashing live dubstep action and Jaguar Skills will rock the
ones and twos bringing his revenge of the ninja flavour.

The success of people power at last year’s Bestival and Camp Bestival
continues this year not only with the previously announced Camp Bestival
Allstars but also with the Camp Bestival Family Talent Show who are
looking for you and your family’s good old fashioned raw Hi de Hi Talent –
sign up onsite at the Little Big Top before Saturday Lunch time and you
will get a 3 minute slot in our Family Talent Show – to be judged by old
fashioned celebrity Talent on Sunday – with the winners receiving lunch at
River Cottage Cafe and a £200 merchandising voucher!

Other amazing attractions will include Amoeba To Zebra written and
performed by Being 747 a natural history musical 4.6billion years in the
making, Heavenly Healing Camp Bestival’s amazing massage & therapy
sanctuary, the Come Dancing classes in the Black Dahlia Tent in Magic
Meadow. The Flying Seagulls Charity Tent will have clowns and entertainers
on hand to help, guide and keep everyone laughing. In keeping with our
Medieval fancy dress theme the Knights of Lulworth Castle with be
performing death-defying Jousting, there will be stunning stunts at the
Freestyle Sports Park, the fantastic Insect Circus, plus giving parents a
chance for a break the wonderful Boutique Babysitting will return to Camp
Bestival. The weekend will be rounded off by an amazing firework
spectacular accompanied by a special Rob da Bank set that will be beyond
jaw dropping.

With our amazing Sunday night headliner still to announce and lots more
fun and games in the pipeline remember to check www.campbestival.net for
more details and the most up-to-the-minute news.
