The best camping festival this Summer
camp bestival

The name pretty much tells you how much of a good time you're going to have at Camp Bestival: The Best. Start your August with a bang, with the ultimate camping festival at Lulworth Castle in Dorest, where there will be music, art, shows, food, and activities that will set your summer blazing.

Between the 1st-4th August, you will experience no ordinary camping trip; forget about your raggedy old pitcher tent, Camp Bestival has no less than fifteen special camping homes to choose from. Who could have guessed there were so many ways to sleep under the stars? First lets look at the Podpads; these eco-friendly wendy houses are colourfully solar powered huts with solid floors, a fitted carpet, shelving, interior light, and range from 375 to 925. If you're looking for romance, then a hand crafted English Ash Yurtel is a good choice; it comes with a kingsize bed, chocolates on the pillows, and flowers by the bedside. Fans of cowboys & Indians are going to love sleeping in tipis, while a Blue Bell Tent bring boutique luxury to the wilderness. There are also several types of trailers, caravans, and motor-homes available for hire.

Now you've got your sleeping accommodation sorted, what sort of entertainment will there be? If you are looking to occupy the kids, then look no further than BigTopMania, where they can brush up on their circus skills; there will also be theatre workshops, bouncy castles, face painting, a sand pit, fairground rides, and for the teens, let them hang out in the Dance Space or get creative in Art Town. On top of all the activities, they will also get to meet top children's entertainers like Dick n' Dom, and watch a Horrible Histories performance.

Music lovers should look out for performances from The Proclaimers an DJ Yoda, while those out for a laugh can look forward to the likes of Alan Davies.

If your feeling peckish, then take your pick from the farmer's market, Women's Institute Tea Tent, or try delicious meals by Young British Foodies.

Tickets for the event are between 180-190 for adults and 98-113 for under 18s.
