With Simple Minds, Pop Will Eat Itself and Jesus Jones on the bill has Camp Bestival rediscovered its booking MoJo?

Yes, Camp Bestival (Lulworth Castle from 26 to 29 July 2018) is predominantly for the kids – hence the ever-present Mr Tumbe and Dick and Dom.

But at the same time, having forked out a lot of hard-earned money for tickets, those parents who were children of the 80s and 90s also need something to take them back to their early years.

And that’s exactly why its important to see names like these, along with Orbital, The Stereo MCs and The Undertones on the bill.

Between them they have a serious back-catalogue of school-disco dance floor fillers, and with more names still to be announced it would be hoped that more of the same ilk might find their way onto the bill. And of course the guilty pleasure of Rick Astley and the polished vibes of Clean Bandit will also bring smiles to faces as they top off the main stage bill.

Captain da Bank says: “Ahoy there shipmates and anchors aweigh! HMS Camp Bestival is ready to set sail with our first wave of salty seadogs to announce. Expect the unexpected from rock giants Simple Minds and Shed Seven to dance gurus Orbital and Basement Jaxx and a cheeky bit of Rick Astley too…  and that’s just the music. From River Cottage feasts and animatronic dinosaurs, to Insect Circuses, pantomimes and a gin festival, it’s full steam ahead for 2018. All aboard!”

Camp Bestival is this year supporting the Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust by adding a £1 charity donation on to all Camp Bestival tickets. This which will go directly to the trust to be used to fund their amazing work that helps young people rebuild their confidence after being diagnosed with cancer.

Don’t forget there are a host of premium camping experiences i including Camping PlusBackstage Camping and Hospitality Camping on sale now, and if you buy before 11 December you’ll receive some special Camp Bestival stocking fillers.

Soooo...... sell all the cheap tickets off before managing to confirm a refunds policy just to piss people off even more!!! 🤔 nice one Camp Bestival 🙄

That's cool. How about our refund for the lost sunday it's been nearly three weeks haven't you earned enough.

Michelle Maurice Donna Connolly Sara Hopkinson Suzy Eales need to book soon if you want these prices!

gah. we'd love to go, but we travelled 18,000 km in 27 hours on a plane to see Simple Minds and Orbital, so we've probably blown our festival budget for, like, ever! all i can say is "bloody English weather!!!" maybe one day they will spend 27 hours on a plane, flying 18,000 km and come and play in australia!

Guys come on!!! It is a bit sickening seeing you keep plugging 2019 tickets when there has only been 2 or 3 updates on refunds for this year!!! I know what happened wasn’t your fault but please do better at issuing refund updates !!

Shame you won't respond to messenger anymore insult that refund was meant to be priority however early bird tickets seem to have more priority 🙄

Any news on refunds yet??

Hi camp bestival I got married in inflatable church ⛪ this year where can I find photos ??? Please help I have camp bestival. Net but can’t find them anywhere??

Any news on the refunds other than what's online?

Tish Cunningham-you’re famous!! Xx

Jenny Turner Katy Higginson please ?!

Is there any update on timescales on refunds?

Bought!! Melanie Brown I've booked!! Are you still up for coming? Xxx

Rachel Young and Mo Coshall are you definitely yup for going next year Tx

Hi Camp Bestival! Totally understand you are waiting for the insurers to decide what happens about the Sunday and am Happy to wait! However, I booked a treatment at the Slow Motion for the Sunday and paid for it. As the festival was closed the treatment got cancelled. Despite 2 emails I have still had no response or refund for this pre paid pre paid treatment. I really would appreciate a response and a refund for this ASAP. Thanks 👍🏻

Camp Bestival can you stop saying we will update you and just refund everyone. You can't stop shouting about selling your other tickets it's so rude keeping everyone waiting!

Camp Bestival can you rebook Shed Seven and Shaun Lock next year. Don’t worry about simple minds. Yours, Lord Horatio Nelson.

Got mine!
