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.
