Camp Bestival

Excited to announce our new campaign: The Final Straw to ban plastic straws from our festivals, as well as aiming for all UK festivals to join us:

“My wife, and fellow Bestival founder, Josie, made the decision to ban plastic straws at Bestival last year along with a load of new green initiatives and this year Camp Bestival will follow suit. Festivals are potentially big consumers of plastics and non-recyclables and all of us in the festival world need to keep working on reducing those elements at our festivals. Hats off to those already doing it and leading from the front… and to the rest of us let’s make it happen!" Rob da Bank

Fabulous! Can you also consider reusable glasses? Pay a small deposit for a cup which is then washed and replaced as you buy more beer. They do it quite successfully at Rock en Seine.

Great news, well done. Reusable plastic souvenir glasses worked really well at The Great Estate festival down here in Cornwall last year.

Reusable or keep sake bear cups works very well. Also decompostable food containers. Greenbelt festival had all food vendors using these things. Also why not have a discount on hot drinks if you use your own cup. Will save even more waste.

You can buy reusable straws made of metal on line.

Great news!

Nice one Rob x

  1. Could do with a better line up for 2018 – what is the budget for a headliner and what about asking the the people who pay to come who they would like to see rather than it being just the acts the organisers want. I understand a lot of bands are out of reach but for the people who make your great festival what it is be nice for you to give something back. Roll on 2018

  2. Not quite understanding the booking camp Bestival??? I’ve tried to book the whole weekend on the payment plan, and it only comes up with booking 1 day the Thursday by the look of it????

  3. Hello camp bestival. I was wondering do you send out a newsletter after the festival with any stats and round up of the event? Awesome surprising things that happened. Maybe explanations on things that didn’t go to plan. Also answers to any questions you were frequently asked during or after the event. I’ve seen on your FB posts a lot of comments asking the same questions. Would be good to see official answers now you’ve had some analysis of the event.

    Looking forward to attending next year.
