Bestival and Camp Bestival 2010 Could Be The Best Bet Yet! Tickets Available
One thing is for sure - there is a whole lot of Bestival going on this year, be it the traditional version or the Camp version (so to speak). The hugely popular weekends are always a success and always entertaining enough (without even taking into consideration the great music on offer). The Bestival 2009 (Isle Of Wight) featured Kraftwerk, Massive Attack, Florence and the Machine, Elbow, Bat For Lashes and Michael Nyman on stage, showing the eclecticism on display, while the Camp Bestival 2009 (Lulworth) entertained your eardrums and feet with Mercury Rev, Chic, PJ Harvey, Roots Manuva and Kid Creole and the Coconuts - quirky without being obscure.
The Bestival 2010 line-up is yet to be announced so let's jump straight into bed with its Camp little brother/sister and see what's under the duvet of dreams. It runs from July 30th until August 1st and exudes an 80s theme throughout its already vast array of stars flashing their wares. Madness, Human League, Marc Almond, Billy Bragg and George Clinton (with Funkadelic / Parliament) all achieved a level of respect (and sales) throughout the previously reviled decade (the latter as a solo act in the States but you get the idea). Friendly Fires continue with the influential sounds as well - and there's always The Wurzels to get reaching for your bumpkin trousers and flagon of cider.
Other highlights of Camp Bestival include Mr Scruff, DJ Yoda, Icebreaker (with lap-steel maestro BJ Cole) performing Brian Eno's marvelous ambient landmark 'Apollo', folk legends Martin Carthy and Dave Swarbrick and curmudgeon-rockers The Fall. More acts will be added soon.
Early Bird tickets for Camp Bestival have all but gone so the revised prices (these include fees) are as follows: An Adult Weekend Ticket will set you back £162 and includes camping while a student version (with a valid NUS or ISIC ID ONLY - no exceptions) will cost £152. If you take any 11 to 17 year-olds, they will cost £82 each while all 10-years-and-under tickets are FREE but you absolutely must book these on-line at the same time as the adult ones. Click on the link below to view all of the options and rules.
Bestival, running from Sep 9th to 12th, may be line-up less at the moment, but it hasn't stopped the Early Bird tickets selling out quickly, but standard Adult Weekend are available for £157.50 (NUS £147) with Teenage (13 to 15 years) Weekenders at £79.50 and, for this festival, 12-and-unders get in for FREE (but you MUST book online with the adults!).
We will keep you posted with the latter's initial starting line-up and any additions to Camp Bestival in due course.
