New acts

Amazing family festival fun is in store for at Lulworth Castle in July at Camp Bestival. There’s a host of amazing new acts from solo singers to great big choirs joining the bill, so make sure you grab your tickets now for four days of Pop Stars & Rock Stars joy at a castle campsite by the sea.

Rob da Bank says: “I started the Sunday Best label off the back of my Sunday Best club night and Bestival and then Camp Bestival was borne out of all those things, so I owe my record label hobby a lot! So, I’m delighted we have so many amazing Sunday Best acts playing this year… oh yeah, we’re also bringing back our Purple Rave Prince tribute so be prepared to party like its 1999!”

Kicking off with a trio of sublime Sunday Best acts is mesmerising chanteuse Alice Jemima, harmonious sister act Xylaroo and the captivating Mary Epworth. Plus, there’s music from the hotly tipped Rowe, the irresistible Malka, and more Sunday Best goodness from Keir and folk singer Holiday Oscar.

And there will be even more high jinks and hullabaloo from Electric Pyramid, House Gospel Choir, Purple Rave, Prince tribute with Rob da Bank & Tayo, Big Swing Sound, Junior Jungle and Nutty’s Disco!

Comedy

Frequently described as the coolest man in comedy, Reginald D Hunter has become an established headline act across the globe. He’s headlining this year’s comedy. A big hitter on TV, Reginald is a regular on shows including Have I Got News for You, Live at the Apollo and QI.

There’s also Mock the Week’s near the knuckle one-liner king Gary Delaney firing off cheeky schoolboy humour with infectious charm, and the compere will be the straight-talking and quick-witted Kerry Godliman, who is a Radio 4 regular, has appeared on Live at the Apollo a few times, Jack Dee’s Referendum HelpDesk, Channel 4’s Comedy Gala and was Hannah in Ricky Gervais comedy, Derek.

And, ensuring there’s plenty of laughter on the cards for the kids too, there’s new hit show Kidocracy, an interactive theatre show for children aged 6+, presented by Keith Farnan (Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow). Appearing as his alter ego, Brehon, an ancient Irish know-it-all, the show begins when children are told they are being given an island to rule. In just under an hour, they must elect leaders, write anthems, come up with rules that rock and deal with all sorts of crises because running the world isn’t just all fun, fun, fun, there’s stuff to be done as well!
