Kicking off 2016 in astronomic fashion, Team CB are set to dispel the January blues with a cavalcade of cosmic treats that will keep rocketeers and space people dancing all weekend long this coming July 28-31. Joining our previously announced headliners Fatboy Slim, Tears for Fears and Jess Glynne, and Aliens Love Underpants, Dick and Dom and Mr Tumble, we’re over the moon to announce even more astronutters who will be joining Camp Bestival’s festi-holiday frolics at Space Camp Lulworth for a party that’s sure to be out of this world!

Rob da Bank says: “Prepare for lift-off my space brothers and sisters… we are T-minus 184 days and, whilst I’m busying packing dried food and spare pants for the trip to outer space, I’ve also been booking a load more bands and DJs. From Katy B and KT Tunstall, to London legends Squeeze, hip-hop royalty in the form of Arrested Development and the incredible afro beat of Seun Kuti, it’s a veritable smorgasbord of styles from around the world… and outer space! Can’t wait to see you at the launch pad!

We’re super-excited to welcome the queen of rave pop, Katy B, to Lulworth castle! A chart invading trailblazer, Katy’s beat-driven vignettes laid the foundations for a whole host of recent chart stars, and with brand new album Honey - the follow up to chart topper Little Red - set to soundtrack the summer, she’s a dead cert to blast us into outer space! We’ll also have stratospheric action from Scottish chanteuse KT Tunstall, London’s finest post-punk hit-machine Squeeze, enduring hip-hop troubadours Arrested Development, keepers of the Afrobeat flame Seun Kuti & Egypt 80, the UK’s most successful girl band ever Bananarama, turntable wizard DJ Yoda, singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson, chill out specialists Turin Brakes, acid jazz innovators Brand New Heavies, confessional rapper Loyle Carner, reggae queen Dawn Penn, Havana’s greatest gift to humanity The Cuban Brothers, and hobo-chic originator Duke Special.
 
And there will be plenty more intergalactic joys with Louis Berry, Rob da Bank & Tayo’s Prince tribute, Purple Rave, Sound of the Sirens, The Demon Barbers XL, Sound and Vision: A Celebration of David Bowie presented by Rob da Bank, Lizzie Ball and the Classical Kicks Orchestra, The Scorsese Agreement, Delilah Sisters, The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band, Circus Raj and Folk Idol.

Tears For Fears Announced!

WE’RE HEAD OVER HEELS TO ANNOUNCE OUR
INTERSTELLAR SUNDAY NIGHT HEADLINERS
TEARS FOR FEARS

With Jess Glynne and Fatboy Slim already announced as Friday and Saturday night headliners, not forgetting Dick and Dom, Mr Tumble and Aliens Love Underpants, excitement is already reaching fever pitch at Camp Bestival mission control! And now we’re ready to hit escape velocity on our way to Outer Space with the announcement of our Sunday night headliners who will be wowing the crowds this coming 28-31 July at Lulworth Castle in Dorset. Tickets are flying out at warp speed, so get in there while you still can!

Rob da Bank says: “Songs from the Big Chair was, and still is, one of my most treasured albums, and one which appears totally timeless. I still can't figure out what most of the lyrics mean, but when the music and vocals are so strong it doesn't matter. We took our kids on holiday last year and only had two CDs in the car, one of them was this and they cannot get enough of it, too… so, I know after five years of trying, Tears for Fears are going to be something very special at Camp Bestival for all ages.”

They’re a band that helped define the sound of the 80s, and continue to blow crowds away with their hit-packed shows to this day, so who better to take on the cosmic Sunday headliner spot than the mighty Tears for Fears? From their breakthrough smash, Mad World and the all-conquering Songs from the Big Chair that gave us Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World, to the psychedelic pop of The Seeds of Love, Everybody Loves a Happy Ending and beyond, Tears For Fears’ Sunday night headline set is a solid gold promise of universal sing-along joy that can’t be missed.

Tears for Fears commented on their first UK festival appearance in 26 years: We are so looking forward to playing our first UK festival since our last one in 1990 at Knebworth. I know we're not the most prolific artists but we believe in quality over quantity. We're looking forward to performing new & old songs as we will have finished our new album before we perform. The fact that it's in the West Country where we began our journey makes it all the more gratifying. We look forward to seeing you at Camp Bestival”.

Yes friends it’s time to whizz off into orbit down at Lulworth Castle aka Spacecamp Dorset and explore the outer regions of our glorious galaxy, the stars, the planets, the moondust, the asteroids and the occasional scary black hole…and remember kids - Outer Space is the place!”

Exploring strange new worlds of music, theatre, shows, attractions, activities, poets, authors, talks and delicious, healthy food, we’re heading past the Karman Line out into the unknown on a cosmic adventure.
