CAMP Bestival has announced Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada and Sophie Ellis-Bextor are among the headline acts announced for next year's event.

The festival will return next year to Lulworth Castle from Thursday, July 29 to Sunday, August 1 after it was cancelled this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite the ongoing pandemic, organisers said they were delighted to announce a spectacular comeback next year.

Co-curators Josie and Rob da Bank added they wanted Camp Bestival 2021 to be 'the best family festival you’ve ever witnessed'.

Vengaboys, Louise Redknapp, The Wurzles and Heather Small are among other musical acts lined up to perform at the movie-themed event, whilst children will be entertained by Dick and Dom, Sam & Mark, Mr Tumble and Mister Maker & Rebecca Keatley.

A standalone comedy tent will be set up in the castle grounds featuring Dom Joly and Irvine Welsh, whilst Fred Siriex, of Channel 4’s First Dates fame, will curate the festival’s food and drinks offering.

A new ‘clubby’ area for teenagers, a cinema and high wire will also feature for the first time.
