Camp Bestival announce comedy headliners

The family festival returns this year.

The organisers of Camp Bestival have confirmed this year’s comedy stage headliners.

Leading the announcement is the news that award-winning comedian and actor Omid Djalili will be bringing the laughs to the Dorset based festival this summer.

One of the UK’s best-loved comedians, Djalili joins the festival fresh off the back of his sold-out 2019 stand up tour. Many will also know the performer from appearances in recent hit films Mamma Mia 2 and The Infidel.

Joining Omid over the weekend will be funny-man Boothby Graffoe and Andre Vincent taking on MC duties. The pair will be bringing family-friendly comedy suitable for all to the festival.

Omid Djalili, Boothby Graffoe and Andre Vincent have joined an already jam-packed line-up.

Nile Rodgers & Chic and BBC Radio 1 legend Annie Mac have been announced as Saturday and Sunday superhero headliners, as well as pop duo and YouTube stars Max & Harvey, who’ll perform a live set and Q&A on the Castle Stage.

Jess Glynne and The Human League have been announced as this year’s Castle Stage headliners. Additional artists performing at the festival include Sister Sledge, The Wailers, Big Shaq, Sara Cox, Goldie, Vengaboys, Ash, David Rodigan, Greg Wilson, Melanie C’s 90s Mixtape, Rak-Su, Morcheeba, and many more.

There will also be a host of family shows, kid entertainment, comedy, wellness and fitness, as well as food and drink from the likes of DJ BBQ’s World of Meats and Beats, Avant Garde Vegan, The Feast Collective and more.

The festival takes place from 25 – 28 July 2019 at Lulworth Castle, Dorset.

 

“Step up the brave and the perilous, courageous and noble, those with superhuman powers or those powering everyday heroic deeds, Camp Bestival is back with a bang and we’re over-the-moon to announce our return with the best and biggest line-up to date in 2019,” organiser Rob da Bank says. “Expect magical mania, brimmed with momentous music, phenomenal feast-worthy food and exciting experiences suited for everyone, whether you’re aged 8 or 80!”

Camp Bestival will be celebrating Heroes vs. Superheroes this summer, and includes the brand new Wild Tribe area designed to encourage screen-free time. The line-up features bushcraft, wild adventures, mudslides, drumming circles and more.

The theme celebrates all kind of heroes who are doing things for the greater good of the human race – whether they be superheroes like Batman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman or real-life heroes such as NHS nurses, firefighters, Malala Yousafzai or David Attenborough.
