BRITAIN BEST EVENTS 2019: Camp Bestival

WHERE: Lulworth Castle, East Lulworth, BH20 5QS, United Kingdom

WHEN: 25-28 July 2019

Camp Bestival is the UK's perfect family festival, each summer lining up a weekend of music, fun and games, since its inception over ten years ago (way back in 2008). The theme for 2019's festival is Heroes Vs. Superheroes, and according to founder Rob Da Bank, it's time for "the brave and the perilous, courageous and noble, those with superhuman powers or those simply performing an everyday heroic deed" to step up. This year's headliners include Jess Glynne, Sister Sledge and The Human League. Check out the full lineup below.

This incredible achievement is thanks to the huge, diverse programme it lays on each year, including music, comedy, theatre, spoken word, arts and crafts, science shows and circus workshops.
