"I've heard amazing things about Camp Bestival and can't wait to head down to Lulworth Castle to join the party."

Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim said:

"This year at Camp Bestival will be special one for me as I am bringing my daughter for her first festival. Infantile grown ups, watch our children grow and glow as we attempt to teach them about the festi-love, dancing and laughter…"

Other artists appearing include the M People's Heather Small, Level 42, Reef and of course - Mr Tumble. 

Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank said:

"We can't think of a style of music that isn't on the bill this year - from rave to grime, classical to pop, guitars and reggae. 

"From the original party-starter Fatboy Sim and indie royalty Friendly Fires through pop stars Liam Payne and Becky Hill to Groove Armada and a special Sophie Ellis-Bextor show with Sink The Pink, not forgetting our new and breaking acts like Georgia, Biig Piig and Self Esteem. 

"It's not just about music - it's all going off from CBeebies to skate ramps, an outdoor cinema, tree climbing, Wild Tribe screen-free adventures into nature, yoga, meditation and explosive science shows! Get ready for Camp Bestival 2020!"
