  • Sara Cox
  • Level 42
  • Fatboy Slim FT world debut DJ set with daughter Nelly Cook Aka Fatgirl Slim
  • Dick and Dom 
  • And a storytime special with Award Winning Kate Winslet

Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank say: 

"We can't all get outside right now, so we're bringing you some of our favourite Camp Bestival acts for a Stay At Home Easter Sleepover. 

"We both know what it's like to be cooped up with our darling children for weeks with no break, so we hope we can take your mind off the news and dive into a world of fun, music and family vibes. 

"Forget about home schooling for the weekend and join us for a one-off Easter extravaganza!"

They will be raising money for Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust and The Trussell Trust where virtual festival goers will be able to donate via online donation links throughout the takeover.

Despite being on lockdown the whole family will be able to get moving with a workout from Mr Motivator and Joy In Dace's Rise & Shine workout.

There will also be Yoga and meditation sessions, with an active storytelling session which includes Tai Chi. With lots of activities for children, a Mud pie workshop, an Aardman Model Making Workshop, circus skills, a Superhero Rescue Team and 'Silly Science Goes Experimental.'

Foodies will be able to enjoy a live lockdown cook-a-long with DJ BBQ and a live Q&A with Fred Sirieix from First Dates, chatting to Rob da Bank about road trips, lockdown with kids and to get your little ones to eat anything.

And we are being encouraged to get ready for the 'Stay at home Easter Festival' by setting up camps and dens in our front rooms with fancy dress.
