Camp Bestival has announced sporting-themed additions to its 2012 line-up, including the screening of the Olympics' opening ceremony and a host of Silly Sportsday events. 

Camp Bestival co-organiser, Rob Da Bank said: "Team Camp Bestival are mega-excited that the Olympic Games decided to open on the same day as Camp Bestival! We're rather flattered and are currently pumping some serious iron at Camp HQ in preparation.

Whilst we'd rather be in a field having fun with our families than sat at home watching TV, we also know that many people like watching the opening ceremony so we have decided to show it big screen style for anyone who’s up for it." 

All the Olympics action will be screened over the course of the Camp Bestival weekend for any super-keen sports fans. 

Lost & Found will be hosting all the Silly Sportsday frivolities. Track events will include: No Sense of Direction Running, Animal Relay and Chariots of Fire SlowMo race, while in the field, events such as Jaffa-Lin throwing and Gurny Shot Put should give you an idea of the seriousness of the action. 

The entertainment line-up for Camp Bestival 2012 includes: Kool & the Gang, Happy Mondays, Hot Chip, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, Mr. Tumble, The Gruffalo, Shrek and Jimmy Carr.

Camp Bestival 2012 takes place at Lulworth Castle, Dorset on 26th - 29th July 2012.
