Chuck Berry to headline Camp Bestival
Plus The Flaming Lips and many more
03 December 2007
The 81-year-old Johnny B Goode star will headline the Friday at the festival, while psychedelic puppet lovers The
Flaming Lips top Saturday's bill.
Other live acts confirmed for the Bestival spin-off include Suzanne Vega, Billy Bragg, Kid Creole & the Coconuts, The Cuban Brothers, Florence and The Machine, King Creosote, Ladyhawke, The Wurzels and Scroobius Pip.
DJs just announced for the new family-orientated event are Andy Weatherall, Kevin Rowland, Rob da Bank, Idjut Boys, Greg Wilson, Queens of Noize, Maurice Fulton, Mungos Hi Fi and Gregs Greats.
Camp Bestival takes place from 18-20 July at Lulworth Castle, Dorset, aiming to create a festival catering for fun loving families and chill seekers alike.
Head man Rob da Bank said: “I've been after the Lips since we started Bestival and for one reason or another (most seeming to involve childbirth!) I’ve never managed to book them. But now we couldn’t be more chuffed to have Wayne Coyne and his bunch of merry men headlining our new show Camp Bestival!”
Other attractions at the three-day festival will include Come Dancing lessons, the world’s first Knitting Tent, storytelling around campfires and performing Spoken Word on one of several open stages.
