Now comedians Jack Whitehall, Milton Jones and Marcus Brigstocke will appear as well with Andrew Maxwell, Craig Campbell, Barry Castagnola, Seann Walsh, Robin Ince, Andre Vincent and the Comedy Club 4 Kids who will be tickling ribs over the weekend.
Organisers have also confirmed that Shrek The Musical will be stopping at the event.
Speaking about the news, organiser Rob da Bank said: “Another ludicrously varied and tasty announcement to get your teeth into...literally, as we announce some of the hottest chefs and festival food coming to Camp Bestival plus a mega comedy line-up headed up by Jack Whitehall.
“Easy Star All Stars are one of my favourite festival acts with their reggae versions of Radiohead and Pink Floyd and will be joining us at Camp and perhaps most excitingly for the young at heart Shrek is comin’ to Dorset. Yee-haa!”
For all the foodies out there, Gizzi’s Tiki Tea Love Lounge will be setting up stall along with Kerstin Rodgers – The Underground Restaurant.
Children will also have the chance to design their very own Medieval cake and “cake-maker to the stars”, Lily Vanilli, will transform the winning idea into a giant, spectacular cake.
Everyone who enters a drawing of their design into the competition will be invited to a special tea party on Sunday afternoon where the cake masterpiece will be revealed and they’ll get to try a slice!
Cake designs, along with your full contact details so we can invite you to the party, should be sent to the Bestival Office - Address: Lily Vanilli Cake Competition, Camp Bestival, 25 Denmark Street, London, WC2H 8NJ.
