Camp Bestival take Best Family Festival at UK Festival Awards

Camp Bestival is the third event to retain its UK Festival Awards title at the live ceremony tonight (Thursday) as they picked up Best Family Festival.

Following on from Camden Crawl’s victory in Best Metropolitan Festival and T In The Park in Best Toilets, the Rob da Bank-run event was voted Best Family Festival by fans.

Friendly Fires, Madness and George Clinton all performed at the event in the summer and there was plenty for children to get involved with as well included performances from TV star Mr Tumble.

Organisers will also have their eye on the Best Major award this evening with Bestival up against the likes of Glastonbury, Isle Of Wight Festival, Download, V Festival, Reading and Leeds and more.

Best Major, Best Medium-Sized and Best Small festival awards are to be announced later tonight (Thursday).

A full list of winners will appear on Virtual Festivals after the show.
