Camp Bestival have come up with a unique way of unveiling their first acts, with Peggy from Hi De Hi unveiling them online from 10am tomorrow (Thursday 5 February).

But as a taster, we've got the video teaser, which includes the star of the 70's sitcom telling fans about the impending line-up announcement.

Camp Bestival 2009 will take place at Lulworth Castle, Dorset from 24-26 July.

The festival, now in its second year, is a twist on the holiday camps of yesteryear and it even has its own Hi De Hi style bluecoats with Miguel Cuban Brother in charge.

The family-friendly event which was described as "perfect" by last year's headliners The Flaming Lips is set to have much more for all ages including a Bollywood arena, rock n roll tent, comedy, spoken word, theatre in the woods, films projected onto the castle walls and a real animal farm.

Check back tomorrow for the Camp Bestival line-up.
