Fancy dress theme and more comedy for Camp Bestival

Bands set for Camp Bestival, like Friendly Fires, Madness and The Human League, have found out this morning (Tuesday) that they will be greeted by revellers dressed up from Fairy Tales.

Organisers have revealed the fancy dress theme for 2010, so expect plenty of Cinderella, Dick Whittington and Little Red Riding Hood characters over the weekend.

Speaking about the choice, organiser Rob da Bank said: "People power is our number one message at the Bestivals this year from the bands people keep asking for to the fancy dress theme for Camp Besti being voted for on our forum. Fairy Tales is an ace idea and I can't wait to scare the kids as Rumpelstiltskin da Bank."

The festival has also revealed a number of comedians set to have fans chuckling at the Jestival stage. Tim Minchin, Rufus Hound and Carl Donelly will be tickling ribs alongside Craig Campbell, Papa CJ, Mitch Benn and Rob Rouse.

Matt Kirshen, Pete Cain and Teirnan Douieb will also be performing along with Tiffany Stevenson and Tim Fitzhingham.

DJ Yoda, Calvin Harris, Chipmunk and The Fall are among the musical delights set to perform over the weekend alongside Mr Scruff, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and many more.
