Well, what can we say? Camp Bestival 2013 was another utterly awesome festi-holiday frolic. We had four days of sunshine and fun with awe-inspiring sets from Richard Hawley, Levellers, Labrinth, Grandmaster Flash, Introducing’s Daft Punk extravaganza, Sasha, Gabrielle Aplin’s secret gig, David Rodigan’s Ram Jam, DJ Yoda, The Cuban Brothers and more, the crowds were singing and dancing all weekend long. And with another legendary performance from Mr Tumble, japes aplenty from Dick n Dom, Disney World Record attempts, Horrible Histories, the utterly stunning Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, the kids were knocked off their feet! And that’s not to mention a whole list of highlights like the Black Eagles Circus, The Young British Foodies, Jo Whiley, Charlie Brooksinterviewed by Sara Cox, the Story Den in the Dingly Dell, the Freesports Park, Dance Space and Art Town, theSoul Park and so much other amazing stuff, we packed in more than ever this year and had such a brilliant time. We hope you did too!
