Camp Bestival Loves the 80s

Memories of vast amounts of hairspray on back combed hair.

Dancing in the bedroom trying not to make the needle jump on the latest Belinda Carlisle LP whilst lip synching into a can of Impulse.

Sneakily applying blue eyeshadow from your big sister's make up case.

Track bottoms and leg warmers.

Oh, those were the days.

Well the lovely folk over at Camp Bestival have just announced that the Eighties are making a return to Lulworth Castle. So dig out your spangly deely boppers and check out what the team have to say...

'We love the 80s at Camp Bestival HQ! Pac-man, deely boppers, odd coloured fluorescent socks, Knight Rider, break dancing, Sloane rangers, it really was an ace time, so for one weekend only we’re bringing 80s mania back. Turning Lulworth Castle into our own little time machine, we’re going to be celebrating one of the greatest decades in human history from August 1st-4th, with a glorious triumvirate of newly announced legends of the age and some proper down the disco type action from inimitable rogues The Cuban Brothers. And that’s not all as we have added even more mighty fine cutting edge live acts and DJs all for your delectation.'
Contemplating the merits of the mullet, Rob da Bank says: “As a child of the 80s I love that era. One hit wonders sit happily alongside some of the most visionary pop and electronic records ever made in my record collection. Heaven 17 fall into that latter category and still kill it wherever they go so I can’t wait to see and more importantly hear them at Camp Besti. The Proclaimers are an incredible festival act for a good old sing-along and Nik Kershaw is a boyhood idol too. Wrap it all up with Barry Peters and his Cuban Brother friends hosting an 80s night and it’s time for some serious leg warmers, rah rah skirts and fingerless lace glove action...well that’s what I’ll be wearing anyway!”
This is just a mere snippet of what Camp Bestival is offering ths year and if the eighties isn't your thing I can guarantee there will be something to please you on the line up.

Disclaimer: I have received a family ticket in return for a review of Camp Bestival 2013. As always I will give a fair and honest opinion.
