The Human League and Primal Scream are among the headliners for Camp Bestival’s much-anticipated return to Shropshire. Bringing together an incredible weekend of live music across multiple stages, the event is set to return to the midlands in August 2023.
Camp Bestival 2023 will be held at Shropshire’s Weston Park, running from Thursday August 17 to Sunday August 20. The family-friendly festival will host a range of artists including drum n bass veterans Rudimental and synth-pop singalong legends The Human League.
Camp Bestival Shropshire is the sister show to the long-standing festival based in Dorset. Due to the success of the original event, the organisers decided to branch out and give the festival a second home.
Announcing the 2023 line-up Camp Bestival bosses Josie and Rob da Bank said: "Well, we only went and started a new festival didn’t we? We couldn’t have been happier with the site, the weather, the crowd, and the vibes.
“Oh yeah and paddle boarding round a beautiful lake with our kids! A dream! So, we’re back for 2023 hoping to ramp up the levels even more from introducing a brand-new Camp fancy dress parade, raft building and loads of cool new little pop ups to mega pop stars and indie giants on the main stage. See you in the garden at Weston Park in August!”
New to the Shropshire jamboree is the theme-free Big Camp Fancy Dress Parade which encourages festival goers to get creative on the costume front or head to the Dressing Up tent if you prefer to pack light.
