Camp Bestival announces first wave of acts. With Richard Hawley, Levellers and Labrinth set to headline the festival. The pick of this announcement would appear to be the Polyphonic Spree playing a 'Rocky Horror show' set, an idea which clearly encapsulates the idea of 'festival fun'.

Other favourite's of ours include: John Cooper Clarke, I am Kloot, Toots and the Maytals, Billy Bragg, Dan le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip and The Cuban Brothers. Alongside live sets from the equally hyped and promising bands, London Grammar and The 1975.

We think this all sounds pretty good but see for yourself!

Here is an enthusiastic quote from festival curator Rob Da Bank about the event:

"Hip-hip hooray! Here we are reaching our 6th birthday. Crack out the jelly and ice cream, unroll the Twister board and cover me in sticky pop if I’m not more excited than ever to be announcing our all ages extravaganza once more. As ever it’s a veritable smorgasbord of talent. Music-wise people are always asking for more guitars so we have Richard Hawley, Levellers and Billy Bragg, pop and dance is represented by heavyweights Labrinth and DJ Fresh and we're mega chuffed rising stars Gabrielle Aplin and Tom Odell have chosen to come to the Camp. Throw in some legends like Toots and The Maytals, Musical Youth and Kid Creole and we're pretty confident everyone will be dancing on the grass!

Camp Bestival is about so much more than the main stage and we are really pleased to welcome Mr Tumble back as well as a festival exclusive from Horrible Histories and Erth’s Dinosaur Zoo, whilst top comedian Alan Davies is joining us for the first time.

Our theme for 2013 Around The World is a truly global, magical mystery tour of faraway lands from Indian circuses to Italian pop-up restaurants and Belgian ska bands. Roll up roll up for the Greatest Show On Earth!"
