AN OUT of this world festival experience is on the cards next year in Dorset.

Camp Bestival, returning to Lulworth Castle from July 25 to July 28, has announced an ‘Intergalactic, Aliens and Space’ theme for 2024.

The family festival will offer four days of family fun. 

Including aliens, astronauts, planets and stars, the ‘Intergalactic, Aliens and Space’ theme will transform the grounds of Lulworth Castle into an 'other-worldly cosmos', organisers say.

Taking inspiration from the galaxy and beyond, families are encouraged to embrace the theme in their masses on the Saturday with their own fancy dress as the festival takes off on a cosmic adventure and spacewalks into another epic year of memory making, fun and exploration!

Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank said: “When Josie and I wrack our increasingly small but colourful brains for theme ideas we always manage to throw in some cosmic goodness whatever the final outcome.

"So, this year we’ve gone full tilt in our imaginary da Bank family rocket to a wonderful intergalactic universe of aliens and all things space… so set your galactic sat nav to another space and time and explode your imaginations with all things out of this world.

"We’ll be creating amazing free things to do onsite to reflect that from science and robots to UFOs, other lifeforms and star gazing. This will be our best year yet and it’s all out there just waiting for you”

Following tradition at Camp Bestival, there will be a mega fancy dress competition on Saturday, July 27 where one lucky family will win tickets to Camp Bestival 2025.

Camp Bestival Dorset will welcome another glittering line-up of stars to the fields for 2024 as the full host of incredible acts will be announced in the coming months.

Across the festival site there will also be a plethora of free activities programmed around the theme.

Camp Bestival is said to be the ultimate ‘Festi-holiday’ jam packed with entertainment and cultural delights.

The whole family can get lost in theatre, shows, wellbeing workshops, circus spectacles, sideshow commotions, comedy, enjoy delicious food and drink and spacious general camping, Camping Plus and Backstage Camping, through to decadent boutique offerings, campervans, caravans and beyond.

Camp Bestival Dorset takes place July 25 to July 28 at Lulworth Castle. For more information and tickets for both sites visit
