Organisers said:

"The sun has been beating down on the grounds of Lulworth Castle all week long and the Camp Bestival team are all set for an unforgettable fifth show this coming weekend. The stages are up and the site is looking mighty fine, so all we need is you and we can get the party started!"

Rob da Bank says:

"Well thanks to everyone who?s sold us out for the 5th year running. In a tricky year for festivals across the board we feel really lucky to have such a faithful crowd who keep coming back to Camp Bestival and obviously some newbies popping their Camp B cherries too. The site is looking fantastic and we've had loads of calls and emails from excited artists who can't wait to get down here too. Watch out for some of the new bits onsite from the Wall Of Death to Young British Foodies and an even more spectacular grand finale on Sunday night. See you here soon!"

Hot Chip are headlining on Friday, on Saturday acts like Kool & the Gang, Chic ft Nile Rodgers and the Earth Wind & Fire Experience ft Al Mckay will all be performing. The Happy Mondays and Jimmy Carr will be on stage on the Sunday.

Penned by the latest incarnation of Fat Les, redubbed Fit Les for the occasion. The performance will also feature renowned producer and musician Matt Eaton and Happy Monday's chanteuse Rowetta.
