#CampBestival 2017: Next Year’s Theme, and My Costume Picks

It’s been a few months now since the heady, hot days of fun we had as a family at this year’s Space Themed Camp Bestival (and you can still read our write up here) , and this week saw the announcement of next year’s theme.

I do love the thought that goes into each and every detail of Camp Bestival, so I’m sure lots of time was spent by Rob, Josie and the team picking through the countless suggestions and possibles.

Next year is, of course, Camp Bestival’s Tenth Birthday celebration, so I think there is even more to come from the team behind the multi award winning festival.

So, if you’ve yet to find out the theme, it’s

POPSTARS AND ROCKSTARS!!!

Ohhhh the possibilities people, the possibilities are endless for next year!

First up, there are so many decades to choose from, do you go as a 50’s Rockabilly, or a 60’s Psychedelic Prog Rocker? How about a 70’s Disco Diva, or an 80’s New Romantic? And what about punks?

Blimey, even Elvis offers several different varieties to himself, as do the Beatles!

Mini has already decided she’s going to pay homage to Perrie of Little Mix fame in a cartoon dress (I did try and persuade her to go as Amy Winehouse but she wasn’t having any of it). Littlest wants to go as either Lukas Graham or David Bowie (I’m hoping he goes more for Bowie), and I’m feeling an 80’s Madonna during the Material Girl era.

As for Elder, he’s considering going as Mama Cass from the Mama’s and Pappa’s.           Yes, really.

There are so many different rock and pop celebs past and present to go for, there are sure to be countless incarnations of Freddie Mercury, Kylie Minogue, Prince, Michael Jackson, Bowie and Adam Ant amongst others.

In tribute, Lunchtime Live will be having a Camp Bestival special show on Wednesday from 12-2pm UK time. The music will be some of my top picks from past Camp Bestivals, and our topic is “what would YOU choose for the theme?” I also would love your fave Camp Bestival memories to read out too!

You can listen live over on Radioactive FM UK or tune in again over on my Hear This page.

What do you think of the theme? Are you coming along? Who would you love to see play next year?
