CAMP Bestival Dorset is underway.
The 15th edition of the festival, founded by DJ Rob da Bank, opened its gates on Thursday (July 27), with thousands expected at Lulworth Castle.
Fans are flocking to headliners Grace Jones, Craig David Presents TS5 and The Kooks, as well as scores of other acts across a variety of stages.
Before the event, Camp Bestival curators Rob and Josie da Bank, said: “Can you believe it? We’ve been 15 years down in Dorset and, as you know, we love any excuse for a party, but this is a good one.
“Not a bad age to reach in festival years and to be this old – or maybe this young – so we’re going all out with a major new stage and some ace talent additions.”
Below are some pictures from the first day of the festival:
