With Jess Glynne and Fatboy Slim already announced as Friday and Saturday night headliners, not forgetting Dick and Dom, Mr Tumble andAliens Love Underpants, excitement is already reaching fever pitch at Camp Bestival mission control! And now we’re ready to hit escape velocity on our way to Outer Space with the announcement of Sunday night headliners who will be wowing the crowds this coming 28-31 July at Lulworth Castle in Dorset. Tickets are flying out at warp speed, so get in there while you still can!
Rob da Bank says: “Songs from the Big Chair was, and still is, one of my most treasured albums, and one which appears totally timeless. I still can’t figure out what most of the lyrics mean, but when the music and vocals are so strong it doesn’t matter. We took our kids on holiday last year and only had two CDs in the car, one of them was this and they cannot get enough of it, too… so, I know after five years of trying, Tears for Fears are going to be something very special at Camp Bestival for all ages.”
They’re a band that helped define the sound of the 80s, and continue to blow crowds away with their hit-packed shows to this day, so who better to take on the cosmic Sunday headliner spot than the mighty Tears for Fears? From their breakthrough smash, Mad World and the all-conquering Songs from the Big Chair that gave us Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World, to the psychedelic pop of The Seeds of Love, Everybody Loves a Happy Ending and beyond, Tears For Fears’ Sunday night headline set is a solid gold promise of universal sing-along joy that can’t be missed.
Tears for Fears commented on their first UK festival appearance in 26 years: We are so looking forward to playing our first UK festival since our last one in 1990 at Knebworth. I know we’re not the most prolific artists but we believe in quality over quantity. We’re looking forward to performing new & old songs as we will have finished our new album before we perform. The fact that it’s in the West Country where we began our journey makes it all the more gratifying. We look forward to seeing you at Camp Bestival”.
