Backstage Camping

  • Belles-at-sgp

2018 Backstage Camping tickets are available as upgrade tickets. These will only be valid for festival entry along with a standard weekend festival ticket.

We are absolutely delighted to announce Bestival Backstage Camping packages for 2018. Located in the festival’s exclusive backstage area, directly behind the Main Stage, this premium campsite offers Backstage Camping ticketholders prime, spacious camping ground in which to pitch their own tents. With access to a host of exceptional facilities, including clean, flushing toilets, hot showers and a dedicated car park included in the price. Bestival Backstage Camping adds comfort and style to the festival experience, so you can concentrate on having the time of your lives.

2018 brings new improved walking routes giving you swift, easy access to the heart of the entertainment in the Castle Field, meaning you’ll never miss your favourite main stage acts! There’s also a new backstage bar and chill out area, as well as premium food traders and a coffee stand just a stone throws walk away in the campsite.

Backstage Camping includes entry to one of Bestival’s most exclusive areas, The Lucky Cat, which sits stage right in the main arena giving you spacious seating and prime views of your favourite acts while you enjoy delicious drinks, a fine cocktail menu and premium food late into the night. We will also be hosting a Thursday night party exclusively for Backstage and Hospitality Campsite guests!

NEW! BOXPUB – BACKSTAGE BAR & HANGOUT
The Boxpub is one of our favourite additions to the backstage areas this year! A one of a kind old school boozer in a horsebox, situated under a 12×15m stretch tent to protect you from the elements. Boxpub provides you with a meeting point and hang out spot for those wanting a pre-drink before heading out to see the rest of the action.

NEW! SEATING BOOTHS & TABLE SERVICE
(SO NEW, THEY AREN’T FINISHED YET – PICTURES COMING SOON)!

In addition to Backstage Camping, campers can hire seating booths with table service within The Lucky Cat this year. We have 6x seating booths available to hire that can accommodate up to 10 people each. The booths are decorated in a vintage style complete with cushions and a roof to protect you from the elements (we can predict a good time, but we can’t predict the weather)! Inspired by dreams of a Moroccan-style beach escape, the seating booths have been designed and built by our in-house team. A booth is exclusive to your party for the time it is booked and will include table service and 2 bottles of champagne and a selection of beers and soft drinks that will be waiting for you on arrival. Booths can be booked for half a day (12pm – 5.30pm OR 6pm – 11pm) or a full day. Drinks packages are available to purchase alongside your booth booking.

Please contact backstage@bestival.net for more information and to book!
