CAMP Bestival has announced their annual Camp Bestival Band and DJ Competition is now open for applications from bands and DJs of all ages.

The Dorset music festival has once again teamed up with Bournemouth’s We Broke Free for their search for the county's most exciting emerging acts to perform at this year’s movie themed event.

The winner of each category will get the chance to play at Camp Bestival 2020, providing the perfect chance to kick off a music career at the family festival as well as the opportunity to play alongside acts including Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada and Liam Payne.

Camp Bestival’s co-curator Rob da Bank said: “I love hearing what the beautiful county of Dorset have come up with each year, with so many exciting new bands across so many different genres and some superb DJs too.”

This competition is free and open to all ages, with the closing date for entries on Thursday March 26.

Finalists will be announced on Friday April 3, before the competition’s final at 60 Million Postcards in Bournemouth on Saturday April 25, which is free to the public.
