Nile will perform with his band on the Saturday night, while Annie will close the event on the Sunday night.

Camp Bestival curators Josie and Rob da Bank said: “We’re really proud to unveil two of the world’s biggest party starters in their own fields - Nile and Chic go back a long way with us and they’re going to have everyone dancing at Lulworth Castle.

“Josie and I really do strive to make Camp Bestival not only the best family festival out there but also the ultimate way to kick off your summer holidays.

“This year we’ve got some whacking great headliners and loads of amazing family activities, we will be prioritising our teens to keep ’em happy with a new screen free area avoiding technology - The Wild Tribe. See you in the fields.”
