Festival organizers of the Camp Bestival say it is expected to continue as planned this summer.
If Covid is under control in accordance with the government’s plan, limits on social contact in England could be gone by 21 June.
Countdown Has Begunt
Camp Bestival manager Rob da Bank said he was “counting down” the minutes, hours and days for the event in Dorset.
The organizers of the Reading and Leeds Festival said on Wednesday they were “very confident” about hosting their events.
The four-day Camp Bestival is expected to take place at Lulworth Castle from July 29 to August 1.
Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, Friendly Fires, and Sophie Ellis-Bextor – as well as Mr. Tumble’s favorite kids – are among the acts to be seen.
Rob da Bank said: “There is literally nothing [my wife] Josie and I like more in life than standing in a field surrounded by family and friends, dressed in daft outfits dancing to amazing bands and DJs and Mr Tumble.
“That’s exactly what we plan to be doing at Camp Bestival.”
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has launched a new four-step plan to reduce the closure of England on Monday.
The fourth step from June 21 will probably see all legal restrictions on public distancing removed, if conditions are met.
Like all other festivals in 2020 – last year’s event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Camp Bestival, a family-friendly event, has previously been held annually at Lulworth Estate since 2008.
