What becomes of the maturing raver, children in tow and the knees no longer fit to dance for three days solid on a diet of two soggy noodles?
Both beats- and family-friendly, the blissful Camp Bestival might just be the answer. Kicking off in time for the summer holidays, the little sister of Rob da Bank's much-loved Bestival is offering The Gruffalo, Shrek the Musical and Mr Tumble for kids.
In a similar but scarier vein, it's got Happy Mondays for grown-ups, with their own Mr Tumble in tow: Mr Bez. Hot Chip will please those who prefer a sweeter class of beats than the old nosebleed techno; vintage disco grooves come from Chic and Kool and the Gang; Adam Ant proves age is no barrier to rock'n'roll; and Little Dragon, King Creosote and Jon Hopkins, and Frankie Rose all provide choice trimmings.
Consider it the best(ival) of both worlds: classy enough for kids and fun enough for grown-ups who aren't anyway near retiring from the festival frolics of old.
