Young ones, old ones, wobbling in-between ones: all generations are well served by Bestival's sibling festival, a blissful boutique business offering plenty of kids' stuff (Erth's Dinosaur Zoo, Horrible Histories, Mr Tumble) and plenty to keep discerning parents quiet, too.

Richard Hawley spurned Glastonbury for being too corporate, so his acceptance of a headline slot in Dorset is a classy stamp of approval.

Others answering in the affirmative include Ash, I Am Kloot, Mark Owen, the Proclaimers, Labrinth and – proof, surely, that the Camp bridges generations like few others – pre-Britpop student favourites the Levellers.
