Richard Hawley, The Levellers and Labrinth will headline this year's Camp Bestival in Dorset.

The festival will take place in the grounds of Lulworth Castle from August 1 to August 4 - and will also feature comedy from Alan Davies and performances from Billy Bragg, I Am Kloot and The Wurzels.

The event is curated by BBC Radio One's Rob da Bank, who will also headline with a DJ set.

The quirky festival is in it's sixth year, and 2013's special theme is 'Around the World' - bringing an eclectic mix of performers to Dorset.

Rob da Bank said: "Music-wise people are always asking for more guitars so we have Richard Hawley, Levellers and Billy Bragg, pop and dance is represented by heavyweights Labrinth and DJ Fresh and we're mega chuffed rising stars Gabrielle Aplin and Tom Odell have chosen to come to the Camp.

"Throw in some legends like Toots And The Maytals, Musical Youth and Kid Creole and we're pretty confident everyone will be dancing on the grass.

"Camp Bestival is about so much more than the Main Stage and we are really pleased to welcome Mr Tumble back as well as a festival exclusive from Horrible Histories and Erth's Dinosaur Zoo, whilst top comedian Alan Davies is joining us for the first time.

"Our theme for 2013 - Around the World - is a truly global, magical mystery tour of faraway lands from Indian circuses to Italian pop-up restaurants and Belgian ska bands."

Also taking to the stage at Camp Bestival will be The Cuban Brothers, The Farm and The Polyphonc Spree - who will perform The Rocky Horror Show.

"Beware all children - heads are going to roll" said the Horrible Histories team.

"We can't wait to come to loathsome Lulworth when you'll find out just what a gruesome bunch us Barmy Brits can be."

There will also be over 100 free things for children to take part in - including workshops, art and special shows.
