Although Camp Bestival will return next year, the status of Bestival itself is yet to be confirmed.

In September, it was reported that administrators would appointed to Bestival Group, Bestival Ltd, and Camp Bestival, after loans tycoon James Benamor filed the administration notices at the High Court. According to filings at Companies House, Richmond Group Debt Capital – privately owned by Benamor – extended a loan of up to £1.6m to the festival back in February of last year. Now, Richmond are looking to take over the brand.

“Richmond Group has today made an offer of £1.1m to purchase the brand and assets of Bestival Group, with the intention of running the successful Camp Bestival going forward,” a spokesman has told NME. “Under this offer, all Camp Bestival 2019 tickets sold so far will be honoured.”
