|Lifestyle Blogger at WitWitWoo, Kate Sutton, is excited to introduce Rob da Bank’s Music Club, which is coming to Camp Bestival for the first time.
The first thing I did when finding out I was going to Camp Bestival again this year, was to look at the line-up of things for kids to do because we all know that if the kids are happy, the parents are happy. (Or is it the other way round?) Children are so well catered for at Camp Bestival, no matter what age, and it creates a really laid back, fun environment for the whole family.
One of the first things that caught my eye was Rob da Bank’s Music Club.
The Bestival Foundation has been running Rob da Bank’s Music Club in partnership with the Isle of Wight Youth Trust for over six months now on the Isle of Wight. It’s somewhere for 14 – 18 year olds to go to after school to hang out, be inspired, entertained and learn the occasional thing along the way. And it proved so popular, it’s coming to Camp Bestival!
Situated next to the Sports Park, The Rob da Bank’s Music Club Tent will be offering workshops and demos, not only from the lovely volunteers, but also from a host of celebrity DJs and Band members – how cool is that?! Imagine the bragging rights the kids will have when they go back to school ... plus the kudos of being Best Mum Ever. Well, we can but hope.
The club is open from 10am til 10pm and there will be plenty of kit to try out – from electric drum kits to decks and instruments, music production equipment and even street dancing and singing and jamming sessions.
My eight year old son, Dexter, would love it but unfortunately he’s too young to join in this year – but bearing in mind he’s happy to street dance in the middle of the supermarket, I don’t think it will stop him from randomly busting out his best street dance moves wherever we are. As for my eldest son who’s seventeen, having DJ’ed before, I think this will be right up his street.
There are workshops and jamming sessions with a proper PA, Decks, Music Production Studio, Live Audio Visual, Photography, Projections, Bass, Guitar, Drums, Singing, Street Dance, Radio Broadcast Techniques, Turntablism, Scratching and Lyric and Rap workshops.
If I could pass for eighteen (not very likely, granted,) I quite fancy attending a Rap workshop myself. Yet another awesome way to embarrass the kids!
