Camp Dalfest promo

Attention all parents with turbo tots! Randox Presents Camp Dalfest is back at Glenarm Castle on the 15th and 16th July with a diaper-filled spectacle that promises to leave visitors in stitches of laughter and oohs and ahhs.

Brace yourselves for the Diaper Derby as little speedsters will be put to the ultimate crawling challenge!


With star-studded headliners Sam Ryder, The Vamps, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Blue, Scouting for Girls and KT Tunstall taking to the main stage, it’s all about the babies stealing the show with the cutest and quickest crawlers set to race in a chaotic dash towards the finish line.

Alongside the main events on the weekend jam-packed with something for all the family, this highly anticipated competition has been introduced for the first time this year, with promises of laughter, adorable sights, and maybe even a few diaper changes along the way.


Only the crème de la crawl will emerge victorious, and the grand prize is absolutely worth the crawl-induced chaos. The winning turbo tot will be awarded an unforgettable family pass to this year's legendary Glenarm Castle Christmas Experience.


Hailed as Northern Ireland’s premium festivals for the whole family, this year’s Randox Presents Camp Dalfest will also include an outstanding kids’ mini festival of entertainment, including a TikTok Party, McDonald’s Fun Football, Gaming Grotto and the famous ‘Raver Tots’ with child-friendly music and dance. Plus, a special appearance from global YouTube sensation ‘Blippi’.


Whilst the international headline artists will make their stellar appearances, Randox Presents Camp Dalfest continues to set itself apart with numerous music stages, an exquisite array of local produce, food and drink, street food, craft stalls, festival markets, fun fairs, and prides itself on its unparalleled showcase of the very best of Northern Ireland talent who will also perform throughout the weekend.

Speaking about this year’s festival, organiser Nigel Campbell said:


“I can say this is our best roster of acts since the festival started which can be enjoyed by young and old. We pride ourselves in hosting a family focussed event and would like to encourage families to come along and enjoy a weekend break at this spectacular setting with lots to see and do for all the family, where the breath-taking scenery and open spaces complements this quality festival.”


To maintain a fair playing field, Randox Presents Camp Dalfest has one strict rule for the Diaper Derby competition: your child MUST only be able to CRAWL. Turbo tots trying to cheat by sneakily walking or wiggling their way to the finish line will be disqualified. Crawling prowess is the name of the game at Glenarm Castle this July. So, gear up your little speedsters and join Randox Presents Camp Dalfest for a day filled with laughs, cheers, and ridiculously adorable competition. Mark your calendars for the Diaper Derby—it's an event you won't want to miss!
