This recent incident proves that it's not always the facial expression or action that can become fodder for memes on the internet, but even a name can grab all the attention and turn into a viral fest.
For the unversed, the Camp Bestival has been conducted annually on the Lulworth Estate since the year 2008. Last year due to the pandemic, the Bestival was cancelled. But in 2021, it was the biggest event after lockdown restrictions were relaxed in the country, as per BBC. The Camp Bestival was held on the scheduled festival dates of 29 July to 1 August.
