jim8track (Camp Bestival, 8track) provides the tracks that timeline popular music, while educator and activist Malcolm Richards speeds through the social and cultural impacts on us over the decades.  Our student-led sessions involve debate and discussion, and sometimes even our legendary impromptu jam sessions.

Email for information and availability.


At a festival session, we met Ben, who loved music but had never performed before. During our session, he performed for the first time.









A year later, after Camp Bestival 2017, he sent us this tweet and a link to his first single. We heard from Ben in early 2019 and he was making music like this.

We were  quite emotional about his feedback – and are very proud of his achievements.
