Common People is a brand new two-day metropolitan adventure, set in the leafy, green surrounds of Southampton Common. Put together with love by the acclaimed Bestival family, there will be lashings of the team’s unique magic, mayhem and merriment unifying party lovers across the south coast and beyond, for a truck load of bank holiday high jinx on May 23 & 24. Headlining the very first Common People festival are Grace Jones, Fatboy Slim and De La Soul, and you could be there too, as we're giving away five pairs of tickets to the weekend event.
Common People curator Rob da Bank commented: 'I’m delighted to announce that we are launching a new festival in Southampton, our first new venture since we started Camp Bestival seven years ago. We have been inundated with offers to start new festivals every year but it wasn’t until we found the beautiful site of the Common that we felt it was right to start a new chapter in Bestival’s history.'
Other brilliant acts on the bill include Clean Bandit, Band of Skulls, Years & Years, Jaguar Skills, DJ Yoda, George the Poet, Plastic Mermaids, Funky Little Choir, Craig Charles, The Cuban Brothers, Slaves, Wayze & Odyssey, Derrick Carter and many more.
