Common People FestivalRob Da Bank is bringing the spirit of Bestival back to Southampton with the return of the Common People Festival for 2016!

Common People Festival

There’s no better way to spend your bank holiday weekend than with fantastic music, awesome people and more great food and drink than you can imagine! If it sounds like your ideal event then head on down to Southampton Common on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. Common People Festival is a great family event so get the whole gang together and introduce them to some music worth talking to their friends about.

Headlines for 2016 are definitely going to draw huge crowds so make sure you snap up your tickets fast! Saturday will see Craig David’s TS5, Public Enemy and Primal Scream hit the main stage. Sunday’s special guests will be 80’s legends Duran Duran who will be joined by Katy B, Chas & Dave and Mr Motivator! There will be a huge variety of DJ’s and up and coming acts to watch out for too as The Joiners present ‘Uncommon Stage’ for 2016.

What You Need To Know

Common People Festival is not a camping event as it is held on a city park and will close each night at 11pm so if you’re heading down be sure to sort accommodation in advance. Ticket and accommodation packages are available through the website. There will be plenty of local transport to and from the event all day long so don’t worry yourself about driving and parking, let the park and ride take care of all that!

If you’re heading down to Common People Festival, don’t forget to pop in to our Southampton store on Queens Way for face paints and glow sticks to keep the party going all night! If the weather turns we even have funky rain ponchos in loads of designs like leopards, ducks or even flowers!
