The Bestival team have announced a new festival called Common People.
Taking place on the Bank Holiday weekend of 23rd and 24th May, and set on Southampton Common, Common People will be a glorious two-day metropolitan festival, bringing the blithe spirit of Bestival right to the heart of the city.
Common People’s music line-up will be a feast of the finest that the live music and DJ scenes have to offer, from legendary stalwarts of the festival scene and guaranteed crowd pleasers, to the most exciting new acts that are getting those in the know all hot under the collar, you can expect nothing less than the very best to bring together everyone in a party of unanimous joy.
Common People curator Rob da Bank commented: “I’m delighted to announce that we are launching a new festival in Southampton next year, 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. This isn’t a camping show, it’s not a tents, wellies and car packed to the rafters experience… it’s a metropolitan two day show easy to access and open to all ages, compact but packed with experiences and priced very, very reasonably. We can’t wait to unveil our headliners and star cast for our first Common People show in May. Watch this space”
Common People’s full line-up will be announced in the New Year, so watch commonpeople.net for more info.
