Common People returns to Oxford and Southampton
Common People returns to Oxford and Southampton
| Latest News

Common People will return on two fronts again this year, with the twin metropolitan festivals in Southampton and Oxford running on Saturday 27th May. Both held at lovely open locations within the city, at Southampton Common and Oxford’s South Park, the events will welcome a plethora of attractions aimed at providing for the whole family.

Both of the Common People festivals benefit from the diverse music policy of parent event Bestival, whose organisers are behind the still relatively new Common People brand. Sean Paul will headline Oxford on Saturday and Southampton on Sunday, with Pete Tong performing Ibiza Classics alongside The Heritage Orchestra on the reverse dates. Other impressive sets will include Groove Armada, Saint Etienne, Novelist and Rag’n’Bone Man, with Wild Beasts and Foals also teaming up for a unique DJ set. Becky Hill, The Cuban Brothers and Elvana - a Nirvana cover band fronted by an Elvis impersonator - are also set to play, as are DJs like Joy Orbison, Redlight, Goldie, Midland and Kornel Kovacs.

Tickets are now on sale for the two events, which kick off at 10:30am and run through to 11:30pm.
