Lining up alongside other south coast acts such as Wild Smiles, Pale Seas and Somahigh will be Portsmouth bands Rickyfitts and The Boy I Used to Be.

Common People founder Rob da Bank says: ‘Yup, we’ve got Fatboy and Grace Jones, and loads of new blood, like Years & Years and Slaves, but my eye is always firmly on the horizon, looking for the future of music no less!

‘I’m really pleased to have hooked up with the legendary Joiners in Southampton, and Pie and Vinyl in Portsmouth, to bring you some really incredible new acts.’

It takes place on Southampton Common on May 23 and 24. Day tickets cost £30, and £55 for the weekend.
