The first names have been announced for Rob Da Bank’s new Bestival-affiliated festival, Common People, taking place in Southampton on 23rd-24th May.
De La Soul and Fatboy Slim lead the first wave of acts, with Clean Bandit and Slaves also scheduled in to play Common People’s inaugural year.
George the Poet, Plastic Mermaids, Band of Skulls, Jaguar Skills, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis and Craig Charles have also been confirmed.
Rob Da Bank had this to say about the new festival: “As with everything we do at Bestival HQ, we have really put our heart and soul into this show, from big headliners to very hot new talent and old faves, the music is so important, but equally the food, the cocktails, the layout of the show, the kids area, the sound and lights and the decor will be second to none. Thanks a mill to the council and good people of Southampton and the south coast for welcoming us over to the mainland! Viva Common People.”
