With the gates thrown open to this years Common People festival in Southampton Rob da Bank is quietly confident that we are in for the best yet. One thing that Rob, Josie and the Bestival team manages to alway keep is that close and personal feeling.
Like you have been invited to a private party in their back garden. Year on year the festival grows but doesn’t lose the personal touch put in by all of those behind the scene. Jointing the line up for the weekend is The Jacksons, Lily Allen, James, Sparks, All Saints and many more. Musically the bill is more diverse than ever with a disco-themed fun on Sunday topped by The Jacksons and Prince’s former backing band, the New Power Generation, who will play in the shadow of the world’s largest disco ball which will be suspended over the park and the planet's largest bouncy castle! This year organisers have gone for a much more family-friendly angleIt has always been great for kids. Have you made it into our gallery.
