Bestival announce new festival Common People

Bestival founder Rob Da Bank has announced that he is planning a new festival for the coming summer.

The new "metropolitan' event Common People is set to take place in the city of Southampton from the 23rd-24th May on Southampton Common.

In a statement about the new festival, Rob Da Bank explained, “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”

So far, no acts have been announced for the event but you can stay up-to-date with developments at commonpeople.net
