Escape with an eclectic mix of music
Common People Southampton is the south coast's edition of the popular music festival from Bestival founder Rob Da Bank.
The eclectic May weekender features a lineup that spans from mainstream dance through to hip-hop, indie, pop and more, as well as encompassing all other kinds of excitement and activities for festival-goers to get involved in.
2017's lineup included Pete Tong, Sean Paul and Tom Odell across two days on the lush parkland of Southampton Common, while the site was filled with quirky installations and hidden gems, from bouncy castles and hula hooping, to gigs inside a replica front room.
