PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 CULTURE RESOURCE

Review: Common People 2015

COMMON PEOPLE FESTIVAL SUCCESS

This year’s Common People Festival was nothing but a huge success! Thousands of people gathered on Southampton Common to enjoy live music, fun activities and a stream of fantastic entertainment and a stunning atmosphere.

The festival was hosted by the multi-award winning Bestival team over the recent bank holiday weekend and attracted festival goers from far and wide.

The metropolitan festival was by no means only about music despite hosting the likes of Bank of SkullsFat Boy Slim, Grace Jones, De La Soul and Jaguar Skills. It was put together by a hugely creative team. A group of individuals who transformed the common into a wonderland of eye-popping attractions and fun fuelled escapism.

An electrifying collaboration of cultural highs including arts, music and food brought crowds together to enjoy an all inclusive fun packed weekend. The festival really brought people together and really unified them, like any good festival should. It invited all ages of people and was extremely family friendly and accessible.

The stages were packed with line up’s that wowed the crowds and headliners rocked evening sets to end the non-camping event on high. In true Bestival style fireworks were set off to finish the evening and were nothing but spectacular.

An electrifying collaboration of cultural highs including arts, music and food bought crowds together to enjoy an all inclusive fun packed weekend.

We cannot wait for next year Common People!
