Grace Jones to headline Southamptons Common People

Bringing untold sophistication to Common People’s debut outing, our Sunday night headliner will be the incomparable Grace Jones. A true force of nature, and the consummate pop star, Grace Jones is nothing short of a dazzling live spectacle! The perfect bill-topper for a grand day out from the Bestival team, Grace mixes high art and a deep sense of theatricality with balls-out, booty shaking grooves. Her most recent album, 2008s Hurricane was a timely reminder that she’s still a player, and with last year’s Nightclubbing reissue and a new album imminent, Grace Jones’ effortless panache will be totally unmissbale.

Also adding their own inimitable charms to Common People’s Sunday line-up will be Years & Years. Winners of the BBC Sound of 2015, and firmly fixed at the top of countless tastemakers’ tip lists, the London trio are just about the hottest band on the planet right now, so it’s an honour to have them playing the main stage at our inaugural show.

Answering our all-inclusive clarion call, Common People will also have DJ sets from Secondcity, whose I Wanna Feel topped the charts last year, on Sunday, Serge Santiago and Firas Waez in their chart bothering Waze & Odyssey guise on Saturday in the Big Top, and My Love is Underground founder Jeremy Underground, also on Saturday. We’ll also have a host of delicious street foods, incredible cocktails, craft beers, and out of this world attractions throughout the weekend, so make sure you grab your tickets now and join us for bank holiday treats this23rd & 24th May.
