HOLD on to your ‘80s ra-ra skirts for a little while longer and don’t chuck your roller boots away just yet, as the Isle of Wight is once again gearing itself up for the ultimate feel-good festival!

Jack Up The 80s is a two-day retro pop festival which takes place on August 11 and 12, and provides a family weekend of musical entertainment from household chart names, food, attractions, kids arts and crafts and stalls.

The 2018 artist line-up includes Grammy Award-winning and international chart-topping music legend Leo Sayer, British pop rock group T’Pau, punk princess Toyah Willcox, soul star Jaki Graham, Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp, the one and only Chesney Hawkes and many more.

Special guests from the noughties Phats & Small will be helping to mix things up a bit, along with boy band Five.

The event is fast making a name for itself as the most fun festival on the South Coast. It offers an unbeatable atmosphere and is completely safe, inclusive and affordable for all.

In excess of £20,000 has been raised in the past 2 years for local charities and good causes.

The festival is held at easy-to-get-to location Smallbrook Stadium in Ryde, and the festival has worked with partners Wightlink and Red Funnel to offer mainland visitors 20% off ferry travel when purchasing their event tickets via the Jack Up The 80s website.

For those who simply can’t wait to get the party started, Jack Up The 80s presents the unstoppable The Magic of Motown Under the Stars concert on the evening of Friday August 10.
