LET'S Rock Southampton is due to go ahead this summer, organisers have announced.

In a Facebook post on Friday, organisers of the popular event said that they are excited that this years event is now going ahead.

This comes after the event had to be delayed from its original date due to coronavirus restrictions at the time.

Now though, it is due to take place on August 14 at Southampton Common with certain measures in place to keep those attending safe.

In the post on facebook, organisers said: "It's official we are going ahead! We cannot tell you how excited we are to be back in that field with you all again!

"Whilst restrictions will be lifted on the 19th July we have a few simple conditions of entry to help keep everyone safe."

Those attending are being asked to produce a negative lateral flow test or show evidence of double vaccination before being allowed in.

Sanitisation stations are also being set up and extra cleaning will take place throughout the weekend.

Bars will have perspex screens and public health messaging are set to be visible throughout the site.
