Jack Up The Summer – or Jack Up The 80s as it used to be known – returns to the Isle of Wight for yet another weekend of throwback fun. The popular event continues to deliver on its retro promise by celebrating the dance-inducing music of yesteryear, centred around feel-good tunes from both the 80s and 90s.

This family-friendly festival is perfect for anyone seeking a blast from the past – your chance to dig out the hairspray, the roller-boots and the neon and boogie the weekend away in a colourful whirl of nostalgia.

Now in its seventh year, Jack Up The Summer is able to attract some big names to the Island – the 2019 lineup includes Nick Heyward, East 17, Aswad, 911, Hugh Cornwell (frontman of The Stranglers), Republica and Heaven 17. Many more acts are set to be revealed over the coming weeks.
