Jack Up The 80s is renowned for being one big Summer party and that’s the true essence of what people love about it. Now there’s fabulous news for party-goers as this hugely popular event is broadening its appeal to allow for a richer variety of music.

Returning now as ‘Jack Up The Summer’ in its traditional slot this August, this much loved family friendly throwback festival will continue to celebrate the upbeat, hand-clapping music of yesteryear, centred around party hits and feel-good music from the 80s and 90s.

Organisers said; “We’re now into our seventh year and with so many UK festivals having latterly fallen by the wayside it’s essential we allow the event to evolve naturally, but without losing any of the fun-loving charisma which embodies the Jack Up brand and makes it unique. We want to be able to bring audiences a wider variety of acts however it goes without saying we still absolutely love the 80s and the 80s spirit will always be at the heart of Jack Up The Summer.

In fact, the 2019 edition of the event guarantees 100% 80s chart acts on one of the two days. Saturday 10 August will see a string of household 80s names, with Sunday 11 August paying homage to the 90s.

We continuously listen to the demands of our audience and have always thrown a number of curveballs into our line-ups, starting with The Hoosiers at the very first edition of the festival back in 2013. The tweak to the name is a simple adjustment to ensure the long-term sustainability of our retro promise, however loyal festival-goers can expect the same great, if not better experience.”

It’s as a result of audience feedback that the event will also be relocating to North Fairlee Farm, alongside the River Medina just outside of Newport. Speaking of the move, organisers said; “We thought spreading the event out across two areas would enhance the festival offering however this caused families’ to become separated and the experience was quite disjointed. Being a family event Jack Up is all about togetherness so we’re ensuring a much safer environment for our customers by bringing the show back into one big field so that the kids can enjoy themselves at the funfair
whilst the adults party on down to the music. This way no one misses out and all amenities are fully accessible.”

The new site is set in a river-side location in the very centre of the Island and therefore easily accessible to all, on a main bus route with excellent transport connections.

The ethos of this fun Summer festival has always been to give something back to the local community within which it is held, with a wide range of charities and local good causes such as the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, Breast Cancer Research UK, Oxfam, the Joe Ellis Trust, Wight Crystal and IW Scouts to name but a few all having benefited by being offered a key trading opportunity at the event. With your help we have facilitated the fundraising of over £20,000 for Island charities in the past 2 years! Our charity of the year for 2018 was Prostate Cancer UK.

Attendees to the festival continue to embrace the retro theme and as the past six years have shown, there is a real passion for reliving the good times of Frankie Says and Choose Life t-shirts, florescent headbands, leg warmers, legendary blockbuster movies and of course great music and acts like Heaven 17 and East 17.

We think you’ll all agree that the ticket price continues to be amazing value! Once again we’ve done our upmost to keep ticket costs as low as possible to ensure families have a first class weekend and remember… the earlier you buy the more you save with our “Beat the Clock” admission system.
