After an incredible sell out year two, Common People will return to the stunning greenery of Southampton Common for a bonkers bank holiday bonanza on 27th and 28th May, 2017.
The second edition of the two-day music and arts festival saw the likes of Duran Duran, Craig David’s TS5, Primal Scream, Katy B, Public Enemy, Gaz Coombs, Ghost Poet, Jamie Lawson and many more take the helm of the Common Stage along with a plethora of local acts gracing the Uncommon Stage, all topped off with a lavish helping of the Bestival team’s renowned magic, mayhem and merriment. Uniting party lovers across the heart of England and beyond.
Rob da Bank says “Wow Southampton. Didn’t think you would be able to top 2015 but I was very wrong! The sunshine, the crowd, the music, the food, the world’s biggest bouncy castle, Craig David’s homecoming performance – Wow! Thanks for one of the best weekends so far this year. Can’t wait to be back”

Common People is an outdoor event utilising a park field, and this can pose some mobility problems, particularly in bad weather conditions. If it rains it may get muddy and access around the site (other than on paths) may be very difficult. Electric wheelchairs can tackle most areas without too much trouble but the ground can be uneven in places and is predominantly on grass.
There are some pathways which run through the festival entrance down the centre of the festival, but areas by the stages are on grass.
Common People do not offer any internal transport due to the limitations of moving around the site.
There are 3 major stages and performance areas. The mainstage is 190 metres from the entrance, the Uncontained Stage is 250 metres from the entrance and the Uncommon Stage is 170 metres from the entrance.
The festival site is very flat which should aide mobility around the park.
The Accessible carpark is located on Cemetery Road. Please note that you can only park here if you are a Blue Badge holder. Please note that this parking is only available when you arrive, and is subject to availability. If you arrive without this documentation you will be refused entry to the car parking area.
