About Let's Rock Southampton!

LRS_logo_300After 5 years of 80s fun at our sell out events Let’s Rock The Moor! in Cookham, Berkshire and Let’s Rock Bristol! we are delighted to announce that the first Let’s Rock Southampton! will take place on Southampton Common on Saturday 12th July 2014! With a fabulous line-up of artists to bring you the very best of the 80s, and an action packed day of general 80s madness, there is plenty to do for everyone at this Family Friendly Festival!

Tons of attractions to keep the children happy, such as our free Bigtopmania circus, a super funfair including water rides and soft play areas, as well as children’s entertainers from BBC/ITV, Let’s Rock Southampton! offers the perfect day out for all the family.  Multiple bars and a wide range of quality food outlets, selling everything from hotdogs to award-winning Tandoori, means every taste is catered for.  Posh toilets will also be available for those that like a little bit of festival luxury plus a new, fantastic VIP package.  Enjoy our “Changeover Party” which includes an array of entertainment during those dull band changeovers, including our new “BigScreen Sing”, DJ’s from Absolute 80s, other Entertainers and TV legends to keep the party going for the whole day!  Don’t miss out on this retro blast!

You can bring your own picnic into the main arena but we have a wide variety of catering on offer, including a large BBQ, Indian, Mexican and Chinese.

PLEASE NOTE: Glasses, glass bottles, alcohol and any sharp objects are not permitted anywhere on site.


Dogs are not permitted anywhere in the Festival site.

You can bring your own tables and chairs into the main arena but Security may ask you to move them to the perimiter of the arena if they are causing any obstruction.

Gazeebo’s and Tents

Small tents (up to a height of 1m) are permitted into the main arena but again, Security may ask you to move them to the perimiter of the arena if they are causing any obstruction. Gazeebo’s and larger tents are not permitted on site.

billyoceanPlease note that the line-up is subject to change, without prior notice, if circumstances beyond our control dictate this.

Disabled guests


Let’s Rock Southampton! welcomes disabled festival goers and takes all reasonable measures to assist with their attendance and enjoyment of the event. At the same time, the festival takes place in the open countryside and disabled guests should be aware that the main arena, car park and surrounding areas are, naturally, fairly uneven and may be difficult to navigate.  Let’s Rock Southampton! stewards will be available, subject to peak movements, to assist disabled guests in getting in to the main arena.

The main car park is immediately adjacent to the arena entrance and parking stewards will ensure that any registered disabled guests are directed to the disabled parking area, which is very close to the main arena entrance.

Disabled toilets are provided on site.

There is no covered viewing platform at Lets Rock Southampton!, but there is a small area reserved for disabled guests. However, if disabled guests find that there are specific problems resulting from their disability, please contact one of the stewards who will be happy to do everything possible to help you.

In our efforts to make Let’s Rock Southampton! accessible to everyone, we offer disabled ticket holders, subject to availability, a free ticket for a personal assistant.  This offer is open to those who hold a current higher rate of DLA (2012 or 2013), or other UK government approved supporting evidence of their requirement for a personal assistant.

IMPORTANT: This offer is only available to those people that would be unable to attend the festival without a full time assistant.  Every application is looked at on an individual basis and if anyone is found to be making a fraudulent application, we reserve the right to cancel both the original ticket and personal assistant ticket, before and during the event.

To apply for a personal assistant ticket, please follow the procedure below:
-  Buy a standard Adult ticket (must be online)
-  Email us proof of purchase (the email from Gigantic) AND a copy of your Letter of award for DLA at high rate

Please send your email to before June 16th 2014.
