22-01-2015 Red Funnel offers Islanders the chance to Come Together for Common People

Islanders hoping to attend the exciting new Common People festival in Southampton on the second May Bank Holiday weekend can buy affordable day-trip tickets and travel packages from Red Funnel.

The ferry company has put together a series of packages for the event which is on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May. Adult Day return foot passenger fares from East or West Cowes cost just £9.20 and day-trip packages from £29.50 which include admission.

Red Funnel will also be operating additional late night services on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 May to make sure festivalgoer’s can get home each day. Bus operators are also expected to run more connecting services on both sides of the Solent.

The stellar line-up for Common People was announced yesterday evening and features acts such as Fatboy Slim, De La Soul, Jaguar Skills, Clean Bandit and Southampton natives Band of Skulls. The festival is being organised by the team behind the multi-award winning Bestival and Camp Bestival and promises a truck load of bank holiday high jinks including Mr Motivator workouts, trapeze lessons, the Big Bubble Bash and lots more daytime diversions.

Jonathan Green, marketing and communications director at Red Funnel, said: “We’re delighted to offer Islanders the chance to enjoy Common People as a warm up to the Isle of Wight Festival in June and Bestival in September. Southampton Common is a great venue for live music and our additional late night services will ensure Islanders can stay to the end of each day.”

Admission tickets and Common People packages can be purchased from Red Funnel’s website, by phone 0238 0019 192 or in person from Red Funnel’s East or West Cowes Ticket Offices.
