10 and 11 August 2019 Jack Up the Summer is a superb family friendly festival which continues to go from strength to strength. On the Island there's 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 fantastic music!


The biggest Summer party & most fun festival in the South is back!

Jack Up The 80s is renowned for being one big Summer party & 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 as ‘Jack Up The Summer’ this August, the Island’s ultimate family-friendly throwback festival continues to celebrate the upbeat, hand-clapping music of yesteryear, centred around party hits and feel-good music from the 80s and 90s.

The 2019 edition of the event guarantees 100% 80s chart acts on Saturday 10 August, with Sunday 11 August paying homage to the 90s.
