THE JOINERS will present some of the most exciting new acts from Southampton and beyond at Common People this weekend.
While big names like Lily Allen, James, The Jacksons, The Sherlocks and All Saints ignite the main stage, 24 potential future headliners will appear across the weekend on the Uncommon Stage presented by the St Mary Street music venue.
Get down early on Saturday to see one of the “I Want to Play at Common People” winners Posh Ellen kick off the weekend, while on Sunday Local indie-rockers The Lost Boys, who released their debut album Nosebleeds this year and have previously supported Paul Weller, are first up.
Upstarts, Miss Vincent and Winchester singer-songwriter Josh Savage, who has supported Sheffield indie stars Reverend and The Makers, Rizzle Kicks and Catfish and the Bottlemen, are next up on Saturday.
Southampton’s Pioneers, whose single Take Time made it onto Radio One after BBC Introducing Solent’s Steph Newenhouse championed it, play early Saturday afternoon before Local five-piece Deference take over.
The Collision’s Lewis Smith said that they were “thrilled” to be at Common People, adding that they were thankful not to be clashing with favourite band The Sherlocks, who play the main stage on Saturday afternoon, and Southampton’s Wild Front who follow The Edit on the main stage on Sunday.
No strangers to this festival, psychedelic-indie stars The Rising are sure to draw a big crowd before Demob Happy, Milk Teeth and Glasgow duo Honeyblood keep the beat going on Saturday night.
Local favourites Minister, made up of frontman Ollie Cole, lead guitarist Jed Rees, bassist Bar Dobbs and drummer Henry Wilkins, close the first day before it all starts again on Sunday with acts including Djuno, Reawaken, Lauran Hibberd, Southampton’s Toreador, Black Foxes, Ben Goddard and Saints of Sin.
Pale Seas, made up of frontman Jacob Scott, lead guitarist Graham Poole, bassist Matthew Bishop and drummer Andrew Richardson, play in the early evening before Get Cape Wear Cape Fly and trio Dream Wife, who describe their sound as “worshipping at the twin altars of David Bowie and Madonna”, continue into the evening.
Southampton rockers Torcoda Fray, who only released their first single Lift Up The Sky in January, close what is set to be another packed weekend.
