Among the stars at Let's Rock Southampton is Adam Ant, who had ten top ten hits including three number ones with Adam and the Ants and were one of the top rock/pop bands of the early 80s.

Billy Ocean is best known for hits such as Red Light Spells Danger and When the Going Gets Tough.

In a festival scene dominated by the same names and themes, Let’s Rock offers something different: gloriously unpretentious non-stop fun where iconic names from pop play hit after hit to a crowd of all ages and, with the addition of two more festival sites for 2022, this years’ Let’s Rock is the biggest yet.

The Let’s Rock 2022 season takes in 13 locations right across the UK, including Southampton Common.

A combined audience of over 150,000 people will be entertained across the Let’s Rock 2022 sites by many of the biggest stars of the era when British pop ruled supreme,

The Isle of Wight's own Level 42 are playing some of the gigs but sadly, not the Southampton one.
