The weekend will feature tributes to Simply Red, Go West, Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Madonna, Jersey Boys (Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons) as well as Real Dead Ringer – The Meat Loaf Show, featuring full live band.

Held at their new farm site in Ryde, this year’s re-formatted event will running to a smaller capacity meaning tickets are strictly limited in number and are expected to sell out fast.

Event Organiser Sarah Moss has said:

“As we emerge from what has been a very challenging time for everyone the whole world over, our priority is to give our loyal followers an affordable way to reunite and have fun with their families this Summer. Jack up fans tell us they prefer the smaller events with no crowds or queues, so that’s exactly what we’ve gone for. We’re also providing even MORE opportunities to enjoy the Jack Up experience as we’re spreading the fun with a whole range of feel-good events throughout the year”.
