Fatman Scoop is the latest addition Southampton’s Common People bill

The legendary hype-man, Fatman Scoop, has been added to the bulging Common People bill

Famed for his UK number 1 hit ‘Be Faithful’ and collaborations with Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson and Skrillex, the multi-Grammy winner will be taking on the Uncontained Stage on Sunday with his catalogue of hip-hop classics.

Rob da Bank says “We got the show off to a flying start with two massive headliners in Pete Tong, The Heritage Orchestra & Jules Buckley and Sean Paul, not to mention a huge line-up of great bands and DJs. Now we are putting the icing on the cake with livewire, force of nature Fatman Scoop and some cracking indie action from the likes of The Magic Gang and Blaenavon. That’s as well as some of the best local acts we could find including the winners of our I Want to Play at Common People competition, so let’s be havin’ ya… See you down the front!”

Geek-rockers The Magic Gang, ghost-jazz trio Blaenavon, and ‘it’s on’ star LST are joined by some of Southampton’s finest local talent including The ManateesThe CostellosThe Dead Freights and ‘I Want to Play at Common People’ winners, Mad King Ludwig & the Mojo Co. and Submariner.

Tier 1 tickets have now ended and VIP tickets are selling out fast.
