Jack Up The 80s Returns For Volume 3!

After two successful years, Jack Up The 80s is returning to the Isle of Wight for a third edition. The 80s festival, which has played host to the likes of Bad Manners, The Hoosiers, Toyah and Katrina & the Waves, provides entertainment for those looking to reimburse their vivid youth from the 80s.

The event was first set up in 2013 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of local registered charity Wight Crystal. Wight Crystal not only provides the Isle of Wight with fresh spring water and water coolers, but also provides a programme of activities supporting people with physical and learning disabilities, autism and long term conditions.

The popular event is now even bigger this year with a star-studded lineup guaranteed to make you put your dancing shoes on! Acts performing at this years event include former Isle of Wight Festival performers ABC, The Christians and Bruce Foxton’s From The Jam as well as performances from Cheryl, Mike and Jay from Bucks Fizz, Jaki Graham, Sonia and Go West will be closing proceedings on Sunday 9th August. There will also be DJ sets from David Van Day and 80s legend and former I’m A Celebrity contestant Pat Sharp.

Tickets are still available to buy online at: http://jackupthe80s.gigantic.com/jack-up-the-80s/garlic-festival-site/2015-08-08-10-00. The event is certainly great value for money at just £35 for day tickets and £40 for weekend tickets (excluding booking fees).
