Fatboy Slim's going to headline a brand new music festival in Southampton - with Clean Bandit also on the line-up.
Common People's being held at the end of May, on the Common.
Other acts across the two days include De la Soul, Band of Skulls, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, DJ Yoda and the Cuban Brothers. A full new bands line-up is due to be announced in the next month, including the Sunday headliner.
The new festival, from the team behind Bestival, will take place on 23 and 24 May 2015.
Common People curator, Rob da Bank said:
"It's been a long time coming to launch a new show from the Bestival family. We thought long and hard before deciding to base our new show in Southampton. I played my first ever DJ gig in Southampton when I was 16, so this is a real home coming for me.
"As with everything we do at Bestival HQ, we have really put our heart and soul into this show, from big headliners to very hot new talent and old faves, the music is so important, but equally the food, the cocktails, the layout of the show, the kids area, the sound and lights and the decor will be second to none. Thanks a mill to the council and good people of Southampton and the south coast for welcoming us over to the mainland! Viva Common People!"
