Events - Music in & around Portsmouth
Founded in 2013 Jack Up Events is an Event Management company that has developed from running a flagship retro festival on the Isle of Wight to broadening into other decade-themed events throughout the year.
Our guiding star is to deliver affordable high-quality, locally-accessible cultural entertainment for an audience that includes visitors seeking an Island attraction and anyone who wishes to indulge in their youth, reliving happy memories whilst coming together to make new ones.
The catalyst is the annual Jack Up The Summer retro festival, an independent grassroots event (5,000 capacity), which takes place annually over the second weekend in August.
Established for 8 years, Jack Up The Summer provides an entirely different type of offering, a family-orientated festival enabling people of all ages to partake in and enjoy the festival experience.
This year's hotly-anticipated festival takes place between 6-8th August 2021 at North Fairlee Farm in Newport and features the voice of M People Heather Small, Heaven 17, Hugh Cornwell, Aswad, From The Jam and many more.
Centred around party hits and feel-good music from the 80s and 90s, attendees are guaranteed to be uplifted by the upbeat, hand-clapping music of yesteryear. The event provides a first-class weekend of entertainment from household chart name acts, great food, real ale bar, kids attractions and stalls.
Situated in a central location, on a main bus route with great transport connections, it boasts an unrivalled atmosphere and is completely safe, inclusive and affordable for all.
Jack Up Events' company ethos is to invest in local services and skills and to raise vital funds for charities and good causes.
