80’s hitmaker Nik Kershaw is the latest act to be announced for Jack Up The 80s 2017.
Taking place from August 11-13 at Smallbrook Stadium on the Isle of Wight, it is believed that this will be Nik’s first ever performance on ‘Festival Island’.
He will be treating fans to a selection of hits from his huge back catalogue, including The Riddle, Wouldn’t It Be Good and I Won’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me. He also famously wrote Chesney Hawkes’ mega-hit The One And Only.
Organisers have also announced details of the event’s all-new Friday party night. Party-goers will be entertained by Wave 105’s Steve Power on the decks and a live performance by top tribute band and Jack Up The 80’s favourites ABBA Chique.
Jack Up The 80’s will be headlined by Jason Donovan and Alexander O’Neal, as well as From The Jam, Formerly Of Bucks Fizz and The Real Thing.
Early-bird weekend and Friday night tickets will be available to buy from Monday from the County Press shop, Newport, and www.jackupthe80s.co.uk.
