East 17 set for Jack Up the Summer

Iconic 90s boyband East 17 will taking to the stage at Jack Up The Summer on Sunday 11th August as the event broadens its appeal to incorporate a day of 90s music.

Organisers said; “90s fans have been crying out for a day like this, there’s never been a 90s festival on the Isle of Wight before and we’ve secured some great names. First act off of the starting blocks is East 17. With a raft of anthems like ‘House of Love’, ‘It’s Alright’, ‘Steam’, ‘Let It Rain’, ‘Deep’ and of course ‘Stay Another Day’ this promises to be the singalong moment of the weekend. The Jack Up team saw them perform live in London last year and they took the crowd by storm.”

The lineup currently consists of original member Terry Coldwell, along with Artful Dodger’s Robbie Craig who joined in 2014 as well as Terry John, who stepped in last year when original member John Hendy left.

The event takes place at its new location, North Fairlee Farm just outside of Newport. Early Bird Weekend and Day tickets go on sale on Monday 28 January and will be available online at jackupthesummer.co.uk as well as over the counter at Island outlets including the County Press office in Newport.
