Three 80s party-bands announced to play at Jack Up the Summer

Jack Up the Summer is renowned for being one big Summer party and for anyone who lived through the 80’s try as you might, it’s impossible to forget some of the real cheesy-pop tunes which were synonymous with the decade…

Get your cameras ready & prepare to take part in the biggest conga line the Isle of Wight has ever seen when British pop band Black Lace take to the stage! Best known for their novelty party anthems, Black Lace spent 86 weeks in the UK charts in the 1980’s. Their biggest hit, ‘Agadoo’ reached Number 2 in June 1984 and they went on to have follow-up success with tracks such as ‘Superman’, ‘Hokey Cokey’ & ‘Do the Conga.’

English novelty pop music act Jive Bunny & the Mastermixers are delighted to be heading to the Isle of Wight to mix up the hits! The act had eleven entries in the UK singles chart between 1989 and 1991.

A spokesperson for the bunny said; “In 2015 we performed our first live show in over 20 years when Jack Up The 80s invited us to the Isle of Wight. Since that day we have gone on to perform 100’s of live shows across Europe & jumped at the chance to return. 
It’s particularly fitting as this year is our 30th Anniversary and we are planning something very special for our live show. C’mon everybody…let’s party!”

Also returning after 3 years are British glam rock band Doctor and the Medics, famed for their 2.4 million selling Number 1 hit in 18 countries ‘Spirit in the Sky’.

Promising as ever to deliver a great live show that just has to be seen to be believed, this unique & sensationally flamboyant act won over hearts & minds at early editions of the event and band members have remained huge supporters of Jack Up.

Best known to millions as the chalk-faced vocalist of Doctor and the Medics, The Reverend Clive Thomas Jackson said; “We absolutely love this brilliant event & have made some really good friendships with people on the Isle of Wight as a result of performing at the Jack Up Summer festival. It is a pleasure to be invited back to get the party started on Saturday 10 August.
