Here at Classic Pop we’re busy preparing ourselves for Let’s Rock Bristol! – it’s flagship Eighties weekender that returns to Ashton Court Estate on 5/6/7 June – and if the weather forecast is anything to go by it looks likely to be a sun-soaked three days!




Expect the finest grade of Eighties artists with Let’s Rock’s biggest line-up to date that includes Classic Pop favourites The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, The Boomtown Rats, Jimmy Somerville, Howard Jones, ABC, Go West, Nick Heyward, Five Star, China Crisis, Roland Gift and Sister Sledge.




The music isn’t confined to the arena either… Let’s Rock has taken the weekend camping experience up a notch thanks to exclusive Eighties DJ and live campsite sets for campers and weekend ticket holders, including Go West and Dr & The Medics. For those that want a little luxury the festival also offers alluring ‘glamping’ options such as Eve’s Tipis and WOW Tents, Tangerine Fields and Podpads.




There’s plenty for the whole family too including the new “Let’s Rock! Playpen” for kids, which includes free giveaways, circus workshops with the Bigtopmania Circus, face painting, crafts, tricycles and the “Disco Shack”!

Add the funfair – complete with water rides and children’s entertainers from BBC/ITV –  and it’s an ideal family outing.




This year also sees the introduction of the Eighties-themed VIP enclosure with Eighties stylists who offer ‘the ultimate 80s makeover’, luxury loos, a premium food outlet, coffee shop and full bar serving quality brands and 80s cocktails.

Those in possession of a VIP pass can also take advantage of the comfy chill out zone or in the outdoor seating area.
