Comments Ali Campbell, the voice of UB40: “We’re really looking forward to making our debut at Let’s Rock next summer. We’ve heard great things about the energy of the crowds at these festivals, which is something we love to tap into. Sunshine, good vibes and reggae music… the perfect summer’s evening! Big Love xx.”
Comments Jason Donovan: “I can’t wait to perform at Let’s Rock Leeds, Exeter, Southampton, and Shrewsbury in 2024. Let’s Rock means summertime to me and I’m already looking forward to the longer and warmer days. Bring it on!”
Comment Let’s Rock organisers and founders Nick Billinghurst & Matt Smith: “We’re thrilled to announce the line- ups for three of next summer’s festivals. We have returning Let’s Rock legends like Level 42 and Jason Donovan, plus iconic artists making their debut, including UB40 Featuring Ali Campbell and Martin Kemp. How exciting is that?! We think Let’s Rock offers the best value of any Festival. Where else could you see so many huge stars live for the price of a meal out?! See you in 2024!”
