About the festival

Party people rejoice! The ultimate feel-good festival will be returning to North Fairlee Farm, on the picturesque Isle of Wight in its traditional slot on the second weekend in August.

Now in its eighth year, Jack Up is a fun-filled, family-friendly greatest hits retro music festival and one of the South’s most popular events. 

Centred around party hits and feel-good music from the 80s and 90s, attendees are guaranteed to be uplifted by the hand-clapping music of yesteryear. This festival provides a first-class weekend of entertainment from household chart name acts, great food, real ale bar, kids attractions and stalls. 

The multitalented Heather Small and Heaven 17 will be headlining in 2021, plus look out for some extra great names and exclusive bonus acts still to be added to the bill. This year’s festival theme is Club Tropicana, so dig out your Hawaiian shirts, straw beachcomber hats, novelty sunglasses, flip flops, sarongs and flower garlands, and shake your maracas to celebrate summer on the sunshine Isle.

Situated in a central location, on a main bus route with excellent transport connections, Jack Up boasts an unrivalled atmosphere and is completely safe, inclusive and affordable for all.

Over the years the event has raised over £30,000 for good causes and local charities and is supporting Beaulieu Respite and Children’s Home as its nominated charity partner for 2020/21. 

So, if you’re tempted by the idea of rolling back the years to dance the weekend away, this happy, bright, celebratory event is the one for you.
