Fancy dress is the order of the day on Saturday in South Park as we unleash disco kings, The Jacksons, basking in the dazzling reflection of the World’s Largest Disco Ball. Plus, you can fill your dancing boots with delights from The New Power Generation, Sparks, Boney M, The Cuban Brothers, Aswad, Jungle Brothers, Hak Baker, Cut Capers and Dancin Oxford.

Sunday’s singalong special comes courtesy of indie legends James, with hometown heroes Ride, plus Maximo Park, London African Gospel Choir presents Paul Simon’s Graceland, Elvana: Elvis Fronted Nirvana, Low Island and Chainska Brassika.

Rob da Bank says: “It’s been quite some ride putting together the Common People line ups for 2018. We love South Park in Oxford a lot and it’s become one of our favourite places to throw a party… this year will be super special with legendary Oxford band Ride coming back to South Park. Co-headliners James are the cherry on the cake. Our Disco Day on Saturday also promises to be super funky with The Jacksons bringing their disco and soul classics, but my personal highlight has to be Prince’s unbeatable backing band The New Power Generation coming over from the States for a one-off weekend with us. We couldn’t get Prince but we will have all the hits. Add in all the local Oxford bands and DJs and a real focus on family fun and entertainment and I promise you a magical May weekend awaits”.
