The Let’s Rock Bristol! festival will descend on Ashton Court in June and the line-up for this summer was confirmed this week.

The opening day, on June 3, will see 1980s acts take centre stage with Gloria Gaynor, Village People, Black Lace, T’Pau, Kim Wilde and more all booked to perform.

And on the second day attention will turn to the 1990s, as Atomic Kitten, Happy Mondays, Toploader, Lightning Seeds and B*Witched perform live.

Festival organisers are allowing people to camp throughout the weekend. Campers on the night before the festival will get to enjoy Midge Ure and Modern Romance too.
