The iconic retro festival series Let’s Rock has announced the dates of four of their festivals for 2024.

A celebration of all things pop and ‘80s, Let’s Rock will be returning to Leeds ( June 22), Exeter (June 29), Southampton (July 6) and Shrewsbury  (July 13) next summer.

Let’s Rock offers glorious non-stop nostalgic fun, with legendary musicians performing hit after hit to a family crowd of all ages (many of whom come dressed in their finest ‘80s fashion). Each of the one-day festivals features two headline acts plus a host of stars from the era when pop ruled the world. 2023 headliners included Soft Cell, The Human League, Bananarama and OMD. 

Headliners plus full line-ups for the initial four shows will be announced soon, along with a number of further summer 2024 festival locations.

Let’s Rock organisers and founders Nick Billinghurst and Matt Smith; “We really pleased to be able to announce that Let’s Rock will return to some of our longest-running locations in summer 2024 – Leeds, Exeter, Southampton and Shrewsbury. We know that our performers love playing these places, where the audiences are always totally up for an all-day party.”

Let’s Rock works with a number of charities including official charity partner Child Bereavement UK, who support families and educate professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a family is facing bereavement. Since partnering with organisers UK Live in 2014, Child Bereavement have raised almost a million pounds at Let’s Rock events.
