This year continues with the theme of Bandstand on Tour, with performances taking place across Castle Field, Victoria Park, Southsea Common and King George V Playing Fields, as the traditional bandstand remains out of use due to the ongoing sea defence works.

Saturday 5 August
King George V Playing Fields
Neverman, Electric Milk, JJ Summer, and Bella Estelle

Sunday 6 August
King George V Playing Fields
Lauren & The Heatwaves, and Honky Tonk Party Band
