Last year you might have known of it as Bandstand LIVE, but this year the show is back with new acts, a new lease of life, and a new name.

Southampton City LIVE returns to the Bandstand in the historic Palmerston Park on Saturday 13th May 2017 for its third year.

Organized by Matt Bunday Events Limited and Voice FM – and in association with Radio Taxis, Southampton Solent University, and SoCo Music Project – the event will have multiple stages running throughout the day.

This exciting live music and art event will be kicking off at 12pm and will have music across four stages: the Southampton Music Hub Stage at the main Bandstand, the SoCo Introduces Stage, VoiceFM Homegrown Stage, and the Busking Stage which will be located outside of Ebb and Flow on Southampton Highstreet.

Confirmed artists currently include Basement 83, The Diamond Age, and Callum Lintott on the Bandstand Stage, and Riskology, Route 2 Roots, and Ninety9 on the Homegrown Stage. Special guests are still to be announced.

Line-up for the Bandstand and Homegrown stages

Throughout the day there will be various trade stands selling a selection of crafts, goods, and services from local traders, as well as children’s entertainment and food and drink provided by Mettricks and Ringwood brewery.

The event is sponsored by the Enham Trust, a local charity set up after World War One to help those with learning and physical disabilities to live the life they want, as independently as they want. They work with over 8,500 people each year across the South helping to make their lives more positive, offering a number of services to put the power back in the hands of their clients.

“We’re delighted to be part of Southampton City Live this year, and incredibly grateful to the organizers for supporting us in this way,” said Hannah Leicester, Enham Trust’s Head of Income Generation. “It truly is thanks to community events such as these that we are able to fund and continue our work, supporting as many disabled people as possible to live independently.”
