Let’s Rock, the UK’s biggest retro festival brand, have announced the headliners and performers for nine of next year’s summer 2020 festival series.

In a line-up packed with Eighties icons, Let’s Rock 2020 headliners include Adam Ant, OMD, UB40 and Wet Wet Wet. Other performers include ABC and Howard Jones – exclusives for Let’s Rock, you won’t see them at any other UK festival next summer – plus Tony Hadley, The Boomtown Rats, Kim Wilde, Sister Sledge, Midge Ure’s Electronica, Toyah, T’Pau, Go West, Nik Kershaw, Chesney Hawkes, Betty Boo, Heaven 17 and many more.

“Really looking forward to performing at the Let’s Rock festivals in 2020,” says Martin Fry of ABC. “Sunshine guaranteed. Last time round was incredible from the audience through to every act involved. See you there.”

Wet Wet Wet’s Graeme Clark says, “We’re looking forward to playing three decades worth of hits from the 80s, 90s and 00s for you”. Frontman Kevin Simm adds, “We’ve never played Let’s Rock before, but we’ve heard wonderful things so we’re excited to be a part of it!”

Let’s Rock legend Kim Wilde comments, “We’re privileged to play shows all over the world, but there’s very little

 that can match the warmth and fun of a Let’s Rock crowd. We always have an amazing time and enjoy watching the other acts just as much as the audience does! Bring on 2020!”

A celebration of all things pop and 80s, Let’s Rock offers gloriously unpretentious non-stop fun, with legendary artists performing hit after hit to a crowd of all ages, many of whom embrace the throwback vibe by dressing in their finest retro fashion. 2019 was the most successful summer series in Let’s Rock’s eleven-year history, with twelve festival locations and a total audience of over 150,000. With their brilliant summer 2020 line-up, next year’s Let’s Rock series promises to be even bigger and better.

Let’s Rock organisers Nick Billinghurst and Matt Smith also commented, “We’re thrilled that’s Let’s Rock is able to attract headliners of the calibre of Adam Ant, OMD, UB40 and Wet Wet Wet. That we’re able to provide such an incredible line-up and to grow Let’s Rock every

year is down to our amazingly loyal and up-for-it audience, and we’d like to thank each and every one of you for a fantastic 2019 season. Roll on summer 2020!”

Let’s Rock works with many amazing charities including 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. During 2019, Let’s Rock has raised almost £125k for Child Bereavement UK.
