80s pop band Duran Duran and Katy B are headling the Common People event at Oxford’s South Park.

The event takes place on Saturday May 28 and Sunday May 29.

Commenting on their headline performance, Duran Duran’s John Taylor said: “We are very honoured to be a part of this year’s Common People festival, we had such an incredible time at Bestival last year. It’s going to be a fantastic weekend! See you all there.”

Duran Duran have provided the soundtrack to the lives of several generations, from their early days in Birmingham’s Rum Runner formulating the sound that would give us Planet Earth and Girls on Film to their latest acclaimed album, Paper Gods, that returned them to the top ten winning them a whole new audience in the process.

Dance music trailblazer Katy B also appears fresh from a wave of chart invading beat fanatics, Katy’s armoury of pop-rave bangers saw her last album taking the top spot in the charts.

Both acts will be joining previously announced performers Primal Scream, Craig David, Public Enemy, Gaz Coombes, Soul II Soul and Chas and Dave.

Tickets are available at a variety of prices while there are tickets available for both days of the music extravaganza. There is no camping overnight at the event
