Let’s Rock With Pop Legends at Newport’s Tredegar Park

A joyous annual celebration of all things retro pop, with fourteen events across the UK this summer, Let’s Rock UK & Ireland’s leading retro festival series comes to Tredegar Park, Newport on June 4.

In a festival scene dominated by the same names and themes, Let’s Rock offers something different: gloriously unpretentious non-stop fun where iconic names from pop play hit after hit to a crowd of all ages.

Among the line-up heading to Wales are some of the biggest chart names of yesteryear performing their greatest hits. These include Adam Ant, OMD + ABC, Howard Jones, Marc Almond, Jaki Graham, Chesney Hawkes, Betty Boo, T’Pau and Hue & Cry.

Since launching in 2008 with a solitary festival at Cookham Moor in Berkshire, Let’s Rock has grown into the UK’s biggest retro festival series, and in doing so has re-launched and revitalized the careers of many ‘80s icons. Moreover, in a crowded festival market, Let’s Rock has managed to grow and grow: 2022 will be their biggest year yet in terms of both audience and number of festival locations.

The incredibly loyal and notoriously enthusiastic Let’s Rock audiences – many of whom dress up and attend in their finest ‘80s fashion – are one of the many reasons the stars return year after year….

Jaki Graham whose 1980s hits include Could It Be I’m Falling In Love, Set Me Free and Round and Round will be part of the Wales line-up and says: “It doesn’t matter where you are in the country, everybody’s there for the nostalgia and their genuine love of the music.  The energy is simply electric from every single crowd!”
