Speaking of the band’s involvement in this year’s line-up, Duran Duran’s John Taylor said: “We are very honoured to be a part of this year’s Common People festival, we had such a great time at Bestival last year […] It’s going to be a fantastic weekend! See you all there.”

Meanwhile the festival’s curator, Rob Da Bank said: So, we were already off to a flyer, and now we’re putting the cherry on top with the news that Duran Duran will be headlining Sunday! Icons of the last four decades, the boys are still churning out hits and absolutely smashed it at our mothership show Bestival last year. I’m also delighted to announce Katy B will be joining the party. See you on the Common.”

Other artists who will feature in the weekend’s events include Primal Scream, Public Enemy, Gaz Coombes, Ghostpoet, Don Broco, Jamie Lawson, Chas and Dave, The Cuban Brothers and Mr. Motivator.
