Celebrate the biggest feel-good hits at this year’s Jack Up Summer Party


Get ready to immerse yourself in the ultimate Summer celebration at this year’s Jack Up Summer Party! The two-day extravaganza, taking place on the 10th and 11th of August, promises to bring all the fun with a sensational line-up featuring world-class tribute acts and original artists.

Prepare to be blown away by a diverse array of talent, including special guest artist Nathan Moore of 80’s pop band Brother Beyond and a stand-out performance by The Princes of Motown, a fast-paced, contemporary, adrenaline-fuelled show dedicated to all the smash hit-selling Motown groups.

The stage will come alive with world-class tribute acts paying homage to music legends such as Take That, Bryan Adams, Lionel Richie, McBusted, Steps, Tina Turner, John Lennon, Bruno Mars, and Ariana Grande. From timeless classics to chart-topping hits, the Jack Up Summer Party 2024 is set to be a musical journey across the decades.

Javier Parisi is perhaps the greatest tribute artist around, as he channels the spirit of the late John Lennon astonishing Beatles fans all over the world. Not only does he look exactly like John Lennon, but he sounds just like him too. Javier will be flying in from his home in Buenos Aires, especially for the event.


Direct from L.A. California, Jeff Dingle’s appearance on American Idol made him an overnight star. He is now the Number 1 Bruno Mars tribute artist in the business and has won acclaim from industry royalty the world over.

Tina Turner was one of the most enduring and iconic music legends of all time. With a career spanning over 50 years, she sold over 200 million records worldwide, making her one of the biggest-selling recording artists in history. Typically Tina is an amazingly accurate tribute to The Queen of Rock and Roll and accompanied by a full live band, will be celebrating her legacy by performing all of her greatest hits.

Steptacular is a tribute to the 90s iconic legends, Steps. With their fun-loving dance routines and catchy melodies, this guilty pleasure is guaranteed to have everyone on their feet.

With such a broad mix of acts, there’s something for everyone.

The Island’s boutique gathering will once again be hosted at the picturesque Retro Staycations in Ryde, Isle of Wight. The venue’s charming ambiance and scenic surroundings will provide the perfect backdrop for this musical feast. The party kicks off on Saturday 10th of August and continues through until Sunday 11th, offering two full days of non-stop entertainment.

Billed a ‘family-friendly celebration of popular party hits,’ they’ll be plenty of retro-themed entertainment to keep party-goers busy throughout the event. Take a stroll through the vintage fairground, complete with classic rides and games that will transport you back to your childhood.
