Thousands of music fans are enjoying two of the south's top festivals.

The sun has been shining on Southampton Common where the crowds have been enjoying music and entertainment at this year's Common People Festival.

While over in Oxford at South Park organiser Rob da Bank said the Common People festival there would be the best yet.

It's estimated 10,000 will descend on each site over the weekend. In Oxford The Jacksons and Prince's former backing band, the New Power Generation, are taking to the stage.

While in Southampton rising indie stars The Sherlocks will be playing their UK debut. Boney M, All Saints and Lily Allen are also at the Hampshire event.

Both festivals are said to be family friendly with entertainment for all ages. And for the older generation...the event in Oxford includes the Great Oxfordshire Gin Festival!
