A TRIO of '90s dance acts have been added to Jack Up the Summer's festival line-up.

The theme of this year's retro festival is Club Tropicana, and the event is on at North Fairlee Farm over the weekend of August 7 to 9.

Baby D, best known for their 1994 number one hit single Let Me Be Your Fantasy, will be taking to the stage.

The hit sold nearly half a million copies and has gone on to become a dance anthem favourite.

Their success continued with (Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime) I Need Your Loving, So Pure and Take Me to Heaven.

Sticking with the 90s dance theme, hot off the back of his set at Jack Up Christmas, Dario G, best known for his 1997 hit Sunchyme, will be returning to the Island this August.

Organisers said: “Dario G proved to be such a huge hit with the crowds we simply had to share this infectious musical experience with our wider Jack Up audience.

"Prepare to dance your neon socks off to this uplifting energetic DJ set in the glorious summer sunshine.”

In an exclusive to the Island, English electronic act Blue Pearl, who scored a smash hit single in both the US and UK with their 1990 debut track Naked in the Rain, are preparing to make their first live performance as Blue Pearl since 1999.

Singer-songwriter Durga McBroom said: “I’m thrilled to be participating in Jack Up the Summer.

"Blue Pearl are BACK in 2020 and I’m honoured to be included in this great line-up. To be appearing on the Isle of Wight is a special treat for me. See you all there.”

The acts will be joining the likes of M People’s Heather Small, Heaven 17, Big Country, Aswad, From The Jam, The Strangler’s front man Hugh Cornwell plus a huge '80s opening party with Doctor and The Medics, Black Lace and Jive Bunny.

Event manager Sarah Moss said of the Club Tropicana theme: “Although not mandatory, fancy dress has always been a big part of our fun-filled retro events, so much so that last summer we hosted the Island’s biggest ever unicorn party.

"This year we're asking attendees to dig out their Hawaiian shirts, straw beachcomber hats, novelty sunglasses, flip flops, sarongs and flower garlands and shake their maracas to celebrate summer on the beautiful Isle of Wight."

Little Luna Events will be bringing the '80s beach party look to the venue with tropical palm trees, flamingos and parrots galore.

Early bird tickets are only available until January 31, from jackupthesummer.co.uk and the County Press office in Newport.

The goodwill gesture for 2019 ticket holders is also available until January 31.

The festival is supporting Beaulieu Respite as its nominated charity.
