Suede have now been confirmed to headline the Sunday night (September 4th), joining a stellar line up which already includes a UK festival exclusive of Brian Wilson performing Pet Sounds in it’s entirety for the record’s 50th anniversary & re-release. Brian Wilson is wooing festivals across Europe as we speak, and will bring the show to Together The People 2016 as Saturday night’s headliner on September 3rd.
Other new acts include Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Peter Hook & The Light performing Joy Division / New Order Greatest Hits and M. Ward. The children’s entertainment line up has also begun to unfold with Lazytown (live), Aliens Love Underpants (live) & more joining the bill.
Together The People is open to all ages and will host three music stages and welcome back the Incredible Moving Picturehouse Cinema. 2016 will also see the return of the Soapbox stage hosting a selection of talks, debates, poetry, spoken word, photography exhibitions and acoustic performances from local contributors and beyond.
As well as the programmed entertainment expect to find local street food, craft beer, roaming entertainers, children’s entertainment, arts and craft, local ales and workshops.

Together The People is an independent, greenfield, non camping, music and arts festival taking place in Preston Park, Brighton on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September 2016. The primary focus is to celebrate music, food, community, film and arts within the city of Brighton by delivering a high quality, creative, family friendly and socially aware event. In 2015 the festival was powered by bio-diesel & solar technology, re-cycled over 5.3 tonnes of waste and generated over £2,000 in public donations for local homeless charity ‘Brighton Housing Trust’.
