I grew up in the 80’s, I am an 80’s child, and therefore I’d like to take the chance to be completely biased and say it was one of the best eras for music! So it came as no surprise that the 80’s Rewind Festival was a great success last summer, though I would like to thank all the festival goers for their lively discussions and positive comments on our article posts. Late last year I reported on plans for 2010, which have now moved at breakneck speed towards confirmation. So hold on to your hats, as its time for those all important line-up and ticket details!
First off for the science bit. This years festival will take place between 20-22nd August at Temple Island Meadows, Henley On Thames. Just like last year, the stunning festival site will cater for both day visitors, and campers, with spaces for campervans, glamorous ready erected tents, family friendly camping fields, and boat moorings. It’s a festival for all ages, and there will be food, drink, and entertainment to suit all tastes as well. This will include comedy, fireworks, funfairs, and even a bit of Karaoke for anyone who’s in the mood for a sing-along. This will all run alongside a two day feast of main stage action, featuring some of the best 80’s stars around! Feast your eyes on this little lot:
Sat 21st Aug: Boy George, Rick Astley, Level 42, Jimmy Somerville, The Weather Girls, T’Pau, Kajagoogoo, Heaven 17, Imagination, Curiosity Killed The Cat, Altered Images, Modern Romance.
Sun 22nd Aug: Tony Hadley and Guests, ABC and Go West, Marc Almond, Bjorn Again, Midge Ure, Kid Creole and The Coconuts, Chesney Hawkes, 10CC, Hazel O’Connor, Odyssey, Johnny Hates Jazz, The Beat.
Although I’ve yet to go to 80’s Rewind, I have been to 80’s concerts before and the atmosphere it amazing. I’m sure with a line-up like this, 80’s Rewind will be no different. If this sounds like your kind of festival experience, then check out the ticket prices and details below!
