Due to the outstanding success of the first "Rewind Scotland – The 80s Festival" in Perth during July 2011, the festival returns for the second year in a row. As with last year’s unforgettable concert performances and audience participation celebrations, this year’s Rewind Scotland boasts another massive live outdoor line-up of the crème de la crème of 80s recording artists/performers.
Rewind Scotland will take place from Friday 20th July until Sunday 22nd July at Scone Palace, Perthshire, Scotland (www.scone-palace.co.uk).
Full details for ticket outlets and prices are available from the official Rewind Festival website - www.rewindfestival.com.
This year’s line-up is headlined by Big Country and Holly Johnson. Adam Ant & The Good, The Mad & The Lovely Posse are confirmed as very special guests. Other highlights include a rare appearance from Village People, Scottish icons Midge Ure, Jimmy Somerville, Altered Images and Average White Band, as well as the reformed original line-up of Five Star, Lightning Seeds, Marc Almond, Chesney Hawkes, Roland Gift and many more!
As in 2011, the organisers have announced that Rewind Scotland will once again take place at the historic setting of Scone Palace in Perthshire – the home of The Earls of Mansfield and the crowning palace of the Kings of Scotland.
The festival takes place on the weekend of the 20th-22nd July and, as well as the massive line-up of 80s artists, features loads of other festival fun from Silent Discos to Live Karaoke bars along with Camping and Glamping (Glamorous Camping) options.
Originally launched at Henley-on-Thames in 2009, Rewind The 80s Festival boasts the biggest line-up of 80s artists in the world, and in its first three years has featured such iconic 80s names as: Boy George, Tony Hadley, Rick Astley, Gloria Gaynor, Kim Wilde, ABC, Go West, Howard Jones, Nik Kershaw and many more.
2011 saw the first Rewind Festival take place north of the border and take Scotland by storm, and the festival in Henley-on-Thames sell out in advance for the very first time.
