Since it launched a couple of years ago the celebration of Eighties music that is the Rewind Festival has gone from strength to strength. Not only is it set to return again to Henley-On-Thames in August this year, but there is also a second sister festival taking place in Perth, Scotland in July, meaning those of you living in the North of the UK won’t have to travel as far to enjoy some great Eighties music.
Starting with Rewind Scotland then, this festival will be running from July 29th-31st 2011 and is taking place at Scone Palace. Some of the acts confirmed as appearing are The Human League, Billy Ocean, Kim Wilde, Nik Kershaw, Bananarama, ABC and Toyah and that’s just the beginning as there are loads more.
The Rewind festival in Henley-On-Thames will take place from August 19th-21st 2011 and as in previous years is held by the side of the river Thames. Acts appearing here include all those mentioned above plus Village People, The Original Bucks Fizz and Captain Sensible, though again there are far more than this.
Both festivals are not just about the music however, and will feature a fun fair, eating areas and theatre spots. It has been dubbed the perfect festival for people who don’t usually go to festivals, and to further back up this claim you can even book up for the “Glamping” option, where you arrive to find a tent sent up for you so you don’t have to worry about how to insert rod A into slot B.
