The 80s Rewind Festival

The 80s Rewind Festival – the perfect festival for people who normally don’t go to festivals – has just announced it has increased its capacity from last year’s 30,000 to 40,000 due to unprecedented demand for tickets. Hosting a huge line-up of 80s pop giants, the festival will also feature the best of British comedy as well as posh nosh, cocktail bars and karaoke, the return of the Silent Disco, family features and fireworks.

Last year’s inaugural Rewind Festival, lovingly dedicated to staging and celebrating the best music of the 1980s, burst onto the festival scene in the green and pleasant surrounds of historic Henley-on-Thames, known for its cream teas and annual Regatta. This year’s Rewind features an even bigger lineup:

Level 42
Jimmy Somerville
The Weather Girls
Heaven 17
Curiosity Killed the Cat

Sun 22nd Aug:

Kicking off this excellent weekend programme on the Comedy & Karaoke Stage on Friday August 20th will be Mitch Benn, Geoff Norcott, and Mark Felgate, with Geoff Whiting as compere, while on Saturday August 21st comedians include Mark Maier, Martin Beaumont, and Simon Lipson with Miles Crawford as compere. Friday night fun will continue with The Silent Disco, one of last year’s most popular attractions, and something that has to be seen to be believed!
