Rewind 80′s Festival: A Night of Legends, Fashion & Fun

Get out your legwarmers, acid washed jeans and boldly printed  t-shirts – the 80’s are back as the Rewind 80’s Festival takes place next week. The Socialite finds out more…

The international 80’s festival Rewind is hitting SA shores on Feb 25th 2012.  The massive event at Durban’s Kings Park Stadium is your excuse to dig out your 80’s gear, pack the car and enjoy a weekend road trip and 80’s party to be remembered.

Originally launched in the UK in 2009, Rewind attracted over 30 000 people.  In its second year the festival grew to sell-out capacity and saw the biggest line up of artists since Live Aid.  It has subsequently been touring the world to massive success.

South Africans will be treated to one of the most rocking line-ups in the festivals history with the following artists included in the bill:

-          Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet

-          Howard Jones

-          Rick Astley

-          Marc Almond – Soft Cell

-          Midge Ure from Ultravox

-          ABC – Martin Fry

-          Nik Kershaw

-          Go West

-          The Village People

-          Imagination – Leee John


So plan a weekend part back in time and join thousands of 80’s fans as they enjoy the biggest 80’s line-up ever to hit South African shores. There will be prizes for the best 80’s costume including a grand prize of a trip to London to experience the Rewind festival London style.
