The popular United Kingdom festival known for turning back the hands of time to the 1980s is headed to Scotland.
Grab your Jelly Shoes and don’t forget to swap your watch for a Swatch. The ‘80s music festival known as Rewind has nailed down three whole days of memories for its Scotland debut.
“Rewind Scotland,” set for July 29-31 at Scone Palace in Perthshire, takes you back to those thrilling days of yesteryear with a lineup that looks straight out of MTV circa 1985 with performances by Kim Wilde, ABC, Kid Creole & The Coconuts, Heaven 17, Howard Jones, The Human League, Rick Astley, Billy Ocean, Bananarama, Cutting Crew, Modern Romance and other icons of the age, according to the festival’s website.
Keep in mind that “Rewind Scotland” doesn’t replace the original U.K. festival that debuted in Britain in 2009, but is a worthy addition to the Henley-On-Thames event that drew 40,000 last year and aired for the first time on Sky Arts Television.
But back to “Rewind Scotland.” Tickets go on sale Jan. 28 and range from 1-day passes to complete weekend packages. The Henley-On-Thames Rewind Festival, scheduled for Aug. 19-21, also goes up Jan. 28, but the lineup won’t be announced until Jan. 27.
