Rewind Festival Summer Festival Latest 2018

REWIND Festival has announced the epic line up for their 10 year Anniversary extravaganza with more acts on the bill and vibrant entertainment than ever before across 9 days. Legendary acts confirmed to perform include:- The Jacksons, Kool and The Gang, Status Quo, OMD and Bonnie Tyler.

Ever since Rewind made its glittery debut at Henley on Thames, in 2009, over 140 acts have graced the stage playing countless hours of hits that have sound tracked and shaped a generation. As of 2014, the hugely popular festival has expanded to 3 different locations, rapidly becoming the highlight of the year for thousands of devoted fans.

Rewind has celebrated the careers of beloved legends such as:- Rick Astley, Bananarama, Jason Donovan, Kim Wilde, Boy George, and many more. This year's line up sees the return of the stars who graced the stage at the inaugural festival including:- Kim Wilde, Midge Ure, Nik Kershaw, Heaven 17, Billy Ocean, Howard Jones, T'Pau, Doctor and The Medics, and China Crisis.

Kim Wilde said:- "I always look forward to the amazing Rewind audiences, still loving the 80's and making us all feel 21 again! Rewind have always made sure the audience comes 1st, and have created a safe and fun playground for families and people of all ages. The atmosphere at Rewind is the best I've ever experienced and I'm always so proud to be on stage singing with all the artistes who's records I still have in my vinyl collection. Happy 10 Years Rewind, you've done us all proud!"

Nik Kershaw said:- "I've loved being part of the Rewind family and am thrilled to be performing at this year's 10th Anniversary gathering on Temple Island Meadows. Happy birthday Rewind South. Let's make it a big 1!"

Francis Rossi of Status Quo said:- "The band are big fans of the Rewind Festivals, there's always a great atmosphere and a welcoming crowd, so we can't wait to take to the stage at Rewind Scotland and play some of everyone's favourite Quo classics! See you there!"

Toyah Willcox said:- "There is nothing quite like Rewind. The atmosphere is electric every time. So many brilliant artists on 1 stage in front of the happiest, bopping festivalgoers. My favourite memories? Holly Johnson, Marc Almond, Jimmy Somerville, The Quo and many more. I've played many times and loved every moment, but Henley 2016 will always stick in my mind. On 1 of the rare occasions it rained, to witness 20,000 umbrellas pogoing up and down was a joy! Rewind proves great music is eternal."

Carol Decker of T'Pau,said:- "In 2009 I performed at the very 1st ever Rewind Festival in Henley on Thames. It was so exciting to help launch a new festival celebrating the fantastic era T'pau was so much a part of. I live locally so it was a very special, personal experience. My children aged 10 and 7 at the time came on stage with me and waved to their school friends and neighbours. I am delighted to take the stage again in 2018 and celebrate Rewind's 10th Anniversary."

Howard Jones said:- "I always look forward to playing the Rewind festivals. The fans give all the artists such a warm reception. I've seen so many brilliant performances over the years; The Boomtown Rats and Heaven 17 to name just 2 and I look forward to many more this year!"

The Doctor of Doctor and The Medics said:- "Performing at Rewind is always phenomenal, but I have also been lucky enough to compere at a number of them. As compere, you get time to really know the crowd, crew, artists and everyone involved. The overwhelming feeling you get is 1 of togetherness with a unique energy and vibrancy that makes it very special to be part of. From the stage, the crowd presents an amazing spectacle; so much so that a new word has entered the English vocabulary... Rewinders! And I am proud to be amongst them. So come and Rewind with us!"

There is no decade like the 80's, the music, the fashion, the energy and spirit continue to influence every facet of popular culture. Its impact has never been more profound than now in the festival's 10th year.

Event organiser, Katt Alexander at Broadwick Live says:- "The Rewind team is really excited to stage the 10th edition of the festival, and celebrate our birthday up and down the country at all 3 festivals with our fantastic crowd. With a line up packed full of iconic artists proving that this music really is forever, 2018's events promise to build on the huge popularity of the festival to date. Alongside favourite music, we will be taking the festival to new heights with more performances, entertainment and experiences than ever before."
