The World's Biggest 80s Music Festival

Rewind Scotland, Scone Palace, Perth
23rd - 25th July 2021

Rewind The 80s Music Festival, the world’s first and biggest 80s music festival, is back in 2021 celebrating it’s 10-year-Anniversary at Scone Palace, Perth from Friday 23rd July – Sunday 25th July 2021 with a stellar line up featuring the biggest acts of the 1980’s.

Following the rescheduling of the festival, sadly a couple of acts couldn’t make the new dates due to prior commitments one of whom is Nick Heyward - but Rewind is delighted that Rewind Favourite Marc Almond is available and will join the all three festivals next year.

Marc said “I am very excited to be playing all three Rewind Festivals in 2021. I’ve played Rewind many times before the experience has always been amazing.  I really love the passion and excitement of the Rewind audiences.  Get those Pink Flamingos at the ready and see you in 2021!”

Especially created for the Rewind Festivals, Saturday night will close with  Jimmy Somerville’s Big Band-Tastic Boogie – a hit packed show with a massive big band with brass, strings and special effect incl. the world’s biggest party popper as well as with special guest Sarah Jane Morris recreating their 1986 #1 single ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’.
