Rewind Festival South80s music and picnics are two of our favourite things, so you can bet we were super-excited about the Rewind South Festival!
Held in Henley-on-Thames on August 21st-23rd, this awesome festival sees the cream of 80s UK pop playing to an enthusiastic festival crowd.
The line-up has to be seen to be believed, with appearances over the weekend from Billy Ocean, The Human league, OMD, Kim Wilde, ABC, Belinda Carlisle and Bananarama.
We’re busy getting our festival kit together. We’ve already packed our rara skirts but thought we’d share our festival essentials below.
