Rewind Festival 2022: north, south and Scotland 80s line up with Holly Johnson - and how to get tickets

Taking place at Capesthorne Hall, Henley-on-Thames and Scone Palace, Rewind promises three weekends of nostalgia

Thousands of music fans will indulge in a weekend of 1980s nostalgia this summer at one of Rewind Festival’s three events.

Billing itself as “the world’s biggest 80s music festival”, Rewind offers its guests a weekend filled with musical legends, themed venues and pop-up entertainment for all ages.

Many revellers choose to celebrate the kitsch theme of the festival by dressing in the style of the decade, while others come as their favourite 80s film and TV characters.

In 2022, the festival is taking place across three weekends in three different locations: Perth, Macclesfield and Henley-on-Thames.

Here is everything you need to know about it.

When is Rewind Festival 2022?

There are three Rewind Festival weekends to choose from this summer.

The Scotland edition takes place at Scone Palace in Perth from Friday 22 - Sunday 24 July.

The festival’s ‘North’ event is being held at Capesthorne Hall in Macclesfield from Friday 5 - Sunday 7 August.

Finally, the ‘South’ edition of Rewind will take place in Henley-on-Thames from Friday 19 - Sunday 21 August.

Who’s playing?

Holly Johnson, Human League, Wet Wet Wet, Bananarama, Midge Ure, Level 42, Billy Ocean, and Kim Wilde are just some of the acts to perform at this year.

Johnson will headline the Saturday night of the Scottish leg, while Wet Wet Wet will close out the Sunday, part of a line-up that also includes Heaven 17, T’Pau and Heather Small.

For the ‘North’ leg of the festival, Johnson once again tops the bill on the Saturday, while The Human League are the Sunday headliners; Sugarhill Gang, Soul II Soul and The Selecter will also be appearing across a varied line-up.

For the ‘South’ instalment, Johnson and The Human League will once again be taking their place atop the bill on the Saturday and Sunday nights respectively.

“At Rewind HQ we strive to bring the best weekend for our audiences across the UK,” said executive producer Steve Porter.

“With a cracking line-up, camping and Glamping (and not much sleeping!) great food and bars, silent disco, inflatable church, and loads of entertainment long into the night.”

For more information on the line-ups of each event, head to Rewind Festival’s website.

How can I get tickets?

Tickets for all three festival weekends will be on sale from Friday 28 January.

Rewind Festival’s website does not give a time for when they will be made available, but usually, tickets for events like these go live at 9am, sometimes 10am.

Tickets cost as little as £99 for a weekend pass (£30 for 10 - 17 year olds), and £59 for a day ticket (£15 for youngsters).

These are early bird prices, and as more tickets for the festival are sold, costs may increase slightly.
