Following the tradition of 2010 and 2011, the festival organisers are pleased to confirm that Rewind Scotland will once again take place at the historic setting of Scone Palace in Perthshire; home of The Earls of Mansfield and the crowning palace of the Kings of Scotland.
The festival takes place on the weekend of the Friday 26th to Sunday 28th July, and will also feature loads of other festival fun from the Silent Disco to Live Karaoke Bar, plus Camping and Glamping (aka Glamorous Camping) options.
For the ultimate festival experience, Rewind festival-goers can pre-order a When Nature Calls wristband for access to the exclusive 'Loo Lounge' – situated under a luxury stretch marquee with a café and chill out zone. With warm water hand washing facilities and mirrors, these loos are cleaned after every use by uniformed attendants.
Originally launched at Henley-on-Thames in 2009, Rewind The 80s Festival boasts the biggest line-up of 80s artists in the world, and in its first four years has featured iconic 80s stars including Boy George, Village People, The Human League, Gloria Gaynor, Kool & The Gang, Holly Johnson, Bananarama and many more.
2011 saw the first Rewind Festival take place north of the border and take Scotland by storm, while the festival in Henley-on-Thames sold out in advance for the very first time. Following festivals in South Africa in 2012, Rewind's global appeal continues to escalate with festivals in Dubai and Bangkok later this year.
