“80s REWIND FESTIVAL”- The Human League, Kool & The Gang, Bananarama
July 16, 2011 16 Comments
Here’s surely the most bizarre thing you’ll read all day.
The UK-based “80s Rewind Festival” will travel to Australia later this year, and Wollongong has been selected to host the two-day concert.
An absolutely incredible range of classic 1980s acts including The Human League, Kool and the Gang, Bananarama, ABC, Mental As Anything, Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet) and Pseudo Echo will play the weekend-long festival, which will take place at Bluescope Field, Kembla Grange between October 28-30.
See below for ticketing details.
80’s Rewind, which began in the United Kingdom in 2009, has attracted over 30,000 fans each year since its inception. With many of these heritage acts heading to Wollongong for the first time – and with the festival format sure to attract huge numbers of tourists and out-of-town visitors – this event may well be the biggest music event ever staged in the Illawarra region.
This year, Rewind festival hosts two events in the UK – one each in Scotland and England – with The Human League, The Village People, Billy Ocean and Bananarama among the acts featured.
