Following last year’s Rewind North & South going ahead ‘against all odds’ we are thrilled to announce Rewind is back … and this year, following a two-year hiatus, so is Rewind Scotland celebrating a belated 10th Anniversary!!!
Making a welcome return to all the Rewind Festival dates is none other than Holly Johnson, bringing his hit packed catalogue of songs, including Relax, Two Tribes, Power of Love, Love Train, Americanos and many more, to all three closing Saturday night shows.
Sunday night in Scotland will by headlined by the legendary Wet Wet Wet, making their Rewind Scotland debut. Wet Wet Wet have sold more than 15 million singles and albums to date, featuring in the official UK charts for over a colossal 500 weeks and their albums have been certified 20 x platinum in the UK alone.
Rewind Scotland will open with a unique show celebrating over 50 years since the formation of one of the world’s greatest rock bands – Queen. Queen Symphonic features a full symphony orchestra, a fantastic rock band and four soloists from the international productions of the musical We Will Rock You performing some of Queen’s greatest hits including We Will Rock You, Bohemian Rhapsody, Radio Ga Ga, We Are The Champions, A Kind Of Magic and many more. This set was one of the highlights of last year’s Rewind bringing the crowd to a roaring frenzy!
On Saturday, the main stage show will be hosted by The Doctor (Dr. & The Medics) by Pat Sharp (Greatest Hits Radio) on the Sunday.
And if all this isn’t enough, Rewind celebrates the return of The Pink Flamingo Club in the Big Top, an 80’s themed nightclub, with headline DJs Gary Davies, Pat Sharp & Rusty Egan spinning all your favourite 80’s tunes to keep the party atmosphere going well into the night! On Friday 22nd July Neville Staple (from The Specials) will also join the party with a special band set in The Pink Flamingo Club.
Sunday nights will conclude with a fantastic firework display – what better way to end the weekend than with the skies being lit up with a stunning display.
And there’s more!!! Rewind Scotland is not just about who is performing on the main stage, but an event including other exciting entertainment such as Silent Disco, funfair rides, kid-zone with entertainment for the little Rewinders, shops & stalls for jewellery, t-shirts, food & drink.
And if “love is all around” & you fancy tying the knot “come on and let it show” in full Rewind Festival style in the Inflatable Church! Yes, the big church of rubbery love is once again rockin’ 80s vibes.
And for those wanting to make a whole weekend of it there’s the general camping area – the perfect place to pitch your tent! Or for those not wanting a night under canvas there are Campervan or caravan pitches and with shower and toilet facilities available within the campsite everything is only ever a short walk away.
