Slide back in time...for a slice of the 1980s at the annual Rewind Festival.

Eighties fans are in for a real treat later this month when the Rewind Scotland festival returns to Perth for its fifth consecutive year.

Scone Palace is the beatiful setting for the 80s festival which takes place from Friday, July 24 to Sunday, July 26.

For anyone who lived and loved through the 1980s, it’s a not-to-be-missed line up of great music

This year’s Rewind will provide an even bigger bang with the crème de la crème of classic 80s pop music.

The Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey will headline the festival on Saturday night.

And electronic pop sensations OMD, known worldwide for their hit single Enola Gay, will headline on Sunday.

Home grown talent in the form of The Communards and Bronski Beat frontman Jimmy Somerville will take to the stage on Saturday.

Other highlights that day are Howard Jones, Five Star, Imagination, Kid Creole and Altered Images.

On Sunday, OMD will be joined onstage by Kim Wilde, Sister Sledge, Nik Kershaw, Belinda Carlisle, Aswad, Hazel O’Connor and Scottish brothers Hue and Cry.

For anyone who lived and loved through the 1980s, it’s a not-to-be-missed line up of great music.

And the fashions from that fabulous decade will not be overlooked either.

For the crowds are being invited to get into the spirit of the event by donning their leg warmers, puffball skirts and deely boppers! The guys have an easier task – just grab a pair of torn jeans and some Grolsch bottle tops – and you’ll fit right in!

Happily, there are still a few weekend camping tickets available, priced £122.50 for adults, £61.25 for children (three years and under free).

A weekend adult ticket, without camping, costs £105.00 or £52.50 for children. Saturday day tickets for adults and children are sadly sold out.

But there are still tickets for the Sunday, priced £57.50 for adults and £28.75 for children.
