Following last year’s Rewind North and South going ahead ‘against all odds’ organisers are thrilled to announce they’re back – and so is Rewind Scotland.

Making a welcome return to Rewind North this year 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 close Saturday night’s show.

Sunday night at Rewind North will welcome The Human League, who have had five albums and 15 top 20 singles and sold over 20 million records worldwide – including hits Don’t You Want Me, Mirror Man, (Keep Feeling) Fascination, Human and Tell Me When.

On Saturday the main stage show will be hosted by The Doctor (Dr & The Medics) and Sunday by Pat Sharp (Greatest Hits Radio).

Sunday night 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.


The Pink Flamingo Club

And if all this isn’t enough, Rewind is also celebrating the return of The Pink Flamingo Club in the Big Top, an 80s themed nightclub, with headline DJs Gary Davies, Pat Sharp and Rusty Egan spinning all your favourite 80s tunes to keep the party atmosphere going well into the night!

On Friday 5th August Neville Staple (The Specials) will also join the party with a special band set in The Pink Flamingo Club.


And there’s more…

Rewind Festival weekend 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 and stalls for jewellery, tshirts, food and drink.

And if “love is all around” and 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!

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. 


Greatest Hits Radio 

Rewind is delighted to have joined forces with Greatest Hits Radio for 2022.

Andy Ashton, content director for Greatest Hits Radio, said: “Greatest Hits Radio is delighted to be the official radio partner for Rewind 2022.

“As the home of the biggest songs of the 70s, 80s and 90s, Rewind is the perfect partnership for us, and we are as excited as our audience are about these incredible line ups.

“And with our very own Martin Kemp and Pat Sharp set to perform; The Good Times sound like this.”

Yes, this year is bigger than ever and an event for us all to look forward to in this bright and hopeful 2022!
