Rewind Festival 2014: Party Like It's 1989

For the first time ever, Rewind 2014 will be hosting three different shows over the same festival season. For 2014 Rewind will be adding a stop for everyone up north that can't make it to either Perth or Henley. We predict that it is going to be absolutely huge and push Rewind on to become a major festival date for each location this summer.

Here you'll discover new and amazing 80s fancy dress ideas for this years festivities.

To view our previous Rewind articles for inspiration, ideas or simply just to be nosey use these links. Last year was a look at punk, plus size and 80s wigs in our Rewind 2013 article. For Rewind 2012 we provided you with, namely, neon themed solutions. In the Rewind 2011 blog you'll find costume ideas plus information on who was performing. We sent Director Rob to Rewind 2010 to report back first hand on the festivities. He rather kindly went as far as to write an account of the event and took some photos for us too. You'll see loads of 80s costumes and fun fancy dress costumes from the weekend at Henley-on-Thames, before the Scottish leg was added.
