AN ARRAY of 80s stars have been announced for this year’s Rewind Scotland.
Iconic acts including Bryan Ferry, Foreigner and Lulu will take to the stage at Scone Palace as thousands descend on Perthshire for the retro festival.
Roxy Music star Ferry, playing the festival for the first time, will close the event on Sunday night, while Cold As Ice rockers Foreigner headline on Saturday.
And on Friday night, Martin Kemp will be playing a special DJ set jammed pack with 80s gold.
Last year, the festival drew their biggest crowds so far with a line up which featured comedy, special DJ sets and live music.
Tickets for this year’s event, which takes place from Friday July 19 to Sunday July 21, go on sale today, with event organisers promising to take the festival to “new heights” with their most musically diverse line-up yet.
Katt Lingard, festival event manager, said: “Following our milestone 10th anniversary last year, we are excited to take Rewind into the future with a celebration of not just 80s artists but also legends whose influence spans far beyond the decade.
“We are welcoming a host of fantastic artists who will be performing at the festival for the very first time like Bryan Ferry, Foreigner, The Stranglers, Lulu and Lisa Stansfield.
“It’s going to be a fantastic three days at Scone Palace with something for everyone.”
Lulu, who will play in front of a home crowd, said: “I am excited to come home to Scotland and perform at Rewind for the first time. It is going to be a fantastic weekend of live music from start to finish at Scone Palace.
“I look forward to rocking out with the crowd.”
Fellow Scottish singer Eddi Reader also said she was looking forward to taking part.
She said: “I’m very excited to be performing at Rewind for the first time. The Scottish crowds are always the best.
“I had a wonderful time at Rewind in England four years ago and I’m looking forward to catching up with some of the artists backstage.”
Lisa Stansfield, Belinda Carlisle, Big Country, The Undertones, The Skids, Hipsway and The Primitives are also set to play over the July weekend.
