Rewind Scotland will celebrate its 10th anniversary at Scone Palace, Perth, this summer with a stellar line-up featuring some of the biggest acts of the 1980s.
Wet Wet Wet, Jimmy Somerville, Hue and Cry, Bananarama and Billy Ocean are among those taking to the stage at the event, which runs from Friday July 17 to Sunday July 19.
The festival will be opened by a unique show celebrating 50 years of one of the world’s greatest rock bands, Queen.
Queen Symphonic features a full symphony orchestra, rock band, and four soloists from the international productions of the musical We Will Rock You performing some of the legendary band’s greatest hits.
The party mood will continue into Saturday, with Jimmy Somerville’s Big Band-Tastic Boogie headlining. Specially created for the festivals, the hit-packed show will feature a big band with brass and strings.
There’ll also be the world’s biggest party popper, as well as special guest Sarah Jane Morris recreating the 1986 number one single Don’t Leave Me This Way.

Frontman Kevin Simm said: “We’re very excited to play Rewind for the first time, it looks like a lot of fun!”
Drummer Tommy Cunningham added: “We can’t wait to play all our hits for you, it’ll be a brilliant night.”
