The 80s Rewind Festival Is Back!

It was the golden age of Madonna, MTV and the Moonwalk. It was the time of Pac-Man, the Rubik’s Cube and Flashdance. It was the 1980s, the electric decade!

The world’s biggest 80s music festival returns to South Africa for a 3rd time, and you know what they say… 3rd time lucky! Following a successful tour of Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and the UK, the 80s Rewind Festival will be held at Carnival City in Johannesburg on Saturday 31 January 2015 and at Cape Town’s GrandWest Casino and Entertainment World on Thursday 5 February.

A blast from the past, this rad festival will feature some of the 80’s biggest performers. (To get in the spirit of things, click here and check out this tubular list of 80s slang.)
