Rewind Festival

Billy Ocean perform at last year’s Rewind Festival.

We’re a bit spoiled for choice weekend with so many festivals going on but Rewind is a fan favourite that has been running for almost 10 years.

It brings all the best music acts from the eighties in one place, making it the biggest festival of its kind in the world.

And this year its Scottish version is coming to Perth with huge names like UB40, Status Quo and the Gipsy Kings.

Definitely not one to be missed!
