Perth Rewind Festival 2016

Perth Rewind Festival 2016

Come to Rewind Scotland, the annual 80s festival celebrating all things 80s, including musical performances from the likes of Rick Astley, Tony Hadley, Leo Sayer, Adam Ant and many, many more. This year the festival is being held at Scone Palace, Perth, from July 22nd to July 24th. A beautiful venue, glamping (adults much prefer a spot of glamorous camping!), posh nosh, amusements, inflatables and a whole load of fireworks – what more could you want for an unforgettable summer weekend?

 

The Line-Up

Glamping & Camping

Forget the mud and sludge of T in the Park and go for something a lot more comfortable and a lot less work! Let someone else do all the hard work at Rewind and choose to go glamping; they’ll put up your tent and will provide a whole range of facilities, including hot showers, toilets, a pamper parlour, mobile phone charging areas and 24-hour information and security staff. All glamping providers are located within the Pink Moon Campsite. Just remember to book your weekend camping ticket alongside your glamping options!

It’s a lot less rowdy at Rewind, with the campsite located in the picturesque Scone Palace grounds. The campsite is patrolled by stewards 24-hours and there are handy showers and toilets throughout the site. There’s even a dedicated family field for those bringing children.

The campsite opens at 2pm on Friday and closes midday on Monday.

 

Food & Drink

There’s food for every type of palate at this festival. From chunky chips n’ dips to ostrich burgers and Dinky Donuts to The Mac Shack – there’s a cuisine for everyone here. After some Indian street food or a Jumping Bean Burrito, head to the selection of theme bars serving real ales, ciders, gin, Chandon wine and much more. Enjoy a tipple alongside a full itinerary of live bands, music and DJs.

 

Fun & Amusements

From the moment you enter the festival grounds there’s something to see and do. The Friday night welcome party sees a school disco take over the big top tent, as well as a funfair, live music and a variety of food and drink stalls dotted throughout the festival.

Festival traders will open up shop to sell their wares; pick yourself up some clothes, souvenirs or gifts from a range of local traders.

Take the whole family to the Circus Sensible ‘baby’ Big Top, featuring an outdoor play area and circus tent, showcasing comedy shows, circus acts, magic tricks and balloon benders!

Saturday and Sunday will go out with a bang with firework finales each evening after the music has ended.

 

About Scone Palace

festival

Scone Palace is a site of historic significance in Scotland, being the palace of coronation for Scotland’s monarchy before the union. Robert the Bruce was crowned at Scone in 1306 and the last was Charles II in 1651. The first King of Scots, Kenneth MacAlpin, created the Kingdom of Scone in the 9th century at the site and it also once housed the Stone of Destiny. Today, you can tour the palace, take a walk through the glorious grounds and open gardens, and try out the Murray Star Maze!

The festival site is based in Perthshire, a 45-minute drive from the DoubleTree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro hotel.
