The Rewind Music fest tour will take place in three-cities Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban.
He will joined by a number of international acts like Go West, Nik Kershaw, Wang Chung, Cutting Crew, Heather Small (ex-M People) and Katrina (ex-Katrina and the Waves), as well as South Africa’s Cinema and Face to Face.
The 80’s Rewind festival is the world’s biggest 80’s festival with three massive festivals in the UK, as well as events in Thailand and the United Arab Emirates. First held in August 2009 in England, the event’s following has grown massively over the last five years and is considered a highlight on the festival circuit.
“The past and the present is intrinsically linked through our memories, and in many instances, music is that link,” says David Sieff, KIA Marketing Director for KIA South Africa.
“We remember the songs we grew up with just as we remember our first car, for example. Few would argue that the ’80s was one of the best decades for music and memories, and KIA is proud to be sponsoring an event like the ’80s REWIND Festival.”
It starts at Carnival City Festival Lawns on Saturday, January 31,
Grand Arena at GrandWest in Cape Town on Thursday, February 5,
Growthpoint Kings Park Stadium, Durban on Saturday, 7.
