Amazing. Excellent 80s festival. Highly recommended. Brilliant music and bands especially Frim the Jam. Really well organised music event. Would go again.

I’ve pondered long and hard over this review. Friends have asked about my weekend and all I can come up was that it was disappointing. First of all the camping. There’s no other way of putting it except it was dreadful. I knew before I...More

As always, I had a great time at Rewind, but mainly thanks to the wonderful friends I went along with. This year the weather was great, which makes a hell of a difference believe me. The last two years, particularly 2016 was a virtual wash-out....More

We love Rewind. It’s usually a fab, polite, friendly and amazing festival. This year was the 10th anniversary, you would think the organisers would have pulled out all stops to make it memorable. Instead loads of cuts to the facilities and ripping off Rewinders. Although...More

Been going rewind for a few years now, but whoever is running it now has lost the plot. Rewind used to be about over 40's enjoying themselves and not getting ripped off, oh how it has changed. Security staff were a joke, not even allowing...More

My 2nd Rewind South having been in 2013. We arrived just gone noon on Friday and were surprised by the number of tents already pitched. We easily found a pitch we were happy with not too close to the toilets or too far from the...More
