Great line up Non stop 80s music Lots of great eating places Warning long wait for local taxis Alcohol prohibited and very overpriced e.g. £22 bottle of wine (tasted like £4 bottle) But a fab weekend with great artists and relaxed and friendly atmosphere

Not many big names at 2017 festival. I would have thought Rewind could have attracted some major 80's bands. If you buy a campervan pass (£80 or £160) you are located furthest away from the festivites. A good 20 minute walk. If you camp for...More

Rewind was excellent fun. Although the line-up wasn't brilliant on the Saturday, still had a great time. Well organised event. Can't take refreshments in, so be prepared to pay lots for food and drinks. Toilets were pretty good and clean. Well worth going.

Great venue for people who like this sort of event with the songs from the 80's, with some very good entertainers. Due to traffic issues we found it easier to use a local taxis service. You can walk down the towpath from the town but...More
