The Rewind Festival is an annual music festival that takes place in Temple Island Meadows, Remenham, Berkshire near Henley-on-Thames, England, Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire, England, and Scone Palace, Perthshire in Scotland. It was first held in August 2009.

Originally called "80s Rewind Festival", it showcases bands and solo artists that had success in the 1980s and as such is also known as the 80's Rewind Festival. As well as music, in 2009 the site also featured a fun fair, street entertainment and artists from The Comedy Store.

The festival is run by The Rival Organisation and Into The Groove, and was started after the success of one-off 1980s retro shows of previous years.[1]

Since its creation a number of additional attractions were included at the festival, including a weekend camp site, glamping, firework displays, theme bars, silent disco, roller disco, the Big Sing, live karaoke stage, and the Friday night welcome party.

International expansion to South Africa, Australia, United Arab Emirates and Thailand[edit]

In 2011, the festival expanded to Australia. However, the first attempt met with failure after a change of venue and loss of overseas artists due to lack of work permits.[citation needed]

Since 2012, the festival has expanded internationally to three venues in South Africa (including Cape Town and Johannesburg in 2012, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban in 2015), one in United Arab Emirates (Dubai), and one in Thailand (Bangkok).[5]
