THE Boomtown Rats will perform at this year’s Rewind Festival in Henley.
Bob Geldof’s band will headline on the second day of the two-day Eighties pop festival on Temple Island Meadows on the weekend of August 16 and 17.
The line-up, which was announced on Wednesday, also includes Jason Donovan, Mike and The Mechanics, Holly Johnson, Level 42, Sister Sledge, the Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, UB40, Jimmy Somerville and Marc Almond. Returning acts include Rick Astley and Tony Hadley.
Festival founder David Heartfield, who lives in Rotherfield Greys, said: “It is a great line-up this year with all sorts of little gems. Tom Bailey will be giving his first concert in 27 years — it is a long time since 1987!”
Mr Heartfield paid tribute to the legions of fans who attend the annual show, which is now in its sixth year.
