THE seventh annual Rewind South festival in Henley opens its gates to campers at midday tomorrow.

The Eighties music extravaganza, which has sold out, will take place on Temple Island Meadows on Saturday and Sunday.

Forty thousand people are expected to attend and main stage acts will include ABC, Belinda Carlisle, the Human League, OMD, Kim Wilde and Henley singer Carol Decker, who is appearing with her band T'Pau.

Talent agency Eight Ray Music, run by Henley singer Jayson Jaurigue, is organising performances on the festival's smaller stages.

Guests with camping tickets can attend an opening night party this evening with a funfair, silent disco, live acoustic music and a performance by Paul Young and Los Pacaminos.

The Saturday and Sunday nights will end with fireworks displays and new attractions on the site include Star Wash, a funfair-style "fun house" with a disco theme, and roving performances by the New York Brass Band.

There will also be a roller disco, market stalls and a "vanity van" where visitors can get beauty treatments.

A one-way system will be in place on sections of Remenham Lane and Remenham Church Lane, off White Hill, during certain hours while marshals guide visitors to the car park. Several boat operators including Hobbs of Henley will be running a river taxi service to the site.
