Simon headed over to Capesthorne Hall in Siddington near Macclesfield for the latest Rewind Festival North. The festival is now in it’s fourth year at the Cheshire venue while celebrating is tenth year overall. Simon J. Newbury Photography has been at every Rewind North.
A huge number of acts from the 80s era headed to Cheshire for the weekend festival. Saturday was headlined by The Jacksons.

Other acts on Saturday included: Marc Almond, Leo Sayer, Tiffany, Kim Appleby, The Fizz, Captain Sensible, Billy Ocean, Howard Jones, Steve Harley & The Cockney Rebel and Big Country.
Sunday began with Hue and Cry followed by Soul II Soul. The tempo was then stepped up as Bob Geldof hit the stage with The Boomtown Rats. Also featuring on Sunday were: Musical Youth, Wendy James of Transvision Vamp, Dr & The Medics, Imagination, Heaven 17, Midge Ure and Bonnie Tyler. The festival was brought to a close by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD). OMD were back at the festival for the second headliner set.
