Thousands of music fans of a certain age will descend on Scone Palace over the weekend for their annual opportunity to rekindle the excitement of their youth.
The Scottish stop for Rewind – the world’s biggest 80s music festival – boasts a who’s who of the decade’s top names from local heroes the Average White Band to Toyah.
Campers who intend to take in the full event begin arriving on Friday with the musical attractions spread out over Saturday and Sunday.
The finishing touches are currently being made to the Scone site overlooking the river Tay.
“It’s looking like the weather is going to be good, we are looking forward to a great weekend,” said Jackie Heartfield of Rewind.
“We are busy getting ready to welcome everyone. Saturday is already a sell-out but some weekend and Sunday tickets are still available.”
The festival’s sixth year at Scone Palace, the headline performances will be from Holly Johnson on Saturday and Adam Ant on Sunday.
Rewind now covers the country with two other festivals at Henley-on-Thames and Cheshire in the coming weeks. Rewind North is in its third year while the original event, Rewind South, has been going for eight years.
Saturday at Perth will feature a newly revitalised Rick Astley who recently released a comeback single and album, Tony Hadley, Marc Almond and Go West among others.
Sunday’s bill includes ABC, Big Country, Midge Ure and China Crisis.
With attendances over both days running into the thousands motorists are advised to be aware that delays in the vicinity of Scone Palace are likely as people arrive and depart from the two-day festival.
