Greatest Hits Radio partners with Rewind Festival 2022

Greatest Hits Radio announces that it is joining as the official broadcast partner for Rewind Festival 2022, bringing exclusive access to the event for its music-loving audience.

The world’s first and biggest 80s music festival, Rewind, takes place across three UK sites in July and August, offering a weekend filled with musical legends, themed venues and pop-up entertainment for all ages.

Kicking of the partnership, Greatest Hits Radio revealed this year’s line-up for the North, South and Scotland events on the Breakfast Show this morning, with presenter Rossie announcing that Holly Johnson, Human League, Wet Wet Wet, Bananarama, Midge Ure, Level 42, Billy Ocean and Kim Wilde are just some of the acts to perform, alongside Greatest Hits Radio’s very own Martin Kemp and Pat Sharp.

Festival goers will see Greatest Hits Radio branding at all three sites, and the station will produce special programming in the run-up to the event, as well broadcasting content from the sites including interviews with the artists. 

Andy Ashton, Content Director for Greatest Hits Radio said “Like Greatest Hits Radio, Rewind Festival is all about bringing the good times and so for us this is a dream partnership. With our very own Martin Kemp and Pat Sharp already on site, our team will be there across all three exciting events, bringing our 80s music-loving audience exclusive access, as well as being the first to share exciting announcements in the lead-up.”

Steve Porter, Executive Producer, Rewind Festivals said “At Rewind HQ we strive to bring the best weekend for our audiences across the UK, with a cracking line-up, camping and Glamping (and not much sleeping!) great food and bars, silent disco, inflatable church and loads of entertainment long into the night.  One thing that we had been missing is a brilliant national radio partner and we are therefore delighted to be joining forces with Greatest Hits Radio.  They have the same ethos as us in presenting the best they can to their audiences, and we can’t wait to work with them in building something special for this year and beyond.”
