(CelebrityAccess) — Organizers for the 1980s-themed Rewind Festival brand announced it has been sold by its former owners radio group Global.
“This week the World’s Greatest 80’s Festival changed hands, the new owners have brought back the old management team and we know you will be telling us what changes you liked and what you want to see back,’ Festival organizers said in a post on the event’s Facebook page.
“In the meantime, whilst we have a very short period of transition, please ignore the date and venue information posted this week and we hope to give you confirmed details in the next couple of weeks. Sorry for any inconvenience but hopefully it will be worth it,” the statement added.
According to the Henley Standard, the festival will be run by a consortium that includes its founder and former boss David Heartfield.
“I was approached by a consortium of promoters involved in it. They asked me to come back and run it with them,” Heartfield told the publication. “I’d definitely semi-retired but sometimes people won’t let you go!”
IQ Magazine reported that the consortium also includes Live Nation’s LN-Gaiety Holdings and SJM Concerts.
The festival, which debuted in 2009, currently takes place in three different locations — Temple Island Meadows, Remenham, Berkshire near Henley-on-Thames, England, Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire, England, and Scone Palace, Perthshire in Scotland.
