'Retrolicious Reunion!' – ‘80s music at its best

Having trouble keeping up with modern sounds such as dubstep and glitch-hop, and thinking where all the familiar music has gone? Then strap on your retro gear and get a blast from the past with 'Retrolicious Reunion!'

The 1980s-themed music festival is back for the fourth consecutive year, with a line-up featuring the return of previous headlining acts such as Rick Astley, Bananarama and Belinda Carlisle.

The trip down memory lane happens at Fort Canning Park on 19 October, with tickets priced at $125 for standard guests, and $225 for a VIP experience which includes free flow of drinks and finger food, and priority entry from 7pm.

But keep your eyes out for the festival’s early-bird bookings, which entitle the first 1,000 ticket buyers to an exclusive priority discount of 20 per cent for standard tickets and 10 per cent for VIP tickets. Tickets are on sale now at Sistic.

Whether you’re fan of '80s music, a Mambo Jambo addict at Zouk, or you know someone who can’t wait to relive their memories dancing to the Justin Biebers and Katy Perrys of their time, this is set to be a fun party for all ages.

And who more definitive of the era than the artistes who made it so much easier to shake that body? From Rick Astley’s ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, to Belinda Carlisle’s ‘Heaven Is A Place On Earth’, to Bananarama’s ‘Love In The First Degree’, these are all just a few of the chart-toppers of the day that have made their mark in music history.

So dust off those neon tops, tattered jeans and cut-off gloves that you’ve kept hidden in the recesses of yorur wardrobe, because this is one concert where you can show them off again.
