Clumber Park will see a 70s v 80s weekend of concerts later this month to mark the sixth anniversary of the popular retro music concert The Flashback Festival.

Fans of music from those two decades will be in for a treat with some of the greatest artists and bands from that era in action.

The weekend will kick off on Friday, August 21, with the best of the 70s. This line up consists of Boney M, The Real Thing, Hot Chocolate, and Odyssey, and if that wasn’t enough for you, disco legends Sister Sledge will be headlining with an impressive catalogue of hits.

Saturday sees the return of all things 80s. Enthusiasts of this era will be flocking to Clumber Park from all over the UK. The Human League are set to headline the festival. Joining The Human League will be Marc Almond, Jason Donovan, 5 Star, Toyah and Flashback’s favourite compere, The Doctor of Doctor & The Medics… and, if all that wasn’t enough, for the first time Saturday will be opening earlier for a special afternoon set from Soul II Soul.

This year, the festival organisers have decided to expand the facilities to include a Silent Disco which will take place after the event.

Silent discos have taken the festival scene by storm over the past couple of years and can even be found at the UK’s biggest festival – Glastonbury.

The silent disco will run from 11pm through until 2am in the morning, a must for those who like to party until the early hours.
