What makes Rewind so special?

– May 29, 2019 –

For years now, we’ve seen hundreds of thousands of music fans from all over the world take the annual pilgrimage to Rewind to see iconic artists from the golden era of music!

It’s easy to forget that Rewind isn’t just about the music, and here, we celebrate what else it is that makes the festival so special!

The venue

Capesthorne Hall, Macclesfield

We’re lucky enough to host Rewind North at the stunning Capesthorne Hall!

The Jacobean red brick hall was built in the 18th Century and now, 300 years later, sees tens of thousands of avid music fans and legendary artists alike at Rewind North every year!

We know that the best thing about any weekend at Rewind is, without question, the people.

We’ve heard countless stories of how friendships were made by helping others pitch their tents, making midnight dashes to the loo, mingling with neighbours and tripping over each other in the silent disco!

Rewind is full of the most wonderful people, and it’s you that makes Rewind what it is!
