Flashback to the 80s Concert on Saturday 18th August 2012 at Clumber Park.

On Saturday 18th August 2012 the Flashback to the 80s Concert will take place at Clumber Park.
A view of last years 80's Flashback Festival at Clumber Park.

If you love music from the 1980's and live in the East Midlands then this is THE festival for you.
The acts for this years festival are :

Marc Almond
Belinda Carlisle
Go West
The Christians

Lets hope the weather is not too bad for this as this is an outdoor event!
Looking at this stage the weather is looked very good, see weather for Chesterfield (the nearest place to the gig) - Weather for the 80's flashback festival.

If you do go to this I suggest you make your chairs stand out from the crowd as the main problem is finding where you are sat if you go to the toilet as there are so many people here.
There are food stalls around the venue but you can also take in food and a picknik.

Looking forward to seeing Go West again, Saw them in Sheffield in December, See here.

Last year I made a  video of the car journey there from Derby and you can also see brief clips of the 2011 acts and firework display :

Google Streetview just happened to capture the 80's flashback festival sign when it visited Clumber Park in 2009 as you can see HERE.
