– Two stages with the most popular rock, new wave, synthpop and disco bands from the 80’s –

In between performances, our DJs in the Batcave and Dance Hall will spin the best new wave & synthpop tunes!

While new wavers, EBM lovers and Goth adepts indulge in the BATCAVE stage with old heroes and new talents, from Fields of the Nephilim over Project Pitchfork to Cold Cave, the PGS Stage will be one for thumbs and fingers to lick off. A feast for any straight-up 80s fan!

Featuring our most festive lineup ever on Friday:
The grandiose ‘Björn Again’ opens the festival at 2pm, the perfect warm-up for what’s to come. A Flock Of Seagulls and Midge Ure (ex Ultravox), together good for a full juke-box of sing-along hits continue the party and the live closing act, VILLAGE PEOPLE, will let you go crazy next!

At 10 p.m. the PGS Stage closes its doors and for those who can’t get enough there are the DANCE HALL and THE BATCAVE DJ stages where partying can continue into the early hours!

On Saturday, quality takes center stage:
We open with Nik Kershaw, followed by Earth, Wind & Fire and in the eve we have Nena who surprised us all in 2021 with a terrific concert and finally (20h55) – by popular demand! – THE HUMAN LEAGUE! The fifth band will be revealed in February!

The final day will be one to remember and that will include opener Bow Wow Wow and a real afternoon headliner: Genesis (Classic) featuring Ray Wilson – one of the unsurpassed lead singers of this mythical band! Expect an avalanche of all of Genesis’ classic hits! The third name will be announced in February. The penultimate one is Natalie Imbruglia and the festival will then be closed by OMD.

And also on Saturday and Sunday the DANCE HALL and THE BATCAVE will continue to provide you with the best tunes during and after the LIVE performances!
