The 80’s Lockdown Festival is set to start streaming this Saturday 16th May and I must say – the line-up looks MEGA. Oh and it’ll be hosted by legends of gunge – Pat Sharpe and Dave Benson Phillips!

So, who’s set to perform? Well, here’s the list…

Tony Hadley, Wet Wet Wet, ABC, Howard Jones, Midge Ure, Jason Donovan, Toyah, Hue & Cry, Chesney Hawkes, Brother Beyond, Five Star, Rozalla, Sonia, Then Jerico and rather a few more (and even more to be announced).

This special lockdown festival will be kicking off at 7pm and will all be in aid of Child Bereavement UK, a charity that supports families and educates professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, and when a child is facing bereavement.

The 80s Lockdownfest online festival is completely free but if viewers would like to donate to Child Bereavement UK during or after the show there’s details below on how to do that.
