About 15,000 music fans are today set to be transported back to the 1980s at the Let's Rock Norwich! retro festival at Earlham Park in Norwich.
Bananarama, Tony Hadley, Kim Wilde and Howard Jones are among the stars that will be taking to the stage at the sold-out event in the city park.
Other acts that feature in the festival's line-up include Chesney Hawkes, Captain Sensible, Jaki Graham, Belinda Carlisle, Boney M, Nik Kershaw, Go West and Midge Ure.
It is the ninth year of the Let's Rock! festival tour and the first time it has ever come to Norwich - Let's Rock! orginally started small in the Berkshire village of Cookham attracting 900 people.
Since then it has expanded and this year's tour started in Cookham on May 17. Norwich marks the midway point of the tour, which will reach 100,000 music fans. The festival moves on to Exeter, Southampton and finishes at Clapham Common in London.
