Other acts playing earlier that day include Kim Wilde, Belinda Carlisle, Odyssey and Bjorn Again - the parodic tribute act of the Swedish pop group ABBA.

The Human League, whose 1981 hit Don’t You Want Me was a number one single on both sides of the Atlantic, will headline the show the following evening.

Also playing on Sunday will be Thompson Twins’ Tom Bailey, Heather Small, Midge Ure, Mica Paris, Chesney Hawkes and the voice of Lighthouse Family Tunde.

The Rewind Festival South 2022 will take place from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 August at Temple Island Meadows, in Henley-on-Thames.
