Jack Up The 80s Festival 2017
Calling all eighties fans! Jack Up The 80's is back for another year to relive the popular era! It is taking place on the Isle of Wight from the 11th - 13th of August 2017!
Jack Up The 80s - What's it about?
The purpose of Jack Up The 80s remains the same, we aim to raise valuable funds and awareness for local Island charities and good causes. With your help they managed to raise over £10,000 for Island charities at JUT80s 2016!
Attendees to the festival continue to embrace the 80s theme and as the past three years have shown, there is a real passion for reliving the good times of Frankie Says and Choose Life t-shirts, florescent headbands, leg warmers, legendary blockbuster movies and of course great music and acts like Jason Donovan and Alexander O’Neal.
Fancy Dress is involved!
It was a decade that committed outrageous crimes against fashion in clothes and hairstyles alike, power suits with massive shoulder pads, shell suits, leg warmers, huge quiffs and giant mobile phones!
Do you remember when leg warmers made you feel footloose? Or when a young boy could transform into a superhero by consuming a banana?! The fashion trends of the 1980s were (unbelievably at the time) considered ultra stylish, but they now translate into fantastic fancy dress.
At Jack Up The 80s there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t join the trend! Some choose to go as love-able 80's characters like Kermit The Frog, the Honey Monster, He-Man & Terminator, others transform themselves into well known 80's icons with Ghostbusters costumes, Teen Wolf fancy dress and She-ra outfits.
